Hope you’re all keeping well during these ‘interesting’ times.
My winter bike is in need of some TLC and was looking to do it myself - I know, what could possibly go wrong!?
I wash it down after every ride (once a week in the wonderful wetness of Ireland) so I like to think that it was somewhat protected.
I was looking at doing a few things that are deemed “basic” however I have done very little maintenance on my bikes bar cleaning chains, replacing tubes / tyres, seats or bar tape. So I am planning on keeping it simple enough but that will help with maintaining the longevity as this bike will be my commuter when we are allowed to roam freely again.
The below I was planning on doing:
Clean and grease headset
Clean and lube freehub body
Replace brake pads (mechanical disc brakes)
Adjust / Index gears
Adjust brakes with new pads
Where as I appreciate none of you have the bike in your hands and cannot tell what else might need to be done, can I ask the more knowledgeable of you, is there anything else I should look at doing whilst I am at it?
The bike in question is a Focus Mares AX commuter and I will be leaning heavily on YouTube for videos so I am trying to avoid needlessly complicated jobs that may not be needed.
Thanks in advance!
