How do I inspect an SG Bike for serviceable condition?

Safety is of paramount importance to us. Therefore, it is important that you conduct a pre-ride inspection to ensure your bicycle is fit for riding using ABC.

A is for air*. Inspect tyres to ensure they are properly inflated and free of cuts by pressing your thumb against the tyre. A serviceable tyre will revert back to its original shape, an unserviceable tyre will not.

B is for brakes. Inspect brakes for looseness and binding by squeezing the brake lever and moving the bicycle forward and aft.

C is for chains. Inspect the chain mechanism for foreign objects and ensure the links are not broken through visual inspection.

It is also important that you check the frame for excessive cracks, wear, and pitting. Lift the bicycle up and shake the wheels laterally to check for wobbling or lateral free-play.

Lastly, inspect the cranks, handles and adjustable seat for security and cracks by rocking them laterally.

*Note: SG Bike Standard series bicycles use airless tyres.
