Oxygen Bike Maintenance
Lubrication of bike components
Your bike's condition will change after every trip and generally the more you ride the more regular bike maintenance will be required. We recommend that you do carry out regular maintenance checks. Please see a table below for a guide on how often to carry out regular maintenance tasks.
|Component||Frequency||Lubricant||How to lubricate|
Please note that the above table is just an example on different kinds of lubricants that can be used and a frequency of using them. Please never use any spray degreasers for lubrication. Always contact your bike dealer for the best advice on what type of lubricant to use. If you feel uncomfortable with doing the routine maintenance by yourself, please use a qualified bicycle mechanic.
