How often should I have my wheels serviced?

We always recommend that your wheels are serviced after your first spirited ride to check spoke tensions and axle adjustment. It is completely normal for spokes to loosen in the ‘bed in’ period. After your initial service we recommend wheels are fully serviced every 2000 miles, including truing and re-tensioning, greasing bearings, cleaning of the drive system and necessary lubrication (depending on the drive system). This is also be a great time to check for any hub, rim, spoke, nipple and tyre damage. For heavy/ extreme mountain bike usage we recommend a visual inspection after every ride due to the nature of the riding. We also recommend servicing your hub internals (bearings and drive system) after use in heavy rain, deep water or muddy conditions to keep the wheels in great condition.
