wales uk all road riding so no trails etc. As you say I will have a chat in my local shop.Maintenance depends on where you ride it. If you're out in the bush, and pick up a lot of dust, then a dry lube on your chain might be best. If your trails take you through water crossing, you might prefer a wet lube. It's best to check at your local shop for suggestions.
After a ride, you should wipe any crud and grime off your bike, paying attention the chain, hubs, fork sliders, and exposed cables.

I fixed the thread title, sorry about that. For some reason, I thought that the Defy 2 was a mountain bike. Anyway, that changes my advice just a bit. While you still need to keep your drivetrain clean, unless you're riding in a dust storm or rain, you probably will only need to wipe your chain down and clean/lube according to the lube manufacturer's guidelines. Road bikes are pretty low maintenance. A drop of quality oil at the pivot points of all moving parts and any exposed cable is all you should need between tune-ups. Wiping it down with a damp cloth after a ride won't hurt either.wales uk all road riding so no trails etc. As you say I will have a chat in my local shop.
