Give Your Bicycle an ABC Quick Check

An easy way to make sure your bike is in good working order is to do an ABC Quick Check.

Air: Be sure you have enough air in your tires

Brakes: Look to see that your brake pads are not worn

Chain and Cranks: Pull on your cranks to see that they are not loose and look to see that the chain is not rusted and it is free of gunk

Quick Release: Make sure all quick releases are closed

Check: Take a slow brief ride to check that your bike is working properly
