Reply To: Keeping my Bike Clean in Winter


I agree with Jeff and would stay away from the WD-40.  I like the idea of spraying it down with the cooking oil prior to a muddy ride too.  That is one I will throw in my bag of tricks.  As for cleaning, I would stay away from the hose, especially on the bits and spots that move.  I usually just get a rag and a bottle of Simple Green and go to town.
