Different people will prefer varying procedures when tuning up their bike, but I recommend you tune up your bike once every 6 months at least. The important first step in a full bike tune-up is a thorough cleaning of the entire vehicle. Next, work on the headset and handlebars. It is important to clean and regrease the headset bearings — both the top and bottom ones. Clean everything else here; this goes for the handlebars, shifters, and brake levers. Worn-out bar tape will lose its grip, so make sure to replace that as well.

Thank you for the reply, but your suggestions sound more like for a bicycle than they are for a stationary exercise bike. For example, a stationary bike doesn't have any headset bearings, because there is no steering involved when using the bike :)
