A CLEAN BIKE, IS A HAPPY BIKE
I get asked a lot if I even ride my bikes because there that clean….. Answer is YES and probably more than the person that is asking….
A clean bike will not only look good, but it will also run better. If your bike isn’t cleaned properly all the muck and dust from your outing will build up in places you can’t see and cause you a lot of trouble and maybe even a long walk home someday…
If you clean your bike often enough, it really is a quick job and its like this if you came home from a wet muddy run would you put your clothes back on the the next time without washing them…..
Here is a short video from the MTB wizard (Yannick the Mechanic) on how to clean a bike properly.
