Taking Care Of Your Giant Roam Hybrid Bike

Below are tips to remember when taking care of your Giant Roam hybrid bike

  1. Make sure the tires of your Giant Roam tyres are inflated to the correct pressure (a pressure guide can be found on the sidewall of the tyre) and that they are not ripped.
  2. Make sure your brakes are in working order. If both brake pads do not effectively touch the rim or disc, do not ride your bike. If necessary, adjust your brakes according to the instructions.
  3. Verify that the wheels are securely fastened and that there is no play. If necessary, tighten the quick release orthru-axle.
  4. Examine your Giant roam brake pads for signs of wear. Brake pads that are worn out can become completely ineffective, which is extremely dangerous. When the groove pattern in the friction material has worn smooth, rim brake pads should be replaced. When there is less than 1mm of friction material left on disc brake pads, they should be replaced.
  5. Clean, degrease, and lubricate your Giant Roam drivetrain completely to stop rusting. This will reduce pedaling noise and protect the pedals from premature wear. Chain rings, cranks, cassette, derailleurs, and chain are all part of the drivetrain.
  6. Look for evidence of wear, notably cracks, on the frame, wheels, brakes, and tyres. It’s a good idea to clean your bike first.
  7. Never use a pressure washer to clean your bike since the bearings might be easily damaged.
