How to improve the performance of the drivetrain
The drivetrain gets exposed to regular wear and tear, especially if you ride every day. Without proper maintenance, its components may suffer from damages. Below are some key tips you can follow to boost the efficiency and maintain the good condition of your drivetrain.
- Clean it properly - Dirt, mud and rust can heavily affect the overall performance of the drivetrain. As such, you should clean your bike regularly especially if you frequently ride in a muddy environment. Use the right type of cleaners to get rid of deep-seated dirt and grease.
- Don’t forget to lubricate the chain - The chain is one of the most important parts of your drivetrain. It’s crucial to lubricate it from time to time to decrease friction and to protect it from damage. Use a chain lubricant that gets the job done.
- Replace worn chain - If your chain wear reaches 0.50 to 0.75 percent, you must replace it immediately. You can shop chain affordable high-quality bike chain replacement here at Mr Cycling World.
- Examine the chain and derailleur - Make sure to adjust the position of the chain to prevent it from rubbing against the derailleur when you shift gears. If you hear a loud noise when you shift gears, then it’s most likely that the chain is too close to one of the clips of your derailleur.
- Check the crankset - Look for cracks or other deformities on the chainrings and crank arms. Determine if you need to replace any of the crankset components.
- Inspect the cassette - Just like the rest of the mechanical components of your ride, over time, the cassette suffers from wear and tear too. Generally, you should inspect the cassette once you've reached 1,000 miles. If the teeth have started to resemble shark fins then you know it's time to replace the cogs or the entire cassette.
