Full Chassis Service

This is one of my favorites. Take an old track bike that may or may not have turned a wheel in years, strip it down, freshen EVERYTHING chassis-related and reassemble. My bikes get this every other year.


They only slow you down. Brake fluid should be changed at least yearly on a race bike and every 2 years on a street bike. Brake fluid is hydroscopic, meaning it absorbs water. It also takes quite a beating from heat. Flushing the fluid is essential in maintaining braking performance. Even if you are good about changing the fluid, I have found the pistons and seals need to come out every once in a while for cleaning. Buildup behind the seals and rings that form on the pistons can lead to dragging brakes and/or poor lever feel.
