As one of the core components of the bicycle, the answer to whether the wheelset needs regular inspection and maintenance is obvious: If you want it to maintain a better condition and have a longer life, then it must be maintained regularly. First, through careful inspection, understand the usage or remaining life of the wheelset. If it is damaged or unusable, it can be replaced further, so that the wheelset can be kept in the best condition at any time, and you can ride with peace of mind.
When it comes to maintenance, each of us will have a strange flower around us. Experienced riders are not excluded!
In fact, wrong maintenance methods hurt the bike more than no maintenance!
Don't feel guilty! It's not that you are not good at it, but your maintenance method is not good!
First of all, pay attention to your brake feel in daily use, especially after the oil change, if the brake is significantly softer and the stroke becomes longer, it may be that the air in the caliper piston has not been removed. If this is the case, If it is relatively mild, it will generally return to normal after a period of use. If this is the case for a long time, you must consider re-exhausting. If your residence has a vacuum lubricator with hydraulic brakes, it is recommended to replace it for better exhaust. Empty the air in the caliper.
