It goes without saying that your safety is essential. Patapsco Bicycles prides itself on knowing how to keep your bike in top condition. Like any mode of transport your bike needs to be looked after and regularly checked for wear and tear. That's where Patapsco Bicycles comes in!
Patapsco Bicycles will check your bike at the Mount Airy Main Street Farmers' Market on Wednesday, September 18th. This includes checking for wear, damage and ensuring your bike is safe to ride. Expertly trained bike mechanics will provide you with a free bike check to spot any problems before they develop into bigger ones. They will check all bikes including all kids and adults bikes and types such as full suspension mountain bikes or electric bikes.
What does Patapsco Bicycles check?
With their free bike check they will inspect points across all key areas of your bike. These include:
Frame, Saddle & Handlebar
Wheels; including Tires, Rims, Spokes and Hubs
Brake system; including Levers, Calipers, Pads and Cables / Hoses
Drivetrain; including Gears, Levers, Chain, Bottom Bracket, Cranks and Cables
Patapsco will carry out what is called an ‘Safety Check’ on the above areas, checking the bike thoroughly from top to bottom and assessing all elements for signs of wear, damage or adjustment requirements.
This will either confirm that your bike is in good condition to continue riding, or it will determine if any maintenance or service is required in order to maintain safe and efficient cycling. If they spot a problem that requires a service they can check in your bike right then so it can be repaired by one of their fully qualified mechanics.
