Please note that the above table is just an example on different kinds of lubricants that can be used and a frequency of using them.
Please never use any spray degreasers for lubrication. Always contact your bike dealer for the best advice on what type of lubricant to use. If you feel uncomfortable with doing the routine maintenance by yourself, please use a qualified bicycle mechanic.
