My wife and I just purchased 2 Giant Suede bikes. Wonderful machines.
I came here to learn the proper maintenance and adjustments of the bikes.
The other day was our first time ever buying a bike at a bike shop. We went to D&D bikes in Brighton, Mi. and Sean taught us a lot just by helping us choose the RIGHT bikes for our needs.
I hope to learn, and pass on that learning in these forums. Thanks for being here.
Welcome to Bike Forums. The Suede is a nice looking bike. It's great when you can get good service from your local bike shop.
The late great Sheldon Brown has a lot of good philosophy in his writings http://www.sheldonbrown.com/articles.html but Park Tool will give you very precise maintenance instructions http://www.parktool.com/repair/
