To keep your frame fresh follow these three tips:
- Wipe your frame at least once a month with a diluted cleaner or soap and water. This will not only give it a clean look but will but will prevent salts and dirt from tarnishing your frame. Make sure not to get any soap or cleaner on the rotors or brake pads as this can contaminate them and cause squeaky or non-functional brakes.
- Store your bike in a dry place and wipe off any extra moisture with a towel.
- If riiding in the rain, snow, or mud, wipe off any dirt or salt, as these can be corrosive.
