In today’s article, you discussed elaborately BMX bike maintenance guidelines. So, bike maintenance is taking care of your bike after you’re done riding at the end of the day.
I just thought of this. So, I had to immediately make this article so next time ride that you can go out and just read enough to worry about anything falling apart or any parts of the BMX bike being missed or properly used.
So, let’s talk about bikes and the number one problem and I guess the number one problem is the bike maintenance problem. So here we are going to details to manage the maintenance problem.
I mean, normally most not either may the stem or the headset or maybe the seat tube. There is you need a standard six-millimeter Allen key elementary, whatever you want to call it, I got here and the stem.
So, when I tie in the stem, there’s a specific pattern and you go to it, you have to do it an X so that you properly have each bolt under the same pressure so that the stem closes properly and it holds the bars correctly.
So that’s very important well the next thing and most commonly happens with my bike beside it coming on loosened over the bike pedals and the process is also the same for BMX bikes for adults.
My pedals always, I don’t know why it’s just on this BMX bike. They come loose and then they rattle and I like to disrupt my bike and it’s really annoying when you have a loose paddle.
When you’re riding so highly remembering, taking care of that with a pedal wrench. So, this pedal wrenches the standard ranch is just a normal ranch.
Do you want to go forward on both sides? Because one side of the BMX bike I think it’s the lesson has averse.
The lesson has a reverse thread, so it’s going forwards to tighten it and not going backward to keep that in mind, and do you a ride your bike and you have squeak squeaky cranks.
I think this is all how this happens. A lot of us it’s really annoying when like when your friends even riding right next to them, like the whole time.
There is we got squeaky as kinks and I really hate it really bugs the heck out of me and there is we have two alternatives. First, I’m gonna show you the recommendation of your BMX bike parts.
This is just if you look the things carefully and you really don’t need to care about your BMX bike. So, we’re gonna use WD 40 in this and sprayed it in there.
Most likely it’ll cause the noise to go away, but that’s not really recommended. There is something you need to concern about pedal fit hopefully this fits here on the pedal and the difference here is to observe, the way to tighten your pedals is to go out, to get anybody, and act like you’re riding your bike.
I’d recommend all-purpose grease and I take apart your cranks and with some grease in a little area, anything and put some green right there and more oftentimes than it’ll stop the noise.
You should grease every single part on your BMX bike. That’s metal and so when you put it in your forks, I grease it when I’m putting it in.
So, there is you need some paint to manage its roughness and also you need to grease it. The reason why I grease it is so that laid down on the road.
When you need to take your BMX bike apart, it’s easier to come apart and this prevents some protocol it’s called some kind of fusion, and this happens a lot with the cranks and the cranks are just a piece of metal and somehow, they fuse.
Then it’s really artistic apart and there is you some grease and you need to prevent it, it keeps you quiet, keeps it by function and lubricated stuff and that’s really awesome.
So, the next thing, I don’t know if this is ever happening, but it happens to me quite often when I don’t own a BMX bike for a while.
I need to put air in my tire and there is if your BMX bike sits for a while and there is you don’t need any extra science knowledge behind it, but most often areas and so also the tube.
This is some crazy method. I don’t know how it happens and it really an ongoing process and so before I turned the bike and it’s so important to focus on the bike rim.
People commonly like to ride in street parks and there is you can ride everywhere so easily. There is you should need to manage around 60, 65 PSI and this is a street tire and you might want less.
If you ride park there, is you might want more dirt and this is probably a lot more. I don’t know. It’s all to you. But I just like to stay on 60 to 65 and there is also you need putting some air on the tire.
It’s simple and you just hook it up, you press it in there. Look at the dial 60 PSI. You’re good to go. 65 PSI. You’re good to go but keep an eye don’t over.
Don’t over-pressurize your tire. Cause sometimes tires have. PSI limits, like can go to, I know some tires in Galway, like one 50.
That’s pretty insane. So, I’m can only go to 50. So just keep that in mind when you’re approaching every tire.
So, another thing that I really can’t show you with my hands or anything is a loose chain. Some people like a loose chain. If you ride street, if you have a free coaster, some people don’t. I just think the noise really annoys me.
So, this is when I go into the back then you will need to pull the wheel back and tightening it up, not make sure not to do it, and then you can cause some problems with your drive.
Then you need to train your channel to make them like some and there is you hear a clicking noise. If you ever hear that then you need to take it out and redo it, put a little bit low, put it a little looser.
You’ll probably like that. I sometimes have problems seeing, but not really. You just got to tighten up once, make sure not to overtime the bulks, that one real crack.
It’s probably the weakest of all the bolts in the boat I’ve seen on crack a lot of times to do it. If you have hub guards like mine, the zip ties make sure the zip ties are always tying.
Cause it sometimes one of the zip ties crack the hub rattles around the bike and it makes a noise and really maybe lights like probably needs lights.
If you don’t have lights on your BMX bike. It has happened not to me, which probably looking at. Just maybe keep your bike clean man. Just keep it by cleaning.
If you like to do this, we think you can do it so easily and there, is you no need do much with the grips and we guess if you have and if you have a throttle grip, let’s say your grips are a little thoughtfully.
There’s probably some kind of debris in there. Like most likely dirt and just go in there with an air press with an air hose going and just spread it out and I could also work and I’m thinking that’s about it.
