Be careful what you put on a carbon frame. And watch out for over spray.

Yes, and taking the time to it clean works 100% of the time. Leaving nothing to chance.

I've heard it works pretty well as a saucer sled lubricant

Careful Clark!

Actually when I go out Mt Biking on Snow trails I spray My cleats and the pedals with Non-stick Cooking Spray and it does help keeping my cleats/pedals from clogging up with snow.
