I'm the same, and while I do like to look after my bike and keep it in good condition, I draw the line at waxing the frame down, I think that's probably going a bit to far.BobCochran said:Wax? What wax? Time spent waxing can be spent riding. I ride.
So that's the reason for my bald friend having a suspiciously ample supply of hair conditioner :lol:Volnix said:Apparently Hair Conditioner can also be used to put a Shine on the frame.

Seriously though, that sounds a lot like one of them old wives tales, but whatever works I suppose
There is a slim possibility that this can happen but only if you use a cleaner wax, if you're using a protection synthetic wax without cleaning agents you are fine, which is why I said you must use a non abrasive synthetic wax, cleaning waxes are abrasive. Another reason for non abrasive, or non cleaning waxes, is the fact that bicycle paint jobs are a lot thinner then paint used on cars and you could in a few years give the paint on your bike a faded look. If you're getting color of the bikes paint on you waxing pad STOP and get a different wax. Most spray on waxes are not cleaning waxes, but read the bottle closely to make sure.swampy1970 said:Most automotive waxes have a fair amount of petrochemicals in them.
