One silly problem I have is that I keep getting grease on my trousers (coming from the chain etc).
Sure enough using the mixture of cooking oil, old machinery oil and massage oil (perfumed with Vanilla, Mmm) on my chain and derailler was, thinking back at it, not such a great idea after all.
Anyway at the moment I wear a leg warmer thing (designer for winter sports) over my shoes and that protect my remaining trousers but its flashy pink fluorescent color is getting me some attention I could do without.
I am therefore thinking of perhaps cleaning my bike and using (I discovered this exists) some non-staining bicycle wax instead. can anybody advice me on 1) what to use for lubrication 2) how to clean it. Does it really not stain?
