Out of all the threads on how to clean a bicycle, I have not gotten one tip on how to get one's wife to clean the machine.
We are now going through a pattern of morning drizzle and my poor bike developes a crust by the time I get 40 to 50 miles.
I leave the bike in the garage, next to the door, where I might add, it is pretty darn convenient to get to, and my wife just ignores the crusted grime. I have even observed her when she walks around the bike, thinking she is so clever as to not even notice that I leave it for her. So, if you have any motivational words of encouragement that I could use on her, or any suggestions that may have her see that it is all about me and my bike...please write.
I forgot to add that this should be read with tongue planted firmly in cheek.
