Winter Bike Care

I ride my bike through winter and have used various products, eg. Scottoiler FS365 spray to protect the bike, (meant to neutralise salt etc)however i am not impressed by it, I have just recently bought ACF 50 which according to the spec and from what little i have used, it seems to be good stuff.

My question is;- Has anybody used it through winter on their bike and how do you rate it ?

No answers for you, but I am also interested in delving deep into winter on my Strommer. Only problem here is they salt the roads with a vim and vigour that boarders on environmental destruction (but probably propped up by the aftermarket muffler shops :evil: )

Don't threaten me with a dead fish!

If you ride in the snow, your bike should be called a "snowstrom"

I always used water but a spray-on product would be desirable so I don't have to fool with dragging a hose out in 20 degree weather.

Riding in the winter is a blast. You get some mighty strange looks on the extra cold days. :shock:
