Frequently Asked Questions

When getting your bike serviced, you need honest advice. At CFN, we pride ourselves on getting the best servicing for the lowest possible rate – without compromising on quality or workmanship. We have collated a few of our frequently asked questions to help you. Please send us a message, call on 40238239 or an email if you have any questions. 

The answer to this question is different to each individual rider. We recommend getting your bike serviced once every 3 months if you are riding it regularly. This ensures you stay ‘on top’ of the maintenance, so less parts break for you when you are on the road or trails. 

If you consistently ride in the rain or in harsh environments, we would recommend more frequent servicing. If you have any questions about servicing or require a quote, please bring your bike in for an honest assessment. Our bike servicing costs are extremely competitive and our bike mechanics have years of experience. 

In general, a high quality bike wash (such as Motorex Bike Cleaner) will help you remove all of the grit and grime on the frame. 

A spray based degreaser is excellent for the drive train including gears, derailleurs, shifters and cables. 

An alcohol based degreaser is excellent for the brakes, rotors and rims. 

We have a massive range of bike cleaning products in store. 

Chains should be lubricated with a silicon based lubricant. We sell chain lubes from Motorex and Tri-Flow. Water based lubricants such as WD-40 actually attract water, leading to rust and corrosion on your bike. 

With Newcastle being a coastal town, we recommend you store your bike inside or protected from the elements. The salt air can easily corrode parts of your bike including the spokes, nipples and stanchions on your fork. We have bicycle racks and storage options in stock. 

We recommend you clean your bike if it is dirty, you have ridden in the wet or in a harsh environment – such as salty air. By keeping your bike clean, you will minimise your expenditure on replacement parts and bike servicing costs. 

Yes, we offer insurance quotations for the small fee of $45. If you decide to go ahead with the repair or replacement, you will get the $45 fee taken off the total of the parts or repairs. 

We can source custom parts for your bicycle. We have access to a massive range of suppliers who offer generic to exotic bicycle parts. 

We stock a massive range of Shimano and Sram parts for drive trains. 

We service all makes and models of bikes

Custom Bike Builds Available

We pride ourselves on delivering the best possible bicycle to enhance your riding experience. We have built 100s of custom bicycles – Road Bikes, Mountain Bikes and everything in between. Whether you want us to source exotic parts for your next bicycle build or want us to put your new bike together with existing parts, no job is too big or small for our experienced bicycle mechanics.

Maintaining your bike in Newcastle

With Newcastle being a coastal town, keeping your bike out of the salty air can ensure the longevity of its lifetime.

Keeping your bike clean is one of the best things you can do to ensure all the components and accessories continue to work.

We recommend using a non-water based lubricant (NOT WD-40) on your gears and cables to ensure they run smoothly and effectively.

If you are in doubt, bring your bike into CFN (Located at 250 Brunker Road Adamstown) and we can make an honest assessment on what your bicycle needs. We are more than happy to run you through some general bicycle maintenance tips and tricks to ensure your bike is running as smoothly as possible.
