Bicycle Maintenance Made Easy

Like any macine, a bicycle will work better and last longer if you care for it properly. Get in the habit of checking your bike regularly – simple checks and maintenance can help you enjoy hassle-free riding and avoid repairs.

The “M check” is a simple way to make sure your bike is safe to ride.

What you’ll need:

  • A bike pump

  • A set of allen keys
