    Keep the chain lubed and change it when needed. For fixed gear check the lockring regularly. Keep your chain tension correct so nobody calls you a noob/ you don't die when the chain drops off the chainring and wraps around the cog. Every so often check the components for tightness. Thats pretty much all of it for basic maintenance.

    Hi, Can anyone please post a picture of the lockring on a fixed bike? I still don't know what this part is.

    sorry I'm new to this stuff.
