newbie bike maintenance.....
I am new this year to mountain biking coming from a few years of Road. I have a few probably low-level questions that I would like some advice from the veterans here.
I have ridden mostly single-track trails before work the past month and am wondering:
1. my bike got dirty, obviously, how sort of tools do I need to properly clean it? How often should I do so?
2. What types of tools, cartidges, etc, should I carry in the bag under my seat? Typically I'm not that far from my car but how does Road maintenance vary from mtb? Are mtb flats more or less common than road?
Thanks for any advice (more entry level question coming over the summer).
