I just bought a brand new fuji cross online. I've only bought used before. I've greased the chain and fitted the bike to me. Am I ready to ride or is there more to do?
Pump the tires up and hop on. Only precaution I'd suggest is to do a few circles in the playground or somewhere to be sure the brakes and derailleurs are adjusted right. I've never had any trouble with new bikes, but it's possible, and it's better to find out when you're pedaling easily with no cars (or witnesses) around than when you're screaming down Dead Cyclist HillTheDon said:
I would check to see that everything is built according to safety specs. That includes checking all the bolts to see that they are torqued to spec, and inflating the tires properly. Also check to see that the drivetrain is adjusted (tuned) properly.TheDon said:
You need chain lube not grease there.TheDon said:
