- Cleaning any dirt, oil and old grease off the bicycle.
- The gears and derailleurs are checked for damage and alignment.
- The drivechain is checked for stretching or kinking.
- Brakes are inspected for wear and grip.

Is a bike tune up worth it?
A yearly tune–up is definitely a good idea, but I also agree with the guys above. Get a manual and teach yourself. You’ll learn how to do minor adjustments every couple months or so to keep your ride running right instead of waiting a whole year and risking damaging something by riding a bike in need of adjustment.
