Hi every just joined the site and just got a decent bike after trying to keep fit by riding 16 mile every day for the last 3 years on a rusty old , gear slipping teenagers reject bike .....I've now progressed up to 2010 Specialized RockHopper SL Pro second hand but immaculate and like its just been walked out the bike shop (the guy brought it and never ride it) .....Now I love this bike and would like to look after it I have looked at so many wash and clean, maintain your bike Vids write ups.
At the moment only when it gets really muddy I'm jet washing it on a very gentle setting then drying it as much as poss with towels. Once it has dried completely I'm polishing it with Auto Glym car polish and spraying the chain, sprockets, forks, crank with GT85 being very carefully to avoid my brakes and discs......Will GT85 lubricate every thing well enough ? Is there anything else I need to do to look after my bike and keep it in good order ????
