Yes! I plan to use this chance to start to connect with LBS around my place. Im kinda confused, if the chain is visually that bad, should i just tell them to change it right away so I dont need to clean it?The chain looks quite bad, and I view the chain as a canary in the coal mine. It seems the previous owner didn’t put any effort into maintaining their bike, so I agree with the others: give your new bike a clean and send it off to a shop. You might need a new chain, for sure your drivetrain will need a tune-up, you might need new inner cables, new brake pads, etc.
And be nice to that shop: buy a new helmet and/or new pedals.
And does tune-up for drivetrain means basic maintenance? Thanks again!
