Like a car which needs an annual APK (MOT), the maintenance of your bike is important. Good maintenance keeps your bike parts in good condition, so wear and tear can be limited. In addition, in some situations it is important that you can prove that you have had your bike serviced regularly so that the warranty remains valid. As the manufacturer's warranty can expire if a defect is caused by insufficient or incorrect maintenance.
We recommend having a first service carried out within the first six months or after 500 km. Cycling causes the material of your bike to move. Think of spokes, bolts and nuts that can vibrate and come undone. If you wait too long, this can cause bigger problems. A loose spoke, for example, can cause a bent wheel.
After this first service it is advisable to have your bike serviced once a year or to maintain your bike properly yourself. A service or maintenance can be performed by Mantel or a local bike repair shop. Make sure you keep the invoice for the warranty on your bike.
If you like to maintain your bike yourself, you'll find tips and explanations in our blogs on what proper maintenance of your bike entails.
