getting ready for a salty icy winter in mid-state NY. never mind the drive train, but what, if anything, can i do to protect my wheels---specifically, the spoke nipple into the rim, and the hub? The nipples are AL, the rim is a Salsa Delgado Race 29er, the spokes are just standard DTs, and the hubs are simple XTs (disc).
Is linseed oil of any use, or will it just fling off? Is there nothing to do but to clean and inspect the wheel regularly (which i plan to do to the whole bike anyway).
I don't really want to get a set of winter-only wheels; neither room for it nor budget.
