Properly caring for your bike after it's been in the rain for a while
Anyone have any normal operating procedure for after that happens?
Maybe starting with... if the bike is still wet wipe it down with a towel
i don't stop
that's it, a towel.
if you don't already have a hole in your bb shell
and you drive that bike in the rain often, you
should drill a hole.
otherwise, if you don't have all sealed cartridge
bearings, you just need to clean and re-grease
everything once in a while.
um, never leave it out in the rain?
if you've been riding in the rain, I reccomend getting a roll of those blue shop towels and spinning the rear wheel whilst wiping down the chain real quick.
not in the sense of a real or thorough chain-cleaning, but a quick remove-the-grit wipe.
if you're talking more than a day of bad weather riding, check your chain tension regularly. the road crap stretches them really fast.
