Yup, I've waxed my bike frame before. It makes it easier to get the crud off.How often do you guys clean your bikes, chain, rims? I heard you could put car wax on the frame, anyone do this?
I clean my bike fairly regularly but it really depends on the conditions i have been riding in. If no mud and muck then i just lube it up and go. A little dirt doesn't hurt! Never use high pressure water as said above though. I have never waxed my frame b/c i dont think it helps that much but just my opinion.
This.Same here. Dust and light dirt should be ignored, unless you have nothing else meaningful to do with your life. I spend some time on the chain every 300-400 miles or so. When I do clean the bike, I have an old spray bottle with clear water in it (an old 409 bottle). I use that and regular 409 spray and a couple of rags to clean it. I've never used a hose or spent more than 5 minutes, or about 15 minutes per year, cleaning a bike.
maybe not faster, but will certainly last longer!A clean bike is faster. Right?
