Quick Tip: Releasing Mud When Washing Your Bike


XLADV

Not too fond of washing your bike with a pressure washer (seal issues), but getting mud off your bike without one can be a lot of work?

Try hooking up your garden hose to your home hot water heater. The hot water releases the mud from my bike quickly without the high pressure that isn't kind to bearings & seals.

If you know you'll be hitting mud, spray your bike with cooking oil spray (Pam or similar) before the ride.  Obviously, avoid the rotors/brakes and the exhaust header.  Especially valuable when on the Dalton in Alaska where the mud dries into ceramic-like coating due to the calcium carbonate used to hold down dust.

For sure Green. Good addition! Armor All, Silicone spray too. But, cooking spray is cheaper and who doesn't have some already? Butter flavor or just regular? ;)
