New bike service - what checks ?

Postby mjw123 » Fri Oct 12, 2012 08:17 am

Hi,

I've had my Ribble Sportive Bianco about 3months now and am very pleased with it, i've only done about 300miles but i guess it needs some basic checking, tightening etc.

Is there a good youtube clip i could follow or a blog post ?

TIA,
Mike.

Not sure, make a search on youtube, theres plenty of vids so something might be on there!

Otherwise just check everythigns still tight, no wobbly bits.

300 miles would be a checkover. Do it your self or pay some one to spend 10 minutes cheking stuff (probably less) and take £15-£20 of you for the pleasure.
