sometimes I park the bike for the winter, but the warm autumn encouraged me to carry my plates thru the winter too. so, I'm commuting in rain, coming home in the dark, etc... and therefore generally doing NO maintenance to the bike - just treating it as a winter hack. and there is a price to be paid for such neglect! namely, your chain gets to looks like this:

( I know, I know, and I'm ashamed of myself...)


so today it was at least dry, if not balmy, so I spent a couple hours with kerosene, a toothbrush, a little wire brush, shop towels, etc - then a hose-down, some chain lube, and... presto!

I know I need a new chain come spring, but at least I'll get there on this one now...

Note to self:

Do not buy a bike from doser.
:laughing keep 'em for well over 100,000 kms anyway, so it's not like that particular opportunity comes up frequently.
