So I took the new rig out for a ride today and it was a big mistake. It just rained last night and the ground was still really wet I guess ... anyway, the mud was like clay and it stuck to my tires. the bike seriously weighed 70 lbs with all the mud. Anyway, I managed to ride downhill and then hosed off the bike. I noticed where the frame goes around the tires, the mud took off a nice patch of paint. This happened in six spots on my bike ... kinda sucks cause it's brand new.
Anyone else have this happen or am I the only one that rides in clay?
What parts should I be worried about lubing again after I had to hose off the entire bike. It took me 2 hours to clean everything.
