Alafia bike wash?
« on: May 12, 2013, 11:45:36 PM »
I went to go wash my bike after my ride today and it was gone.  Is it just a maintenance issue or were there problems with the water use?  I would miss it if it was permanently gone.

Always be certain to use a high pressure near the bearings. I recommend getting the spray nozzle close up to them and firmly squeezing the nozzle to make sure you get past the seal and blow all the dirt out.
