CHECK THE SPOKE TENSION AND WHEEL TRUING


Correct tension and truing are essential to determine the wheel’s strength and durability. You should have the wheels and spokes trued and tensioned about once a year (if your ride often).


Bicycle spoke rings can be plucked just like any other stringed instrument such as a guitar or a harp. Listen to the pitch created by the plucking. If the pitch is higher, the spoke is tighter. Remember that the optimum pitch does not depend on the spoke’s thickness. Plucking of strings is recommended to do to every other ride a quick check of all spokes to make sure they all have nice high notes.


Loose, broken, or damaged spokes can affect the tension of the rest of the spokes, resulting in an untrue wheel. The wheel’s tension is affected by the type of terrain being ridden on, the weight of the rider, outside forces received by the rims, the type of tires, and the pressure of the tires.


Once you start experiencing any of the signs, immediately bring in your bike or electric bicycle at The ReCYCLIST Electric Bike & Bicycle Shop in West Los Angeles and our bike mechanics will be happy to assist you.

CHECK THE BEARINGS AND FREEHUBS


Bearings are the next most vital part of your wheelset. These need to be checked regularly by professional bike mechanics. Checking the wheel bearing adjustments every month is highly recommended to have smooth ride while on the road.


If you ride only on flawless dry roads and in perfect weather conditions, it is recommended that you still check your bearings at least every 8 weeks. While the wheel is attached to the bike, try to move the wheel from side to side, if you feel it’s loose, adjust accordingly. Clean and re-grease the wheel’s bearings. Remove the adaptors and washers. Clean them with a dry rag and a degreaser. Removing the hub isn’t necessary.

CHECK THE RIMS AND BREAK SURFACE

Rims should be checked four times a year or quarterly by professionals, both internally and externally. Check for hairline cracks and for signs of damage that might affect the seating of the tires. Check for loss of sealant, correct placement of the rim strip, and make sure there are no loose metal shards on the rim.


Again if these problems are present in your bike or electric bicycle along with thru axles and tire issues, call West Los Angeles The ReCYCLIST Electric Bike and Bicycle Shop at 310-905-5386 to Schedule an Appointment.
