Cleaning the crankset

If you remove the chainrings to clean your crankset and now the front derailleur doesn’t shift right, you may have installed a chainring backwards. Remove the rings and put them on correctly. Usually, the crankarm bolts fit into indentations on the chainrings. Sight from above, too, to make sure there’s even spacing between the rings. (Or, better yet take your bike to Bikers Choice in Mt. Juliet or Ride 615 in Hermitage, let the professionals tune up your bike!)
