Why not just look up how to service brakes and how to clean a drive train? Both have been answered before.

comment How to calculate the capacity of a rear derailleur
Excellent answer. Exactly what I was looking for. I suppose it would be wishful thinking to find similar information for defunct manufacturers (e.g. exage, ofmega) anywhere. It should be within the same ballpark though. Thank you.

comment Theft deterrents (in addition to locking up a bike)
