For Mountain Bike riders, rain is a normal thing. The pollution of the atmosphere makes the surface water and rain water pH changes, acid rain often under a long time without maintenance will accelerate the corrosion of the paint, so that it may even oxidize the flaking.

Why? It can destroy drivetrains, brake pads and shift. Plus it’s heavy, and if you’re like me, you want to shed every possible pound before shreddin’ the trail.
After obvious souvenirs from the trail are removed from your bike, place the bike in a repair stand if you have one, wipe the whole rig down with soapy water and apply degreaser to the drivetrain.
Removing the wheels will allow you to clean areas that are typically unseen. Brushes, rags, and sponges should be used to get rid of mud and other grit. Just remember to gently scrub your bike down. You don’t want to damage your paint job!
Don’t neglect your Bicycle Chain and rear cassette. You can either manually clean the chain by gently scrubbing with a brush (a toothbrush works well for this) and water right where it meets the rear cassette, or use an on-the-bike cleaning machine, which clips over the lower part of the chain and bathes the chain in a solvent. Backpedal the chain through a rag drenched in degreaser once it’s scrubbed clean.
Wash all areas of the bike down with a biodegradable soapy water mix. Then rinse it down with a hose. Note: high-pressure water hoses are NOT safe to spray your bike with. Use a garden hose on a gentle setting and don’t spray water into the bearings.
Once your bike is dry, your Bicycle Chain, Bike Brake Cable, Bicycle Stem, shifters, derailleur pulleys, pivot points, and brake bosses need to be lubricated. So as not to invite more dirt for a ride, wipe off any excess lube after application.Give your bike a little grease at this point too. Pay attention to the pedals and seat post.
Remove both the pedals and seat post, then apply the grease where metal makes contact with metal. In the case of the pedals, grease is applied to the threads that screw into the crank arms.
