In a rural area outside Athens (Greece). Twisty roads, not many cars, full of green around promise nice rides.  :002:

I don't believe it. All these bikes are far too polished to actually be used ....  :155:

I didn't take the 'before' picture. Getting those wheels 'super clean' and polished again, did take some effort.

Some use fancy chemicals and a water blaster. I do it the old fashioned way and have the associated cuts and bruises to prove it :012:

So I thought it might be worth a photo  :028:

The bike doesn't look that clean and shiny now I'm afraid. I'm glad they don't salt the roads here at least, the usual winters muck washes off with a little elbow grease and Zep Industrial Strength Orange Degreaser.

Salt water based cancer is a little less curable..

Here they mix it with molasses. Supposedly makes it last longer, more sticky and slippery as  :172: Weekly commute is about 900 miles so smothered the bike with ACF50 a few weeks ago and won't touch it again until Spring (except for lights and mirrors). That stuff is wonderful, one session with a hosepipe and it will be all clean and shiny.
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.
