Fenwick’s Frame & Shock Finishing Spray isn’t a polish so much as a protective spray designed for preserving seasonal machines and equipment in storage (e.g. Sunday best road bikes or summer-use-only tag-alongs).
It’s silicone free but includes a trace of lubricant, providing a showroom finish in seconds while safeguarding suspension and bearing seals. However, it does attract surface dirt more readily than furniture or car polishes and it can highlight any blemishes in flamboyant, metallic enamels and clear lacquers.
What do you wear on your commute when it is zero degrees outside? Is it different to what you wear out training in the same temperature? The difference for me is in footwear and that depends on what bike I choose to ride.
here is what I wear:
woolie boolie socks
merino track top
soft shell jacket
specialized sub zero gloves
The weather forecaster has just mentioned arctic and I don't think he meant a big lorry. So as the temperatures fall who is holding on grimly to wearing shorts or threequarters or knee warmers and showing a bit of skin?
I am still wearing shorts with knee warmers although my tootsies were a bit cold today but am resisting the neoprene gimpwear as long as possible and going to try a pair of oversocks much to my missuses incredulity 'socks over your shoes'
Who else is holding out?
As advertised on eBay.
Please look into it it's a very good quality bike.
...and then the days start getting brighter. B)
How many of the commuters on here are still doing it and how many have hung up their shorts for the season?
Cold toes are and the odd fishtailing moments are making it a tad scarier, but still the hot shower and cup of coffee that greets me (well, that I make myself) once I've arrived almost makes it worth it.
Apart from petrol seriously back over a pound, what else drives you all out in the dark?
So having survived the wet ride home I noticed that my v-brakes weren't hugely effective.
Anyone got any specific tips on tweaking them to work a bit better? Should I just tighten them up as much as possible or is it more keeping them as dry and warm as possible while riding?
