I'm thinking that it might not be a bad idea to get some practice working on my bike this weekend, and what better practice to start with truing a wheel that is slightly out of round, and to clean and lube the chain.
I'm probably going to use simple green to clean the chain (I've been using it on cars for years), but what should I use to lubricate it? Thinking of just using a motorcycle chain lube, as I've had good luck with the stuff before.
I'd like to also pull the chain off the bike; that way, I can just let it sit in both solvent (simple green) and lubricant (chain lube), instead of running it through a chain scrubber; I grabbed a chain tool, and it looks like it just pops out one of the pins...or am I an idiot and missing something?
Any caveats for a new DIY bicycle mechanic?
