USA Cycling

“We champion each mile, milestone, memory and early morning in the saddle. We believe the start line is as sacred as the town line and the coffee shop as good a reward as the podium. And we cheer just as hard for training wheels coming off as we do for the Olympic Games. Because cycling isn’t just a race or category or type of bike, it’s a way of life. And we’re the passionate caretakers of that lifestyle, amplifying those who represent the best of cycling and championing all who believe in the power of the bike.”


World Bicycle Relief

World Bicycle Relief mobilizes people through The Power of Bicycles. “We are committed to helping people conquer the challenge of distance, achieve independence and thrive. In developing countries, millions of people walk for miles each day just to survive. On foot, individuals race against the sun to complete everyday tasks. World Bicycle Relief delivers specially designed, locally assembled, rugged bicycles for people in need.”

Mountain bike advice fireside with Mike D. @viciouscyclestx Clean and lube your chainSo, there’s already a whole slew of advice, tips, and tricks of what to do with your bikes post ride. Here I’m really, just going to focus on some pretty, basic, yet important, after ride care.Cosmetic mud, dust and dirt on the frame doesn’t make me any slower, so I’m pretty, bad about cleaning the full bike. However, there’s a good reason to do it: frame inspection. It’s a good idea to check over your frame regularly to look for any cracks, or large rock chips, or anything that could cause problems down the line. Spray the bike down with a mild cleaner that is not a degreaser (obviously we sell a range of products for you) then spray a rag and wipe the frame and wheels down with that.Don’t clean your disc rotors unless you get solvent or oil or something else on them; we could talk at length about that, should you be interested— drop by the shop and we’ll talk. DON’T HOSE YOUR EFFING BIKE OFF💦. If it’s really muddy you can, but use light pressure and go top down rather than from the side. None of the seals in your bearing are designed for that sort of thing and using the jet setting on your hose will push water past your seals and start to ruin your bearings. So don’t do it. Or do, and we’ll be happy to fix it for you should you have disposable income you want to burn💸🔥. So that’s it. As I mentioned, there’s a lot of other advice out there, some of which is probably at odds with some of the things I’m saying as far as hosing the bike or degreasing the chain and cassette on the bike. This is my personal experience over the last 20 years working in bike shops and riding mountain bikes for the last 25 years. Have a different opinion? Cool, drop by the shop and I’d love to talk about it.Mike D#GearMonkeyBikeRepair #gmbrraceteam #pearlandcyclingclub #pjscoffee#southwestcyclingclub#justiceleague9#majortaylorhoustoncyclingclub #pearlandtx #pearlandmtbtrail #pearlandcoffee #bicyclepearland #kiafortbendcyclingclub #surganlandtrails #pearlandmtnbiketrails #houstonmtb #mtb #houstonmtbtrails #mtblife #memorialparktrails #memorialparktx #mucoffmtb #katymtb #ghorba ...

Mountain bike advice fireside with Mike D. @viciouscyclestx Clean and lube your chainSo there’s already a whole slew of advice, tips, and tricks of what to do with your bikes post ride. Here I’m really, just going to focus on some pretty, basic, yet important, after ride care. Clean and lube your chain. Honestly if you keep your equipment fairly, clean, you can often skip the cleaning part and just lube the chain and wipe all the excess lube off, with an occasional cleaning. However, if you’ve got a bunch of mud or built-up oil on your drivetrain, I’d recommend pulling your chain and cassette to clean them off the bike rather than risk getting any degreaser or solvent in your freehub body bearings. Unless you want an excuse to come see us. 😎 Then feel free. Feel free to use kerosene if you’d like (DON'T DO THAT PLEASE) 🔥🔥. One thing I’ll do is floss a rag in between the cassette cogs to mostly clean everything without having to go nuts. We also sell a product called Gear Floss that works really, well for that sort of thing.Wipe off your derailleur pulleys as well to help keep the drivetrain clean. Avoid solvents on the pulleys since it’ll flush all the grease out of them, and your bike will sound like there’s a family of mice living in it.Mike D#GearMonkeyBikeRepair #gmbrraceteam #pearlandcyclingclub #pjscoffee #southwestcyclingclub #justiceleague9 #majortaylorhoustoncyclingclub #pearlandtx #pearlandmtbtrail #pearlandcoffee #bicyclepearland #kiafortbendcyclingclub #surganlandtrails #pearlandmtnbiketrails #houstonmtb #mtb #houstonmtbtrails #mtblife #memorialparktrails #memorialparktx #mucoffmtb #katymtb #ghorba ...
