I'm pretty knew to maintaining my own bikes so I thought I ask what to redo or tune up when getting a used bike (think sitting around for a while). I searched a couple times but found not much direct advice. It seems people already know what to do.
Anyway, I'm making a list, so far:
degrease and regrease chain.
clean and grease gears and shifting mechanisms.
redo brake and shift lines
get new bar tape
anything else? And does anyone have any good site that elaborate on the afore mentioned tasks. I'm no fool around bikes but I haven't really worked on them ever either other than tire changes, just rode them. Thanks for any advice.
