I learned of a new cleaning tip.
I keep my bikes clean. Spotless. Particularly the road bikes. And each week I wash the commuter, clean and lube the chain, tightened all of the nuts, bolts and screws, adjust the cables and inflate the tires. This is a weekend ritual. It only takes an hour and I know I will have a problem free week of riding.
I learned liquid pledge, you know, that stuff you use on your furniture, also works wonders on the bike. It cleans, removes grease and polishes at the same time without leaving a wax residue. I use it on the frame and all the components as well. They glisten and shine like new.
I’ve heard of that one before but never tried it… I’ll have to give it a go. Thanks man.
that’s really interesting – I’ll give that a go! I definitely need to clean my bike more often
It rained here yesterday on the way to the office. I noticed the watered beaded on the frame and all the components. But what I like best is the quiet sheen that blankets the entire bike.
Is this ok for carbon bikes as well?
