Sorry if this is discussed often, I wasn't able to find a thread about it here or in the "101" sticky (which doesn't seem to be there anymore?).
I'm in Toronto. Winters are not the coldest, but there is a ton of salt. I wondering what the protocol is for keeping your bike working well. My challenge is that I don't have anywhere to bring my bike inside. I've had a freewheel and a derailleur royally messed up by salt before. It's a killer.
Do you wash your bike often? Wax it or do something to protect it? How do you handle salt when you bike everyday in a salty city?
