Road Bike get ruined from salt or dirt on winter roads?
Ok where i live here in Ontario, Canada, winter seems to want to stay. However I been riding lots on the roads lately, with my winter beater mt bike. It does get dirty abit, but most of the roads now outside of city are clear of snow and ice.
Just still cold, like below freezing at times. I am riding lots as i have to to train etc.
Now I really want to get my road bike out to ride now. I know It will get a little dirty from the roads abit when riding to country? Would all the salt thats left over and road grim hurt my road bike? its a alum/carbon frame. Argon 18
Would i be ok to ride now or should i keep with riding my winter beater mt bike?
