I have read several treads about spray washing bikes and how bad it is for them. I tried to get away from the spray washing, but I can not get my bike very clean with a brush and soapy water or Simple Green. It is mainly the hard to get areas, but I have heard stories of the mud "pitting", or staining the bike. It seems like every time I take it out I get in mud, and many times DEEP mud... I am going to go back to the spray wash at least every other time...What should I look out for besides the bearing areas??? I do regrease my bearings every 4-6 months... What do yall do regarding cleaning a bike that gets dirty fairly often?
