All the spare parts you could need for your bike
You can significantly increase the life of your bike by maintaining and replacing certain bike parts. But what should you keep in mind when buying bicycle spare parts and what tools can be good to have at home? In this guide, we go through what you should know when buying spare parts and accessories for your bike.
Three things to consider when buying spare parts for your bike
Check the dimensions and fit
Before you buy a new part for your bike, it is important that you check the dimensions and fit of the old part so that you buy a suitable product. However, it does not necessarily have to be from the same brand as the old part.
If you are unsure which product to choose, you can always visit your nearest Biltema store, and we will help you find bicycle spare parts suitable for your bike. You can also contact our Customer Service department if you have questions or concerns.
- Maintain your bike
Some parts of the bike wear out faster than others, but by maintaining the bike you can avoid getting to the point where you actually have to replace the part. This way you do not have to return the bike for repair and save both time and money.

Inner tube repair kit
When the bike's inner tube gets punctured, you can be kind to both the environment and your wallet by repairing them instead of replacing them. To be able to repair tyres you will need repair patches, a glue solution and sandpaper.
