Oooooooooo Lemon Pledge is my new best friend!

Well, besides my bikes. My skinny tire bike is not only spotless but no fingerprints as well. And lemony fresh. Looks practically new!!

Isn't it like a car - once you drive it off the lot, it's used? *shrugs*

Oh crap. I gotta clean the tires.

DON'T inhale it.. It's a 'happy' aerosal - that usually leads to a very bad ending.

I thought that was furniture that's like that. Anyway, it's really cool to see you so gleeful over your Moots (who wouldn't be, really???). Reminds me of when I got my new Bianchi- I'd go out of my way to walk by it and just look. I don't think I did the Lemon Pledge thing though (guess I'm a MTB guy at heart...)

Now I'm glad you discovered the joys of the Lemon Pledge, but there's a limit, and that limit is cleaning tires.

My painted bikes usually get Zaino. But for the ti it's supposed to be Lemon Pledge. Oily fingerprints really show on an unpainted frame. That is what was driving me nuts. How do you think I found out Jon was fondling my top tube??

I'm just going to scrub them with warm water like I do to the MTBs. Nothing unusual.

Somehow, from following the threads on both your new toys, this doesn't seem so strange! Congrats you two on your new rides

If all goes according to plan, my next bike build will likely sport white tires. I think I will live to regret such a decision.

Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm

Good night all you Foosters

It was hard getting those grungy hand oils from off my frame. That is why I resorted to (deep commercial voice) LEMON PLEDGE!! (echo echo echo)

Just stop it. Better yet, let me stroke your bike all over. It's the only way to cure your OCDP tendencies.
