Winter Maintneance question
Okay, so I am planning on commuting this winter alot more than I have in the past.
In previous years, because I didn't commute very much, I could clean and lube drivetrain between each ride. Now that I am going much more often, how often should I clean & lube?
I the summer I clean weekly, and full wash with soap every other week. I lube weekly, and relube maybe once a week if necessary.
I'm thinking of cleaning weekly and lubing every other day.
My ride is 32km round trip, and I'm in Winnipeg - wicked cold, but it's a dry cold!
Also, what are people's thoughts on inside vs. outside? I have access to heated indoor parking, so I'd rather park there than outside
