Hey 👋 thanks for this video and you that is nice video good luck . 🤍
…missed a spoke…
Nice! This is exactly what I do in my basic maintenance service. My customers are so pleased with how their bikes perform afterwards.
Uuummmm, greasing seatpost? I don’t know if this is a good idea. I’ve done it once on my old bike – during the ride, the seatpost went all the way down. I’d avoid that.
Short and simple, just like myself!
11. make sure the exposed cam mechanisms on wheel & seat QR skewers have some lube on them, as they don’t lock their components with the right amount of force if they’re dry &/or dirty. Or even better, get some Shimano-style closed mechanism ones.
Don’t forget to tune up your pedal bearings
After 6 years.. no suggestion to REPLACE the tires?? Motorcycle tires are stamped with mfg date. Do rubber on bike tires never age and crack?
I had some really bad wheel alignment issues, checking spoke tension almost fixed it completely. Just hope that I didn’t put to much pressure on a single spoke.
Great list! I’d add check the tires for cuts/sidewall rot, especially if the bike hasn’t been used in a while like this one
Lube cables and housings? Shouldn’t they just be replaced?
IF YOU’RE WATCHING THIS AND HAVE A CARBON SEATPOST.. DO NOT GREASE IT!!..If You have a Carbon Frame and Seat Post.. try to use some Carbon Gripper Paste instead..
depending on the fit..if You have a Steel or Alloy frame and a Carbon Seat-Post and it’s a tight fit into the frame? you may not need it..(might still be better off with some grip paste just incase) but if the Carbon post is a very easy fit into the frame?.. definitely use some gripper paste too.
if you have Metal frame and post?.. definitely use some grease.. otherwise you may just end up totalling your frame.. or just get a stuck post. 🙂
Bonjour Hello , Nice résolution 😁 Thank you 👋☺
Just in time
The 10 Bike Commandments 🙂
What a ridiculous video.
I literally just did this a few weeks ago. I have a bike that I’ve had for about 12 years and I’ve ridden it maybe 12 times. Last time about 5 years ago. I cleaned it all up, lubed the chain. Had to change the grips because they had actually stated to degrade and since they were twist shifters. I changed to a lever shift. Now I ride about 3 times a week and thinking about upgrading.
ah the headset, always forget that one.
