First of all, it can be said that a Milan has a lot less maintenance and wear and tear than a normal bike. The drive train is encapsulated against water and dirt and therefore has a very high life expectancy (around a factor of 8 higher than a normal bicycle). So you have to replace wearing parts much less often and you also have to clean parts of the drive much less often or not at all. Only re-oiling is important, because oil also evaporates.
What is annoying with a normal bike is that you often have to replace brake pads due to wear. The problem with today’s velomobiles is not that: drum brakes are installed that have an extremely long service life. Depending on the topography, these brake pads last between 30 and 100.000 km.
Flatfoot, what to do If a tire is defective, you can easily change the tire and tube on the Milan (and also on the other models from VelomobileWorld) without having to remove the respective wheel. This is because all three wheels are suspended on one side. To do this, you put the vehicle on its side.
In general, tire defects are very rare, as you mainly drive on the road and there is little risk to tires there.
VelomobileWorld is working on providing good instructions online for all further work. How do I replace my brake pads? How do I remove the rear wheel if I want to change the cassette? How do I remove the suspension struts if I want a different spring rate? These and similar questions are answered in short films.
A low-tec velomobile is perfect because it concentrates on the essentials and does not need a motor. The technology is very straightforward. Of course, you can also ask your dealer for help.
