    Hello,

    I have a Giant 2001 OCR1 road bike. Stock parts.

    I am tired of paying $50 for adjustments...

    The bike has a triple, but you can never hit the lowest gear
    -needs adjusting. There is something going on inside the
    crank -bearing going bad? Also I have yet to degrease/grease
    the chain.... and I don't know what other preventive maint
    type things I should be doing.

    Can anyone recommend a DVD repair video for new road
    bicyles, as well as essential tools that I should have?

    I am thinking I need a crank puller, chain cleaner, etc...
    please give me your wisdom

    Thanks, Keith
