What needs to be done to my bike before I put it up for the winter? Do i just clean it up, put some **** on the chain, and call it a day?

Also, I just ordered an e-13 SRS chainguide, are they pretty easy to install/setup? I have a Raceface Evlove DH x-type BB so it will take the place of one of the spacers on that. I do not have chain guide mounts, it will have to go on like an e-type derailleur.

Do whatever you feel like. Some people really get into bike maintenance, others don't bother too much. It wouldn't be a bad idea to break everything down, clean it really well and lube it up. I am planning to change the oil and seals in my fork, rebuild my hubs, and have my rear shock rebuilt. I'll probably replace the shock pivots while I'm at it, and press on a new headset since my old one has about had it. I pay for my own gear, so I try to take care of it and make it last a while.
