Depending on how often you use your bicycle will determine how often you should have your bicycle serviced. If you ride your bicycle on a frequent basis, it is recommended to do a general cleaning yourself about once a month. This can include a basic rinse and wipe down and also using a degreaser and reapplying lubricants. A basic tune-up service should be done about every two to three months. Bicycles Unlimited offers a basic tune-up that will check your bike for safe operation and any adjustments that are needed. These adjustment checks include the shifting system, brake adjustment, cables and housings, wheels, brackets, and bearings. Full suspension bikes will also have their bolts and fasteners checked and torqued to your specific bicycle’s manufacturer specifications.
