The correct way to lube your bike

You should generally lube your bicycle fifteen hours or so before riding, as fast roles right before you're taking off routinely does not get everything lubed. Some lube roles will last for more rides, though if things get loud or shifting gets sticky, it is time to lube. Here is the simple way to lube your bicycle :

It also helps to discover a spot to steady your hand like the frame while you move the pedals around and around. Ensure you watch out for the cranks and chain rings as they move around.

2 - Front Deraileur On the front defaileur, lube the pivots. Employ a spot of lube everywhere you can see movement when you move the shift lever.

3 - Rear deraileur like the front deraileur, lube the pivots.

4 - Pedals There are some sorts of clipless pedals that will have to have the release mechanism lubed. You must only lube this mechanism if you have this kind of pedal.

5 - Everything into motion Pedal around, shift your gears, and bounce your bicycle around. If you hear anything squeak, there is a moving part there are it should be lubed instantly.

6 - Wipe it all clean Once you have lubed everything and wiped it all around, simply wipe it all back off. Employ a rag to wipe away all of the lube you used, including all of the lube off the chain. Wiping it away will leave the lube between the parts but clean it away from everywhere it's not required. This can keep your bicycle from picking up dust while you ride.
