This week I finally got around to taking apart and cleaning my winter bike. Both brakes were shot, the nipples on the rear wheel are frozen (but luckily it's super true), and I decided to swap cranksets to something a little more attractive.

Checking out the parts that came off the bike, I couldn't believe how well the salt had worked it's way onto every surface of my bottom bracket spindle and crank arm tapers.

That's a pretty snug fitting interface there, but salt can't be stopped. It's annoying as hell.

(that's the last time I bring it up until winter)

I'll have pics of the new build soonish.
