Tip 4. Clean your bike
Before storing the bike, thorough cleaning is essential. Remove mud, dirt, and any traces of salt or other harmful substances. A clean bike is less susceptible to corrosion and wear.
Wipe the frame of your Van Raam bike with a damp cloth. For dirty spots, you can use a mild cleaning agent. Clean the wheels with a damp brush with plastic bristles (no steel brush). The saddle, handlebars, and backrest can be cleaned with mild soap and water. Some Van Raam (older) bike models (such as the Chat rickshaw bike) have upholstery. The upholstery of the seat is removable and can be cleaned. You can wash it in the washing machine at a maximum of 40°C.
The user manual for your Van Raam bike also provides more information on cleaning and disinfecting your bike.
