This is a short and very basic list of bicycle maintenance
Check the inflation of tires before starting to ride, also check your tire inflation while riding.
Beware of rust, especially red rust. If the rust color is red and it's on the frame you can use sand paper and/or paint to remove it. 
Oil your cables with WD40
Clean and oil bicycle chain
Check for any rattles and noises. 
If the bike stood for a while check that all bolts and are tightened.

Mountain Bikes Vs Road Bikes.Mountain bikes have become very sought after and furthermore are usually readily available. A majority of these bicycles will often be a lot more comfy in comparison to road bikes due to the fact that you ride with a considerably more erect posture. They are simply devised for going off the beaten street paths and into places like the rugged slopes as well as mountain tops. If one thinks about it, this is exactly how their name was derived. Fortunately they are usually larger than road bicycles, due to the fact mountain bicycles have to withstand the excessive abuse relating to traveling on difficult, bumpy paths. A lot of them include additional features for example shock absorbers, wide tires, in addition to straight handlebars. You will find there's a suspension system that produces a comfortable drive, along with the heavy, wide tires are generally more unlikely to slip in comparison to the slimmer wheels of the road bicycle. Specialized knobby tires intended for outstanding grip and also a complete suspension are crucial aspects of the design related to mountain bikes. The actual bikes will be meant for difficult and also tough landscapes. The bicycles are engineered to fulfill their unique intent as long lasting off road sports gear. The specific bicycle created for downhill biking is actually extremely well put together and will have the ability to endure high-speed driving on pathways customized courses. These kinds of styles of bikes have got to be continuously transforming as new technologies and material come into play. <br /><br />Road bikes are produced with a particular style with regards to speedy, lengthy traveling times. The particular frame within the bike is probably the most important element. A very important characteristic in terms of a road bike tend to be how heavy it is in addition to stiffness which decides where the actual energy from your pedal strokes is to be sent. Basically these two elements have a direct impact on how much power is being delivered to the bike chain and therefore the actual wheels. Due to this quality, racing bicycles must sacrifice ease and comfort to get top acceleration. Drop or declining handle bars tend to be positioned beneath the seat level to be able to position the operator in a much more streamlined and sleek posture. The exact driving positioning is actually trying to combat the wind resistant by having he rider be curled on the dropped handle bars. Both sets of tires are generally in close proximity to guarantee the bicycle presents quick and easy handling. In summary, road bicycles are perfect for a lot of types of riding however they tend to be dangerous on rocks as well as other non paved surfaces.

29" Genesis Onex manual

Manuals are generic, very seldom apply to just one model, and mostly just have safety and very basic info. The Onex is a very basic bike - just a rear derailleur and V brakes. Maintenance is the same as for any similarly equipped bike.

I have a Schwinn cruiser six and would like to take it apart for cleaning and maintenance and then put it back together. Is there a manual available for this? Thanks!

lots of bike repair manuals at your local library. That is how I got started 30 years ago. Bicycle parts haven't changed much over the last 100 years, the concepts are still the same, so just about any bicycle repair manual will give you all the basics.

Park Tool manual is good, Bicycling Magazine has one, Leonard Zinn has a couple good ones. Barnett's manual is the bees knees of bicycle repair, used by professionals worldwide.

Can you please provide me a list of all major bike types?

I have listed the most famous bike types: BMX Bicycle

Bicycle Moto Cross (BMX) bicycles are designed for rough off road riding and are typically single speed. People also use them for stunt riding, and you may see some fitted with stunt pegs.

Mountain Bike (MTB)

A mountain bike is designed for trail riding and downhill riding. It can also be ridden on the road. They come in many shapes and forms. Some have no suspension, whilst others have front and rear suspension. A mountain bike without rear suspension is usually called a hard tail bike.

Most MTBs use 26 inch wheels which is the standard. This size wheel is fairly strong, especially when coupled with the large off road tyres that are fitted to MTBs.

An MTB is suited for off road riding and will handle rough terrain quite easy. It is very stable on rough terrain, but is a lot slower to ride on the road when compared to a road bike. It is also suitably geared for climbing hills.

Hybrid Bicycle

Another style of bike that has a similar riding position to a mountain bike, but better road speed is a Hybrid bicycle. Hybrids are a cross between a mountain bike and a road bike. They have an upright comfortable position, road tyres, and are usually a lot lighter than a mountain bike.

Hybrid bicycles are typically used for commuting.

Touring Bicycle

A touring bicycle is designed for loaded cycle touring and has the capability to be fitted with mudguards, racks, panniers and extra water cages. They are typically fitted with wider road type tyres that are suitable for gravel riding also.

They usually come with a stronger frame and longer chainstays so that the back of your feet don't hit the rear panniers. They are usually fitted with a relaxed drop bar style handlebar. The geometry of the frame is also different and allows for much more easier steering and handling when loaded.

Expedition Bicycle

As above for touring, but usually fitted with Trekking bars and MTB gear and is designed for extreme off road conditions.

Randonneur or 'All Rounder'

A rare beast in Australia where we like to specialise. 'Randonneur' is a French term, coined to describe a bike that can do a bit of everything - you can ride with the pack or take a doddle with the kids, you can ride light or carry a load, you'd use it to visit Gran on Sunday then pick up some groceries on the way home. They are the 'family station wagon' of cycling. However, like any Jack of All Trades, they do everything well but the specialists do it better. They can carry a load but not like a heavy tourer. They are fast but heavier than a racer and with more comfortable geometry. They have wider wheels and tyres to ride on rough roads but wont handle true off road work.

Typically, they look like any other racing or flat bar road bike ... until you look at the details. Most randonneurs start life as a touring bike or hybrid, and are then modified by the owner over time to reflect how they are used.

How sohuld I keep my bikes clean?

Bike maintenance: how to clean your bike. When it come to how to take care of your bike - keeping it clean is the number one most important tip. If you ride your bike regulary, inevitably it is going to get dirty. Dirt,sand and mud will cause parts and elements to wear out prematurely. For example, bicycle break pads should be replaced regulary, as they rub against the wheel and sustain wear.However,any excess dirt caught between the wheel rim and the brake pad will result in prematurely worn pads,rim damage,and compromised brake function. Make it a point to wash your bike after long rides,or as frequently as you are able . Wash the bicycle with worm soapy water,rags and brushes that will enable you to scrub the dirt,and scum from the front and rear derailers,cabels,wheel rims and brakes, chain and sprockets.Specialized chain scrubbing tools are sold by many bicycle retailers. Most cyclists recommend using green or all natural soaps, particulary if you plan to wash your bike outdoors. When washing, avoid getting water into elements such as gear shift levers,wheel bearings or crank bearings.
