Spring cleaning the bike

posted in: Cycling Gear | 0

Racking up big training miles on the bike really takes it’s toll on components, even more so if you don’t give it a regular good clean. I’ve found that I can double the life of the chain if the chainset and rear mech cogs are strip-cleaned after every wet ride. Not the most exciting of jobs but it’s funny how the bike always seems to go faster when it’s freshly cleaned and lubed! It’s probably all in the mind but I suppose if the mind feels good then the body feels good!
