When to call a bike shop

If you’re unsure how to do something, bring your bike into a local bike mechanic. If you ride regularly, you should bring your Schwinn bicycle in at least once a year for a full professional tune up where complex components can be inspected and serviced properly. A bicycle in good working condition will help keep you safe on the road.

When should I call?

  • If your bicycle is making noise that is abnormal and unidentifiable
  • If there is persistent rubbing or sticking of components
  • If your derailleur isn't working properly
  • If your bicycle chain keeps slipping off the chainring
  • Once a year for a basic spring tune up
  • At least once a year to service your suspension

Be a courteous bike owner

  • Clean your bike off before bringing it in
  • Don’t leave all of your gear on your bicycle - remove saddlebags or other cargo items that may get in the mechanics way
  • Give the bike shop a few days to work on your bicycle, especially in the spring when shops are flooded with requests
