In 2020, people were desperate to get out and enjoy the weather since most of us were staying indoors and social distancing. Many people rushed to bike stores and bought out so many bikes. It seemed as if bikes were hard to come by last year. This year, we’re expecting to see more bikers out than ever. In the summer months, your bike can have some dirt and grime after long rides and many uses. It’s important to clean your bike thoroughly throughout the summer.
As any cyclist will tell you, rainwater, sun, and gravel are a few of what you can expect to damage your bike by either causing rust, chipped paint, or denting. Aside from those types of damage, everyday dirt can build up on the bike and decrease the bike’s ability to run and function properly.
Routine cleaning is essential to the upkeep of your bike, specifically during the summer months when the bike is in use the most.
The Best Way to Prevent a Dirty Bike is to Clean It
A good scrub will remove all the dirt and grime that accumulates inside and out. How effective your cleaning job will be is based upon the product you plan on using. There are many cleaning solutions on the market but not all can ensure to clean without scratching and stripping of paint. You can test a product on the smallest part of the bike as a trial run, but that is a risk not needed to take.
A solution to your bike cleaning needs is the melamine sponge.
- This revolutionary sponge has been designed to use on a variety of surfaces, but more specifically for boats and automobiles.
- The non-abrasive sponge works well and easily to clean and polish in one movement.
- Melamine sponges are also very durable and will hold up for a large automobile like a motorcycle.
