Hello

here in the midwest, it is time for the leaves to fall and warm weather to leave. In leu of the climate shift, I will be using an old bike on a trainer for indoor cycling sessions.

That means I will be not be using the CAAD10 w DA9000 inside.

Do I need to do anything special to the bike before I keep it on my wall mount for the winter? Any special lube or cleaner or anything?

or can I just hang it up and let it be

Thanks
zuck

A good cleaning and a re-lube I would think, then the same when you break her out in the spring.

That would do the job. I put the chain in the small ring in front and back as well so there's minimal tension on the cables.
