Ooh, is this another thread where folks come to brag about never cleaning their bikes? I do love those!

Unless you're a regular winter-weather rider, a bike is best served by a quick wipe-down with a microfiber and whatever you choose to clean the bike with.

On the occasions where a soap 'n water wash are called for, use the water sparingly. No need for high pressure. Try to avoid getting anything with wax on the brake tracks/pads/discs.

Biggest cleaning mistake I've made? I would reckon detailer overspray on the brake rotors. Braked fine, but oh, what a noise. Like a couple of angry geese.
