The folks at Sun and Ski Sports have released a free, 11 page ebook in PDF format that walks through a lot of basic bicycle maintenance.
The five sections include:
- Bike maintenance checklist for maintenance you should do every ride, every month, every six months and yearly
- Where and how to use lubricant and grease
- How to keep your tires properly inflated
- A very important walk through involving your quick release
- And finally… the Cyclist’s Checklist
I highly recommend downloading this ebook and passing it to all your friends. It’s a great read for newbies and reminder for the rest of us.
