Winter prep and storage for heavily chromed bicycle
It's getting close to that time of year to put my Pinarello Montello into winter storage. In the past few years all I've done is wipe down everything with a WD-40 soaked rag and hung it in a relatively dry basement. My concern is the mild humidity normally found in a basement along with ozone exposure from the typical appliances in a utilitity/laundry room. Would the bike be better off hanging in the attached unheated garage? BTW, I am located in northern Indiana. Would Pledge furniture Polish be better protection than the WD-40? So far I have not had any issues with the chrome during winter storage but the Vittoria Rally's are getting that dark yellow aged look. They are 6 years old so I guess that's probably normal. What do the rest if our C&Vers do with their fair weather only bikes through the winter months?
I can't post without a pic...
