    General JAMIS Hardtail Maintenance

    Hello MTBR members,

    I'm just getting started in Mountain biking and I bought two new ’09 Jamis Trail X2 hardtail bikes for my wife and I.
    It has the front suspension, disc breaks and specs below. I was wondering, can anyone recommend general maintenance on these bikes?
    The local store I bought it from included two seasonal tune ups (which I’m unsure if that includes re-building the front shocks).

    Is there general maintenance that should be performed after every ride? Once a month? Semi-annually?
    I want to keep them in tip top shape and I’ll spend the time after each outing to clean them up.
