    Some tips:
    Remove pedals, grease threads
    remove seatposts, lightly grease inside of seat tube
    adjust brakes
    reset shifting
    true wheels
    ENJOY
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    So Sergram,

    Are you still hauling this bike on the hitch rack as photo'd?? If so, has that created any problems. I have a similar hitch rack and have been waondering how to haul a tandem should we get one.

    With a hitch rack note where the exhaust pipe of your vehicle is in relation to your tire. I learned long ago that it is possible to fry or age a tire sidewall rapidly on a long drive.

    Hopefully by now he has ditched the OEM whitewalls and is busy frying the sidewalls of a Schwalbe Big Apple 2.0
