Bike Porn

So my bike has been a little dirty lately and I thought she needed a bath.



She loves being dirty. But not as much as she loves having her body washed off in a nice hot shower. That's it big girl. Wash that dirtyness off.

Oh wait? Your feet need some washing too? Well let's take care of that.


Now that you're all clean,

It's time to get you dirty all over again because that's the we she likes it.


Cheers! I was bored.

I’d be a dead man if I washed my bike in the tub.

No blow dryer here. Just a nice towel down.

Washing the mud off with water is better for the bike then leaving the mud on btw. Don't be afraid to dive that new bike of yours off into a mudhole.

unless it's really muddy and the muds dried on to the frame, a nice wet rag does fine with some Pedro's Bike Lust on the frame and fork afterwards to make her shine. Along with a chain cleaning and a fresh layer of Purple Extreme.

Good for the bike. Not so good for the plumbing.

I must admit it has performed beyond my expectations. It looks like you have better wheels and components than I do, though.

Just a few unnecessary upgrades. Well, almost. The wheels make a difference.

I have had lots of problems with the wheels. The stock tires were especially crappy.

I agree totally on that. This prompted the wheel and tire upgrade.
