Do you take care of your bike?
Whenever I come back from a ride, I always wash my bikes very carefully, with paintbrush, a mix of water and soap and some cleaner that I use for all the components such as cranks, derailleurs, etc.
I guess I partly do it because all the bikes are in the house (I even have one in my bedroom). It also is some way of thanking the bike for all the great rides and seeing a clean bicycle makes me very proud and it can even avoid having all sorts of noises.
Do you wash your bike several times a week, how do you do it and why?
