Surron bikes are one of the most popular types of bike in the UK, with a reputation for being sturdy, reliable, and easy to value. While it’s true that they’re incredibly popular with commuters and recreational cyclists alike, their popularity has meant they are susceptible to theft and damage if not looked after well.
However, if you take care of your bike properly it can last you well over 5 years, avoiding those expensive repairs and replacement of Surron parts!
Here’s what you should know about how to look after your Surron Bike.
- Keep up your servicing up to date
While it might seem obvious, keeping up with your servicing will really help to maintain your Surron bike in good condition for a longer period. This also reduces the risks of accidents occurring as your bike is less likely to break down mid-ride.
- Store it safely and securely
Another obvious one is that you are far more likely to protect a bike if you have a designated spot for it rather than just leaving it anywhere. If you do leave it hanging on the wall, make sure it’s locked up and secured, especially if you have children around.
- Keep your bike clean and well-maintained
This ensures that your Surron looks good and you can spot any damage to it before it’s too late. If you make sure to check your tires regularly, then you can stop punctures and keep them at a manageable level.
- Lube the chain whenever required
Another obvious one, but you should always lube a Surron up when the chain is fully exposed to the road. If you don’t lube the chain, then you’ll be more likely to have your chain break due to friction, and it will be much harder for you to get it fixed.
- Keep battery charged
Always make sure that your batteries are charged and performing optimally. Keeping your battery charged will save you a lot of hassle. Your Surron will be much more likely to start if you do this, and you’ll keep it in working order for longer.
- Upgrade for purpose
If your Surron is old or outdated, consider upgrading it to a newer model. Upgrading will make your life a lot easier. There are a variety of options out there, and they’re great as they have tougher frames, better gears, and superior braking systems.
