So a while ago there was a thread where a guy said that he checks his pivots, spokes, and rotor bolts (!!) for proper tightness before every ride. I was amazed and responded that I'm lucky if I check my tires and lube my chain once a month. Someone else was horrified that I don't do more. So...how much maintenance do you perform on your bikes? I'm not talking racing, just normal maintenance? I was serious when I said that I'm lucky if I check tire pressure and lube the chain once a month. My philosophy is to do it right the first time and you won't have a problem and need to re-torque all of you bolts every ride. Rotor bolts??? Come on. I've been riding disk brakes since Mountain Cycles first had them and I've never had a rotor bolt come loose. Sure, I know I need to do more (my Boxxer spewed oil all summer and I never changed the seals), but even being 200 lbs, I rarely break anything or have mechanical problems. I rarely even flat. It seems to me that the people that are constantly doing maintenance are the ones that always have problems. I ride with a guy that stops mid-ride, every ride to adjust his handlebars. WTF? Just set it once and be done already. I think people tend to over-troque bolts when then check them, which results in an endless bolt-ckecking cycle.
