I bike commute to work 12 miles each way, almost every workday.

I clean and tweak the bike on weekends; chain comes off and gets a lighter fluid bath, then a good scrub with soap and water, then rinse and dry; wheels get checked for true and spokes tweaked as needed; while the wheels are off I will take a flat file to the brake pads and re-surface them.

Takes an hour or so of weekend time and the bike stays in top shape for the next week's rides. 

When touring, all that would be done as time and cleaning supplies allowed.

A clean bike is a happy bike!


Just sent you another PM.
Not sure why the 1st one didn't get through.
