Tuning up bike after it has been in the garage for 2 years!
Well, I had knee surgery about 3 months ago and to keep the knee in good shape I am going to start riding my bike some more as there are a lot of places to ride around me. This is actually my brother's bike but he has since moved to Chicago and has no where to store it and said I can have it. It is a Trek 6700.
It needs a tune up though from sitting around so long. There is a few bike shops around me, but I would rather tune it up myself and save some money. I am pretty good with tools and mechanical parts so I think I'll be fine. Both of the tires are flat. I am going to pump them up but what is a good PSI for myself(5,9 155 lbs)? Next, what kind of things should I do or look for? I am going to go to a bike shop to get one of those computer things for the bike that tell mileage and time, anything else I should get while I am there? Is it probably just easier and more cost effective to bring it to the shop and let them fix it? Basically looking for a bike tune up guide.
