Five Point Safety Check
Tyres and Wheels
- Spin it – does it roll and keep on rolling without strange noises or cracking. Does it spin straight or does it wobble? If there’s noises or it wobbles it needs attention.
- Does it have plenty of air in it? Is it worn, cracked? Tyre pressure should be roughly 30-40psi. Cracked and worn tyres will cause punctures, get them replaced when you can.
- Wiggle it from side to side – does it wobble. If so check the quick releases or nuts make sure they are correctly fastened.
- Squeeze them, do they pull into the bars? Are they hard to pull with 1-2 fingers only? If the brakes pull into the bars – you need to adjust your brakes or replace your brake pads. If they are hard to pull, you need to adjust them or oil them. See the mechanics.
Bar and Stem
- Make sure your bars and stem are fastened, quickly check the screws and make sure they are tight or wiggle your bars see if you can move them. If so tighten them.
- Is your seat fastened and at the right height? Make sure the fastener is turned towards the back.
Chain and Gears
- Is your chain clean, free of lots of grease and grime? Does it rub anywhere, you’ll hear it rubbing? Does your bike spin through it’s gears without slipping, clunking? If you aren’t getting all your gears or the chains rubbing you need to adjust your gears, and always keep the chain clean it’s what keeps your bike going.
- Look over your helmet, is it scratched, old and brittle looking? Is it worthy of protecting you head? Helmets wear from being left in the sun, heat, cold, look over it and make sure it’s safe.
