Textures of Winter

Cleaned and lubed my Big Block yesterday and as I was cleaning the bike I got stoked on all the different textures and colors that the weather and riding had deposited on it. Salt has a unique patina all it's own.

Rad photos good sir.

Is that an AC stainless cog in the first shot? Definitely picking one of those up soon. Seems like an excellent solution to salty roads.

Got any pics of how the bike cleaned up and/or your winter cleaning techniques?

I just wipe it down, and lube my chain and the nipples on my wheels.

Yes that's an AC stainless cog.

Those are wonderful photos. However, you should take good care of your bike, most especially when winter time.
