What do you do if you want to take your bikes on holiday? You can't exactly cycle there in most cases, but you'd like to cycle around once you get there. The answer is to simply attach your bikes to your car using a bike rack, and then drive them there. It's a lot easier than taking them on public transport, and cheaper than renting bikes once you get there.
The last thing you want when you've gotten out on the road or trail is to have a problem with your bike. So, here are a few quick tune-ups you should do before you hit the road.
Brakes: Ensuring your brakes are working well is vitally important. Make sure you check your pads often to prevent rim damage and to ensure that your bike actually stops when it is supposed to.
Itâ€™s actually quite easy to do routine maintenance on your own bike. And having the right tools for the job can mean the difference between enjoying an all-day ride and having to pack your bike up and head back home when something goes awry.
So, what tools do you need to take along for the ride? First and foremost, you should have the tools to repair a flat fire. Next, invest in the tools needed to maintain your chain and brakes.
