Why do I need to service my bicycle? Your Complete Guide

Updated: Mar 20

After a few months of riding around or storage, bikes tend to start making weird noises and feel a little different.


This is your bike crying for help!

If left unattended, these weird noises could be the end for your bike.

Here's our take, as experienced mechanics, on why a bicycle service is more than just a 'nice-to-have.'


Safety First, Always


Many of our clients roll into shop unknowingly having worn-out parts like brake pads, chains, and cables, often unaware that they're compromising their safety. Worn parts can leave you stranded, or worse, lead to an accident. At Supatan Bikes Co., we prevent these scenarios, ensuring you can focus solely on the joy of riding.


Check out these worn out pads on a customer's bike:

Here's another pad where a client had no idea it was worn out:

Above, you can see a silver line on the actual brake pads. This is metal. It is what holds the pads together. Once all the pads are used, past the wear warning, it will reach this point causing metal on metal rub with your rim. This is NOT good. What could have been a $15 pad replacement 6 months ago, has now turned into a $90 wheel replacement. Scenarios like this is common with bikes that have not been serviced for prolonged periods of time. What could be a simple service if approached early, can easily turn into a costly mistake.


What to Expect in a Service
