Fall is in the air

Fall is in the air

Not sure what the weather is like in your neck of the woods but here in Northern Colorado the trees they are a changing. Combined with some strong afternoon thunderstorms and cool evenings it seems that fall is coming a bit early. Could we be in for an early winter? Since we know tandems and not meteorology I guess we will focus on the bikes.

Getting your tandem ready for winter  a quick checklist:

  1. Check tires
  2. Lube chain
  3. Check crank bolts and chain-ring bolts
  4. Re-lube your hubs
  5. Check play in headset
  6. Check brake pads
  7. Lube shift cables
  8. Dust off the cool weather riding gear
  9. Install fenders if you have them
  10. Lube pedals
  11. Mount tail light
  12. Add a small flashlight to your repair kit
  13. Get out and ride before it gets really freaking cold!
