High Gear Cyclery is highly committed to providing excellent bike maintenance to our customers. We emphasize the importance of regular service and maintenance of your bike and it’s components. This ensures the highest level of safety, and preserves optimized function for your bike.
Servicing these main component is our top priority:
• Brake pads
• Gear cables
Brake pads absorb a maximum amount of friction in normal use. Over time, they naturally wear out – potentially impacting performance and safely. Brake pad replacement is an important maintenance service. Gear cables are subject to frequent high stress during use. The repetitive tension on cables creates a “stretching-out” of gear cables over time. Failed gears can result in slippage and gear change due to the wear. Maintenance of the chain will help avoid a chain brake during use (this sucks), an unwelcome event. Over time the chain will experience normal wear and can weaken without regular bike service and maintenance.
These components – along with all other mechanical and safety features, including correctly inflated tires – are the hallmarks of superior bike service. We are experts in our craft.
