My full sus Giant Trance is going to the shop next week for a very thorough service and check up. Having some new bits fitted and my forks and shock are going in for a service too.
While I have just learnt a few extra tips in terms of bike DIY, I have decided to pay the extra to have it all looked over and to be in the best possible shape ready for my trip to the Alps next month.
Then the new me will take over!
I have been thumbing through some old MBUK issues today and making some notes of the sort of stuff I should be doing, when best and how to do it.
Hopefully throughout the year I will be able to document a few home performed tweaks and fixes as I learn.
I need to get my tools and lubes and greases in order and get a bike stand..
Thus far my maintenance has consisted of cleaning the bike and lubing the chain. It’s time to get a bit more serious about this mountain biking…
