Clean yer bike!

Here's a page detailing how to clean your bike. With the right tools and the right cleaning agents, it's a 10 minute job - 15 or 20 if you're a klutz like me!

Oh, and do pay attention to the warning about limiting the use of degreasers to no more than 2 minutes. They really do attack anodizing and paint.

Of course, if you're a lazy slob like me, you use a pressure washer at the local car wash, taking care not to direct the full spray directly into any bearings. So you clean mainly from the top, not the sides.

A tip of the helmet to Chuck Davis, owner of Oklahoma Velosport, who posted this link on some local elists!
