1. Not cleaning the bike, idea is that dirt is not pushed into places it’s not supposed to. I guess mud contains the moisture for longer allowing corrosion to take place. (my previous preferred method, along with various fenders)
2. Blasting the bike with a hose/pressure washer and allowing to dry in a warm place. Hopefully clears away mud etc, but can get forced into bearings. (a method I don’t intend to try)
3. Cleaning gently with muc-off etc and a light hose, then treating all vulnerable areas to a water disperser/non stick coating (which seems like a good idea to me at the moment). Idea is that water/muck never gets a chance to penetrate, but chemical can destroy grease, but a grinding paste situation shouldn’t happen.
Whats your preferred treatment?
