    Back into Commuting

    Well last summer I bought a stock Trekk 7100 Hybrid. Before winter I had to fly out...and now I am back. I am going to be commuting by bike again..but I need to do maintance. I need to lube it for sure..its a summer is a mixture of rain & sun..so what lube to get?

    Also I did some research and found that the SKS P45 fenders can fit. Now I just need a rack for the back tire and a waterproof bag, how do I tell what rack fits?

    Its a Trek 7100 with 700x35c tires.

    Any rack advertised to fit a 700cc tire will work for you. Not familiar with your bike, but if it has disc brakes you will need to take that into account.

    You don't just want to dump lube on a chain, you need to clean it first. Get a kit and cleaner to do this, then once it's done lube it LIGHTLY. Not sure what else you might be looking to lube, but whatever problem you're trying to address, chances are it also needs a cleaning more than anything else. Dumping lube on top of dirt doesn't help matters.
    You have the right to your own opinion. You don't have the right to your own facts.
