Do you break out the carnauba wax or Frame Juice after every ride? Or just sling your bike in the shed till next time? For me it depends on the weather. In the winter if the bike is covered in an inch of mud then mine gets a jet wash in the back garden, a quick wipe down and left to dry over night then a re-lube of the chain a squirt of fork juice on the stanchions. In the summer (IF it doesnt rain, jokes right!) then the bike gets a clean as and when it really needs it with regular chain lubes. Every couple of months it gets a good clean, cassette, chain ring, soak the chain & clean & re-lube, give the whole frame and rims a wipe over with Back to Black silicone spray, looks like new after!
