Maintenance

Bough Bikes are made of French oak. This wood is able to withstand different weather conditions. The oak will keep its strength but the color will fade over time. Bough bikes are finished with protective oil. If you want to keep the original color you should treat the bike regularly with this oil. You will receive a bottle of oil upon delivery of the bicycle.

The metal parts of the frame are made of stainless steel. These require very little maintenance.

The Bough bike is assembled with additional high-grade bicycle components. The maintenance of these is comparable of those of a regular bicycle. Bough bikes can only guarantee the quality of its bicycles when there are well maintained. That is why we ask you to take your bike in for maintenance at between four and eight weeks after purchase
