Precautions with Steel frames
I realize this a pretty basic question, and I've been serious about biking for years, but here it goes: I just picked up the first steel framed bike that I've ever owned. I've heard several different opinions about what care needs to be taken with steel frames after wet rides, many of which seem to conflict each other. With my aluminum MTB, it wasn't a big issue-I'd just wipe it down after I got home. I would assume that a thorough drying of the bike and relubing of moving parts after particularly wet rides would make sense. I've also heard of being carful about moving steel-framed bikes from a very cold environment(garage in winter) into a warm environment(house in winter) because it can cause condensation to form inside the tubes. Are ther any other considerations about taking care of a steel frame after wet rides? I just want to make sure as this bike has been a very big investment for me. THANKS!!
