TIPS
ABC Quick Check

AIR

  • Inflate tires based on the pressure indicated on the sidewall of each tire.
  • Use a pressure gauge
  • Check for damage on tire threads and sidewalls.

BRAKES

  • Inspect pads. Replace pad if it is less than a quarter of an inch already.
  • Check pad adjustment. Make sure they do not rub tires or dive into spokes.
  • check brake level travel. It should be at least one inch between bar and lever when applied.

CRANKS, CHAIN AND CASETTE

  • Make sure that your crank bolts are tight. Lube the threads and nothing else
  • Lubricate your chain with wax-based lubricant (oil-based lubricants attract dirt.)
  • Check your chain for wear. Twelve links should measure no more than 12 and 1/8 inches.
  • If your chain skips on your cassette, you might need a new one or an adjustment on the brake adjuster.
  • Plan ahead and prepare.
  • Travel and camp on durable surface.
  • Dispose waste properly.
  • Leave what you find
  • Minimize campfire impacts.
  • Respect wildlife.
  • Be considerate of other visitors.
