As the winter sun starts to climb higher and the trails and roads dry out, it’s time to think about riding again. That probably means full service for bikes that have been neglected in the garage all winter. (Don’t you dare say you left them in the snow). Time to rip that thing apart and take a tooth brush to last year’s grit and grime. Or perhaps you’ve been perusing the Spring Bike Special and settled on a new bike. Either way, you’re going to want to build that bike up like its new so you’re ready to hurtle into the season. I saw the video clip below, courtesy of our friends over at IMBA, and thought, “If it were only that easy…”
If you need me, I’ll be in the garage taking decidedly more time on my own bikes than the 1:25 it takes to to get the Transition in this video rolling.
