After a good few weeks of searching around and research I have finally bought my first ever "real" bike today from a really cool local bike shop. I originally tested a misceo 1.0 in the shop but one of the employees suggested I try a medium frame instead of the small they had in stock. It turns out the medium frame they had was a different model entirely of the bike, but after riding around the misceo 2.0 I decided I preferred the more athletic posture of the misceo 2.0 and from my *extremely* limited knowledge it seemed like it had some better components than the first model I looked at. Anyway I am happy with my bike purchase considering I was kind of a picky shopper on a very limited budget.
I didn't get a chance to ride it much more since I bought it because of course a thunder storm had to roll into town right as I was getting my new bike back home. Since I am basically a total bike newbie who knows nothing I was wondering if I could get some pointers on how to properly care for my brand new bike. With my old cheap-o bikes I basically would just lube up the chain every once and a while and keep the tired pumped up. This new bike has disk brakes which is something I've never had to deal with before, and I was wondering if they require any specific maintenance that I don't know of? I do know that I need to keep my bike clean and dry after rides so I will make sure to do that!
The LBS that I got my bike offers free tune ups for life when you buy a new bike from them, so I'm really happy about that. They told me to ride the bike for a month before bringing it in for the first tune up, and then twice a year after that.
Thanks for reading my post and answering any of my many questions. I'm mostly just really excited to finally have a new bike!
