We set up every new VanMoof bike to make sure it's ready-to-ride, but it's normal for some parts to work a little loose after a while. To make sure you enjoy many years of smooth riding, we recommend getting your new VanMoof (or any new bike) checked by a professional after three months, or 1000km of riding.

Our Bike Doctors (or any local bike shop) will be happy to help. Here's what they'll do:
- Tighten and lube the chain
- Adjust the brakes
- Align the wheels
- Check the gearing
- Retighten all bolts
- Lube the brake and shift cables
- Check the tire pressure

After your first check-up, we recommend proactive maintenance every 6–9 months to keep everything running smoothly.
