I’m not a huge fan of washing my bike. I love having the bike clean – and I’d fully endorse the procedure of cleaning you bike. I just don’t care for the actual act of cleaning. It is tedious, greasy and wet. Compounding the issue is the fact that the longer you put it off (presumably because it is tedious, greasy and wet) you are not only causing excessive wear to your drive train and other moving parts, you’re also making the inevitable bike wash more tedious, greasier and wetter.
