Thinking ahead... question of protecting...
Hello fellows basking in the spring warmth.
This past winter I protected bolts/pivots/hinges/exposed metal of my bike with "ReleaseAll!". It's supposed to be a non-toxic and biodegradable WD40 alternative. I sprayed the stuff liberally. The problem with it is the same as with WD40, it washes out grease and lasts maybe one or two wet days. I believe the stuff got into my drum brake and my front wheel squeals terribly
. I also repacked my hub twice this past season! I peg this on my liberal use of "ReleaseAll!".
I've done a search and saw that some of you recommend car wax for this purpose. Next winter I'd like to try something more viscous.
What is the wax you use? Or is there something even better. I'd be looking for something that is environmentally friendly and very easy to apply.
