I bought the CrossCheck three years ago from an awesome shop that gives life-time of free tune-ups if you buy the bike from them. It's an awesome deal. But it does make it a bit harder to force myself to learn the essential ways of bike mechanics. There seems to be little reason to fidget, poke, bleed and screw things up when a professional is a few miles away, willing to do it for free. I suppose I'll eventually get there. For now, though, I'll let the pros handle it.
