I recently purchased a Specialized Hardrock sport disc 29er and I had a couple of routine maintenance questions if anyone would care to give me some advice/tips.
First, how often and what is the process I should use to degrease/grease my chain. Also do I need to take the chain completely off. If so how is that done if possible? What products are recommended?
Secondly, how do I know when my disc brakes are wearing down and in need of changing? Ive never had them before. I noticed from when I first purchased the bike, that my front brake lever is much easier to pull in then my back brake, is that normal?
