I bought a 97 Trek Y-22 and I want to do some maintenance on it. Since this is my first full suspension bike, I need a little advice on removing the parts, cleaning them and regressing them.
For the rear pivot, are there bearings in it? If so what type? Is there any special instruction I need? Is there a site I can go to and read up on it? Also, the front fork is a Rock Shox Judy XC, cheap, but for the type of riding I do, it's fine. How do I clean the fork? Is there any maintenance needed on it? How do I know if a rebuilding is necessary? and are parts available for it? The rear shock is a Fox Float R, same question, how do I know when maintenance is needed?
The bike came with Alivio shifters, derailleurs, crank and brakes. It also came with a steel front wheel/hub and a rear wheel with a Shimano Parallax hub and Alexrim rim but for $200 I still thought it was a good deal.
I have LX front and rear derailleurs (only about 50 miles on them) and an LX STI Shift/Brake Lever Set (same mileage) I will use along with a new FSA Gossamer triple crank. I also have a carbon stem and nice riser bars are also going on the bike.
Thanks for the help,
