I ride in the rain often enough so that cleaning the bike is kind of futile .
My bike was a build project, lovingly specified and built by this very good LBS. They basically provide free lifetime service on the original bike. They know their customers also love bikes and suffer from N+1 .
I had requested new set of compact handlebars to reduce the drop. Being the perfectionist they are they want to check my bike fit to see if the handlebar is consistent with my fit requirements before I will be allowed to change anything .
So I spent two hours cleaning the bike. I feel like I own a Ferrari and Enzo will be watching to see if I'm taking care of one of his children !
Am I the only one with this situation?
