Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Wash Your Bike?
Wash your bike every day, even if you haven't been for a ride. What's that? Your bike has suddenly developed a creak/click/knock/other random noise? No problem Sir/Madam/Other, I can strip your frame and replace your dirty old bearings in a jiffy, for a small (/large) fee. Seriously though, I wish folks would just ride their bikes and then wipe the stanchions before they put them away. That's all you need to do. Washing is only necessary if the bike is caked from going out on a very muddy ride (which, in my opinion should be avoided as FS bikes don't like getting wet at all) My personal FS bike gets ridden 3X a week (dry weather only for the FS) and then brushed with a stiff brush and the stanchions get a wipe before I put it away. It doesn't make any noises and everything is smooth. I only have to replace the bearings once every 18 months.

Review: Dainese Armoform Knee Guards
@one38: Sounds good, My Launch Pro's are only 3 rides old, so might be a while until it's time for a change lol.
