Get your bike ready for spring – in just five steps!

Winter is finally coming to a close and it’s probably safe to say spring has sprung. Time to free those neglected bikes from their cobwebs and show them the light of day! However, before taking to the saddle, make sure to run a thorough check before riding into the sunset.

We’ve put together a checklist of five steps to whip your bike into shape for springtime. And don’t worry – these fixes are easy, even if you’re a bit on the mechanically challenged side.

Step 1: Clean

Roughly clean the bicycle frame with a brush. Spraying it with bike and let it do its work for a bit. Clean the frame down with a sponge and lukewarm water before drying it off. If your bike is caked with dirt, try using a high-pressure cleaner at a distance of at least 30 cm. Dirt caught in the chain is best removed with a designated chain cleaner.

Step 2: Grease

Particularly the suspension fork, shock absorbers, break and shift cables as well as the chain and driving parts need to be greased. As regards the last two, less is more. So use the chain oil sparingly. Your best bet is to run the chain through a dry cloth after you’ve oiled it. To refresh those colours and make your trusted bike shine, apply a protective spray – it preserves bicycle parts and acts as a water-repellent.

Step 3: Screw

Check the screws on the handlebars, stem, cranks and chain rings and tighten them if required. If you have a carbon bike, you should pay particular attention to the torque. Make sure to check all other moveable parts, too. Use a chain wear indicator to determine how worn your chain is. If required, replace it with a chin tool.

Step 5: Lights, bell and lock

In the interest of your own safety, make sure your he bell, lights and lock all work and replace where needed. Are the front and backlight still working? You may have to replace the batteries or the light itself. If your bike has a good old-fashioned dynamo system, check the light cables if one of the lights is not working.

Prepare for little emergency repairs

No matter how well prepared your bike is for the start of the season, you may still have to carry out the odd emergency repair at a later stage. For this reason, it is best to have a repair kit with all basic tools in your saddle bag. More advanced hobby mechanics should also consider equipping their bike with a hand pump and a replacement inner tube.

I’m not a great cook, struggle with home decorating and am incapable of properly assembling IKEA furniture. So at Galaxus, I’m a marketing manager in charge of sports. And sports is also what I love doing best in my spare time: cycling, tennis, skiing, swimming or working out at the gym. I’m also passionate about football and a big Bayern Munich supporter.
