Step 9: Tune up and test ride

You can get the final tune-ups done at the local bike shop, or reading the reference material at the start of this 'ible.

One of the important things to do is a couple of laps of a safe track while you test the bike out.  When I first test rode my restored bike the axle had slipped in the frame and it was really slow after a lap or two!

Check and correct all parts of the bike before you start riding on the street or at speed. Some examples are the chain, the brakes, gear shift and wheel alignment.
