Keep your bicycle working by following this simple
maintenance checklist. Visit the Bike Hub on campus or one of Flagstaff's many bicycle shops for further assistance.
- Saddle: With the ball of
the foot on the pedal while it is in the lowest position, adjust the seat
height so that your legs bend only slightly. Tighten the seat securely.
- Brakes: Your brake(s) must
be able to come to a complete stop on dry, level, or clean pavement.
- Handlebars: Handlebar
grips should be below your shoulders to allow safe maneuverability and
control of your bicycle.
- Pedals: Keep them greased.
Make sure they have reflectors.
- Wheels and spokes: Keep wheels tight and replace broken spokes promptly. When
in doubt, take it to an expert.
- Chain: Lubricate your chain often with a dry lube, especially after it rains or snows.
