    Wife caught me in the shower with ...

    ....the Bianchi.

    Well I wasn't really in the shower, I just didn't feel like going out in the cold and washing it off so I brought it in and stood it in the shower and hosed it down gently on pulse.

    I don't think I have ever seen a look on her face like the one she had when she realized what I was doing She said she thinks I love that da** bike more than her. Of course I think she was teasing but I sure wish I could have taken a picture of the incredulous look she gave

    P.S. Dish soap nicely cleans up any grease spots that stick around on a plastic tub.

    Sounds like you need to stand your wife in the shower and hose her down gently on pulse. She's jealous.

    That's funny. I am glad I'm not the only one. The look I got from my friends when I answered a question on how I keep my bikes clean during the winter was priceless. It was a sort of "disturbed but not quite sure if he is serious" look when I told them I give my bikes a shower.

    But really, it does work well when you get home after a muddy or wet ride and put the bike straight in the shower and clean it off. Then lube it after it dries. I live in a place where the past renters must have been elderly and the shower head is removable and there are handles where I can hang my bike by the seat and it makes washing them very easy. Good stuff.

    On a semi-serious note though, a contributing reason I broke up with my ex-fiance was my love for bikes. I don't think she liked them as much as she said she did. Be careful! (Just kidding)

    Back in my college dorm days, I always washed my bike (MTB) in the shower. My floormates were sometimes not too pleased with the large clumps of mud I left behind.

    Don't forget to towel her dry, lube her up and ride her hard. And go on a bike ride too.

    I can't believe all the reasons we are finding on this forum not to get married. In another thread we discovered that marriage can lead to getting beat up by motorcycle gangs. Now in this thread we discover you may be be able to wash your bike in the shower! I think you better talk to your wife and inform her that unless she gets her priorities straight you are walking!

    I wouldn't do that
    I wouldn't want my computer to get jealous of the Bianchi

    thewalrus started a thread in road cycling with a new LBS ad that bears a striking resemblance to your situation.
