Blue’s Bike Company in Joplin held a free clinic tonight. Mechanics demonstrated how to change a flat tire and stay on top of routine maintenance to make sure everything keeps running smoothly. They added that many customers don’t know even the most basic checklist to stay on two wheels.
“Maintaining your own bike is important because like anything else, if you keep it up to spec and make sure everything’s aligned properly and working right, it’s going to work longer,” says Paris Skaggs with Blue’s Bike Company.
Workers add that they were pleased with the turnout for tonight’s clinic and will consider holding more in the future.
