TIPS - BEFORE DEPARTURE CHECK YOUR BIKE
In order to avoid unpleasant surprises during the tour, our bike guides advise you to take your bike before your departure:
> Check the rims: the wheel must turn in a circle.
> Check wheel spokes
> Check the tyre profile and ensure there is no visible damage.
> Check tyre pressure - ideal for mountain bikes 1.8 - 2.5 bar (depending on tyres and weight)
> Adjust the brakes well (lever action)
> Check the brake pads to see if they are still sufficient.
> Check the brake disc (wear or side impact)
> Check frames for cracks or damage
> Check lower brackets, pedal bearings or control bearings
> Set the saddle to the correct height
> Tighten the handlebars correctly
> Set the pedal click activation correctly
> Clean and oil the chain well
> Check gearbox and gears (also under load) and adjust them if necessary, check gearbox protection
> Adjust and control the shock absorber according to the driver's weight (functionality)
