    Ugh.. I'm about to pass out..

    I just finished cleaning my weekend roadie and my commuter for 3 solid hours this afternoon in my room with the door closed, AC on, DVD on tv. I wiped down the whole thing, cleaned every nook and cranny, cleaned every link on the chain with degreaser, water, and lots of alcohol. Unfortunately, I neglected to properly vent the room...

    I honestly haven't had the pleasure of smelling all that stuff in one room....

    Might have been interesting to see what would happen when lighting a match, gas stove, etc.

    Try going for a ride. If you survive it'll clear your head

    I did that once in the office at work with my roadie... everyone said the office stunk bad... I just sat there... what, I don't smell anything

    I really did not smell anything
    Just your average club rider... :)
