In this 'ible I'll show you how I clean my bike after it's been raining for weeks and the caked on mud is sure to lead to grinding damage to the components.
It was late night when I cleaned my bike and realized I should share what I did after I cleaned the bike so the images in this 'ible are re-enacted. The only hint of how dirty the bike was is in the image showing the underside of the saddle.
Where in the Apartment?
Anywhere with tile or waterproof / easy to clean floor. I used my kitchen but you may want to use your balcony, bathroom, or even the hallway outside your micro domicile.
Step 1: What You'll Need
- 2 Wash Basins (wide and shallow is best)
- Biodegradable Single Use Scrub Brush
- Pre Soaped Rag (Makes for easier cleaning later, not shown in image)
- Hot Soapy Water
