I just picked up a 1991 Trek 1200 and I oiled the cables and chain and even put grease around the pivots for the cables and grease on the cables themselves, but there three things I've never done and may need doing since its 19yrs old.
Do I need to grease the pedals? I will be getting new pedals since these are Shimano clipless. I want some platforms. Wanna trade?
The steering head bearings. Is this something I can do with basic tools or do I wait until it needs it.
Same thing with the bottom bracket. Is there a write up on how to do this? I've looked at a very basic mechanic book at the library and it says I can knock the lock ring off with a drift and hammer. And on the non-drive side is left handed, right? Meaning, I turn clockwise to unscrew it.
Any help is greatly appreciated as I want the bike to be safe and last.
