I have no idea about any of this, when I was younger and had a bike, I rode it a LOT, but if there was a problem, flat tire or if the chain came off or whatever, I just parked it in the garage and my dad fixed it! Not entirely my fault, I was a child, lol!
It's probably a silly question, but is there a recommended amount of time or miles that things need to be done to my bike? I have only put about 30-40 miles on my bike and I noticed that it seemed to be getting harder to pedal....finally glanced at my tires and saw that they looked a bit mushy.
When I first got my bike, I aired the tires up to about 55 psi and they were down at about 20 psi (both the front and back were about the same). Is it normal to lose pressure in that few of miles, or is it because its not a high end bike, or is it because of my weight, or a combination of all that?
Should I be checking the air every time I go out or get home? What about greasing the chain? And my seat is so squeaky...but I figure it is protesting my butt when I hit bumps, lol.

Man sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
The result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.
