Cycling Tips

Chain Care

To get the best performance from your bike, it is important to keep the chain and gears free of dirt, sand and road grime. A clean, well-lubricated "drive train" makes gear shifting smoother and prevents premature wear to the gears and chain. Many riders perform this quick-lube routine after each ride.

  1. Position the bike so that the crank can be turned. (It is easiest if the chain is on the middle of the freewheel cogs.)
  2. Use a light lubricant designed specifically for lubricating bike chains. Plastic containers with a drip applicator make it easy to get the lubrication exactly where you want it.
  3. Turn the cranks while holding a rag around the chain to clean off excess road grime.
  4. Place the nozzle of the lube container against the outer edge of the chain where it is coming over the freewheel cogs. Slowly turn the crank clockwise. Repeat this technique on the inner edge of the chain. Turn the cranks a few times after both edges of the chain have been lubed. This will pull the lube into the chain.
  5. Repeat step 3 to remove excess lubrication from the outside of the chain so that it doesn't collect road grit.
