Clean It Like You Mean It

Muddy bike

Riding in Juneau means riding in the rain, especially if you are commuting. The wet weather means more grime on the derailleurs, chain and the frame. Taking the time to routinely clean your bike is time well spent, ultimately prolonging the useful life of your bike.

Mechanic Tip: Be Prepared For Flats

Always be prepared for more than one flat on a ride. The roads around Juneau can be a minefield of tire puncturing debris, and carrying a tube as well as a patch kit, or just two tubes can mean the difference between completing your ride and calling for a roadside pick up!
