Maintenance - Drive Train

Hi All, I was hoping to find a community of bike lovers and enthusiasts and found bikeforums dot net today. I'd like to discuss bike maintenance. I thought I would start with the drive train.

Welcome. Are you intentionally in the folding bike sub-forum? Maybe you want to start with introductions and then post your comment in the bike mechanic sub-forum? Just a thought.

Thanks for the reply. I couldn't find a mechanic sub-forum. Would you be able to direct me to it? I should have explained that I ride folding bikes

It's the one called Bicycle Mechanics. Lots of knowledgeable bike mechanics and DIYers keep an eye on that sub forum just to help less experienced bike owners that have questions about their bikes. But like Fiat Bob said, just keep things cleaned and lubed and you shouldn't have any problems. Of course, that's sometimes easier said than done. And if you really want to stir things up, ask what the best lube is. Good luck
