Bike and I coming out of biking hibernation, how to prepare bike?
My bike's been sitting around for a while since I had surgery and I'm ready to use it now but I was wondering if there's anything I should consider before using it [hard]. I wouldn't want to scrape some lubricated suspension part or something, as unlikely as it may be, especially if I'm taking it out in really cold temperatures.
People have hopped on it in the last 3 months here and there for a 30 second driveway ride but it's just been sitting indoors around 60F for a while. Overall, I really haven't even used it much in 10 months or so, all together probably 2 hours of riding maybe?
I was thinking maybe turn the bike upside down a few times to get the shocks lubricated inside or something, but there's not much else you an do aside from a tuneup, right? It's relatively new, only used it for a season but it's a couple years old, so I don't really want to go disassembling it unless I really really have to...
Thanks & Happy New Year
