1. Daily basic inspection of bicycle consumables
Unlike cars, bicycles do not have a dashboard or automatic detectors, and they will not notify or remind the car. All daily inspection items need to be checked by the owner or the car shop. Establishing the habit of daily basic inspection will help to find and replace the consumables that affect safety before the vehicle breaks down. Bicycles are more critical to our riding safety. Before riding, we must pay attention to checking the condition of bicycles to reduce the risk of riding.
Consumables consumption speed of bicycles in order: Chain > Tire > Brake Pad > Freewheel > Bearing > Chainring
Other bicycle components and consumables also need to be inspected regularly, but they may involve professionals, and it is recommended that they be checked by professionals regularly.

It is recommended that you carry out complete maintenance for your bicycle at least once a year. Maintenance is not just a car wash. Maintenance services include testing consumables/disassembly and cleaning of flywheels/chains / large plates/front and rear derailleurs/brake calipers/body cleaning and waxing.
During the cleaning and waxing process of the frame and front fork, the frame will be inspected for any abnormality. During the maintenance process, the technicians have professional skills. During the process, they often found cracks in the corners of the frame that were not easy to see. Before an accident occurs, check the safety of the rider's bicycle.
The cleaned parts will be added with various special mechanical lubricants according to the parts. During the process of re-installing the parts on the car, the technician will help the car owner to check whether the parts need to be replaced. Such as BB bearing/guide wheel bearing/wire resistance... These are items that ordinary car owners cannot check during equipment maintenance at home. If the parts are abnormal or damaged to a state that affects safety, the technician will also inform the car owner, and the car owner will decide whether to replace them or not.
