Winterise bike

Postby Z350 » Mon May 12, 2014 9:43 pm

So the rain has started here in perth and the winter bike has been pulled out.
I managed to pick up a second hand bike off gumtree that has now become my winter bike.
I wipe it down and keep it lubed up I have also silicon taped up the seat post and frame to stop water getting into the frame.
Anyone got any other tips or tricks on keeping their bike maintained and clean over winter.

If you've got a $10 head, get a $10 helmet
