Bike Maintenance

So, after having a good bike for a while, you start to notice when things aren't quite right. This weekend I finally had a chance to do some needed maintenance work to a few components and it showed on my commute to work today.

The front deurailer needed some cleaning and some oil, which eliminated the sticky shifting it was experiencing. The tires got a bit of air, although without a pressure guage, it is a bit hard to tell if it was enough. The bike also got a great cleaning, which just makes it feel a bit newer again.

Now, if we can just get a few sunny days around here we can get some serious rides in soon!
