Giant OCR 2

Postby blackman » Wed Jun 12, 2013 10:09 pm

Hi Everyone,

After 12 months of hitting the gym i have decided to start riding. I have jumped the gun and bought a second hand OCR 2. I am hoping I did the right thing.

What do I need to know?
I know nothing?
Not sure if this will sound silly but I have tried to google a manual and cant find anything

i have never owned a bike and have no idea how to maintain it.....................

Every bit of help and advise would be greatly apprecated.
:D

Welcome :)

I'd be starting off spending some quality time on a website like bicycle tutor and/or buying yourself a copy of zinns guide to road bike maintenance.

G'Day Blackman, welcome outside :D

A great bike to start out on, totally loved mine. I passed her down to the lad when I upgraded.
A pity the icelord page is no more, chock full of excellent PDFs. :(

Required reading for noobs would definitely be sheldonbrown.com. What the late, great man didn't know, it isn't much use asking me.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.
