Safely oil your chain

The last thing you want is oil splashing onto your wheels rim or disk brake rotors – as this will lead to dangerous brake failure 

safely oiling bike chains
Keep oil off wheel rims

Place a piece of cardboard between the chain and your back wheel

Oiling bike chains
Applying lube to bike chain

Place nozzle of chosen lube onto chain (only bottom section – as only this touches cogs)  slowly turn pedals backwards and squeeze container gently to evenly apply oil to every link.

Wipe any excess lube off with a tissue / cloth and carefully remove the cardboard.

 

Post Ride De-Grease

How often should you bikes chain set be de-greased ??

After every ride – we believe 🚴‍♂️
 
As part of your post ride bike wash – use a paintbrush dipped in de-greaser to clean – chain, jockey wheels and cogs (by spinning peddles backwards)
 
Then wash it all off – allow to dry – we leave ours overnight- then re apply lube to suit riding conditions- wet or dry to chain sets and other moving parts 😎
