Bike Service Interval

How often should I have my bike serviced?
Annual check-ups are a must to ensure you’re getting the most from your mountain bike.

What should my service schedule be?
We recommend the following basic service schedule for your various bike parts:

  • Wheels: check tension yearly
  • Tire pressure: every two weeks
  • Cables/housing: annually for mountain bikes, every two years on road bikes
  • Hubs: every two years on cup/cone, as needed for sealed cartridge bearing hubs
  • Bottom bracket: new one/bearings as needed
  • Headsets: bearings as needed
  • Chain: check for wear annually, lube monthly
  • Brakes: brake pads, hydraulic lines, rotors
  • Tires: inspect for wear, cuts, holes monthly
  • Chainrings: check for wear and tighten the bolts twice a year
  • Derailleurs: check for lateral play, worn pulleys twice a year
  • Seatpost/saddle: pull apart and remove from frame to grease annually

What should I do between servicing?
You should be doing the ABC Quick Check (Air, Brakes, Chain, Quick Releases, short check-out ride before setting out). You can also check out the League’s  bicycle safety basics which happens to have been written by our founder.

Mountain Bike Suspension Service

Some bike parts require maintenance to keep them from getting damaged. Suspension is one of these parts. If your bike sits around in the garage for months at a time, the lubricating fluid in your fork and rear shock can break down.

TrailWerks recommends the following basic service schedule for your suspension:

  • Suspension fork: service the lowers annually
  • Rear shock: air can seals, hardware and damper check annually
  • Suspension pivots: check for wear annually
