Just like your car, a mountain bike needs maintenance. To properly maintain your MTB, you will have to lubricate it and provide it with new brake pads or other parts. Fortunately, a lot of these parts are fairly easy to replace yourself and watching YouTube videos can help you with that.
Construction of a mountain bike
If you buy a mountain bike, it is built with parts from brands such as Shimano, Sram, Magura or, for example, MicroSHIFT. Depending on the model and age, your bike can be supplied with a 9, 10, 11 or 12 speed drive. This can be found in the specifications of the bicycle. When you know this, it is also easier to buy new mountain bike parts. Many bicycle shops ask you for this information.
Maintaining your mountain bike
Mountain bike parts that wear out require regular maintenance. With the proper maintenance of your drive such as your bicycle chain, cassette, derailleur wheels and chainring, the lifespan will be longer. Therefore, clean your bicycle thoroughly with water and special cleaning agents after every bike ride and do not forget to lubricate the parts after cleaning. Various products can be found in our webshop for maintaining and lubricating your bicycle.
Replacing MTB parts
Despite all your effort and regular cleaning and lubrication of your mountain bike, there are still parts that need to be replaced. As a rule of thumb, you can assume that you need a new cassette, bicycle chain, derailleur wheels and chainring between 1000 and 3000 km. The degree of wear has to do with how intensively you use your mountain bike and factors such as rider strength and maintenance. You can visit our website to replace these parts.
