How To Keep Your New Bike New

We want to help you enjoy your new bicycle as long as possible. To do that, we've provided the following maintenance checklists for mountain, road, electric, and kids bikes. Many of these tasks can be done at home, but for the ones that you can't, our service department would love to be of assistance.
