yeah i know, the problem is that, here where i live, you cant wash your stuff, like cars, motorcycles and bikes at your house, because of "german controled water waste", so i have to go to the gas station and the only way to wash is with pressure water...

If it was me a bucket and sponge would be worth the cost to save every seal and bearing on you your bike. That's on you though.


guys guys.. the best way to wash a bike is....
Method A
big brush and dishwasher soap... then use a sprinkle head to wash off the results of the big brushing... if you really need it clean...
wipe off with a dry rag to dry it...

or....
Method B
wait till it dries...
brush off the big stuff till it is all dusty and then use a rag with a bit of bike solvent to wipe off the residual dust...
wipe of with dry rag to get the rest


I have tried lots of things as I have 5 bikes and a busy family... but I don't want to be replacing bearings and overhauling 3 sets of forks all the time...


method b will probably take more time but mean leass bearing wear as things still get in through bearing seals if you use method A...

remember to keep bike in a coolish dry place so there is no moisture on the bikes (ie moisture evaporates after cleaning... Not in a shed... not so much in a really cold garage... esp steel bikes.... with steel bikes it is good to spray the inside of the frame with framesaver...
