Perform your own bike maintenance
Bike maintenance is something you can easily do yourself. Bike maintenance can even be fun to do as long as you’ve got access to good bike tools and bike maintenance products. Maintaining your own bicycle can save you a lot of money. You could then spend this money on nice bike upgrades, which you can then fit yourself. A true win-win!
Before you can perform your own bike maintenance, you must first get your hands on good tools. If you really want to do everything yourself, you’ll often need specific tools for bikes. This includes bike tools needed to replace your cassette or to remove cranks from the frame.
Bike tools for your groupset
The drivetrain or groupset of your road bike or mountain bike is often the part on which you’ll have to perform the most regular maintenance. This is why we have a large range of specialist bike tools to make sure you can work on your drivetrain. We have tools for items such as bike chains & cassettes, cranks & bottom brackets and various allen keys & wrenches. Your pedals and your front fork & and headset bearings require specific bike tools as well. With more and more road bikes with disc brakes these days, like mountain bikes they too now need brake bleed kits to bleed hydraulic disc brakes with. With some good bike tools, you can now also maintain your own frame & brakes or get that annoying creak out of your wheel.
Complete your bike workshop
We also carry a variety of pliers. For mechanical breakdowns on the road, a useful multi tool is a must. Under workshop accessories you’ll find all the small items required to complete your bike workshop.
Bike tools for carbon bikes
Does your bike have a carbon frame? Then a torque wrench is essential to prevent damage to your beautiful bike. In order to make sure that after all that hard work everything stays nice and shiny and you don’t break anything, using proper assembly paste and assembly grease is a must. Make sure you use carbon paste with a carbon frame, or you run the risk that your seat post will just start slipping again.
Bike tool kits
Want to get yourself everything you need to perform your own bike maintenance in one go? Then it pays to get yourself a bike tool kit. The larger the kit, the more complete it often is. Most smaller bike tool kits will still allow the majority of home mechanics to perform an array of maintenance requirements themselves.
Bike work stands
In order to optimally perform your bike maintenance, you need to properly secure your bicycle. We offer various bike work stands to that end. This ensures you your bike is properly secured, while still allowing easy access from all sides in order to complete your bike maintenance. Want to show off your bike after all that hard work? Then a display stand will work for you. Rather hang your bike up and out of the way, for instance because you don’t have enough space - or too many bikes? Opt for a storage hookinstead.
Bike maintenance products
Besides all these great bike tools you’ll also be needing several maintenance products. Before you can maintain your bike, you’ll have to clean it first using the right bike cleaners. While you’re at it, use some proper specialist bike brushes which really let you clean all the nooks and crannies. After maintaining your bike, it’s important you lubricate all the moving parts again using the right lubricants and bearing greases.
Mobile bike cleaners
Taking your bike with you on vacation or are you often travelling but want to keep your bike clean? Mobile bike cleaners are a perfect solution. These special cleaners can be brought along in your car so you can clean your bike before you even head home.
