A basic safety check should be carried out on your bicycle once every 7-14 days, or before any long ride is undertaken. This health check takes into account the major moving parts in an 'M' shape, starting from the front wheel and moving backwards. When tightening any bolts, please refer to the correct torque setting - it will either be highlighted on the component, or in your owner's manual/handbook. We highly recommend using a torque wrench when adjusting any bolts.
Once you've performed the check a few times, you should be able to run over a full bike within 5 minutes and will start to become second nature before taking your bike out for a spin. If you find a problem during your checks, contact your nearest retailer to get booked in for a bike service or repair.
Many retailers will offer this service for free, so if you are unsure about any of the safety check steps, find your nearest Giant retailer and get in touch to arrange your safety check.
