Clean It? No...

The Renegade name covers a series of pretty decent disc-road frames with varying component levels at different price points. What year and specific model is yours?

Did you purchase it at a Jamis dealer? They'll be able to guide your maintenance routine.

Every three weeks or 300 miles, give the chain a light oiling and wipe. Once the indexed shifting becomes slightly mis-aligned, you'll experience a lack of crispness with a bit of noise. So, you'll need to learn how to adjust shift cables. It's pretty easy.

After a season, you'll need to look at your disc pads, but not before. If you ding a disc rotor, you might have to re-true it. This isn't very likely, though.

Ride it. If it gets covered in road schmutz, wipe it down.

Pretty simple, really...
