Clean it.

File all sharp edges on pegs which has become a habit for me every few weeks, pop the seals on the bearings to re-grease them which is every few months, grease up my chain every few months, fully relube/re-grease my chain once a year, pump up my tire every 1-2 months, Sharpie any scratches all the time.

This might be the only legit thread you've ever made, but you're still a troll.

-re-grease my bearings
-re-lube driver, I do this almost every time I have my wheel off & do it a very special way I've found out that works great for Primo Mix/Cult Match cassettes.
-Clean & re-lube chain
-tighten things that may be loose
-true wheels/tighten up spokes
-CLEAN IT! It's amazing how much better you feel riding a nice, clean bike

I don't do shit for maintenance besides fixing flats and pumping my tires

I just regreased my cranks for the first time ever like 2 months ago


Honestly? Who gives a shit. Its the fucking internet. I hate all of you equally.

Clean everything, true wheels, adjust brakes and lube cables when I have em on, air tires when they need it (usually every few weeks) snug bolts, lube threads any time I take anything off, INSPECT IT WEEKLY WHEN I RIDE IT.
