How to take care of your chain

  • Check if the chain has lengthened over time - this can be done with specific tools, or at any local bike shop
  • Make sure that your chain is always sufficiently oiled. This not only protects the chain from premature wear, but also protects the entire drive system.
  • If the chain feels dry, clean it with a dry cloth first and then oil it with chain oil. To do this, turn the pedals backwards so that the chain oil is evenly distributed.
  • The belt drive does not need chain oil, but should be cleaned regularly with an old toothbrush, clean water and soap. 
  • Avoid contact between lubricant and disc brake, brake pads and rims.
