Rode in soaking rain yesterday. New Road bike w/ only 500 miles on it (Tarmac listed below). This rain is not a typical event for me, but may be more common as am riding more. I usually use a wax based lube (Pedros Ice Wax or White Lightning) on my bikes. This bike had been in shop couple times for some fitting/fine tuning. They have kindly used "Rock N Roll" lube (not sure which one): http://www.rocklube.com/chainlubes.html. This bike has not seen Ice Wax. Since I usually ride in dry conditions, I have a gallon container of Pedros Ice Wax, and have used this happily on my other bikes.
After this rainy ride I cleaned my
-frame, wheelset, drivetrain w/ damp (water) washcloth, then dry washcloth
-then on frame only used Bike Lust
My questions are:
1-What do I need to lubricate other than the chain after a rainy ride (rode about 30 miles in a steady rain)?
2-Do I need to take the bottom bracket apart and inspect? (Have FSA SLK Mega Exo): http://www.fullspeedahead.com/fly.as...xid=21&pid=693
3-Any recs on the chain lube? The Rock N Roll Lube seemed to hold up well in the wet conditions.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts,
