Now I admit, I am not the great cleaner, when it comes to my bikes. Unfortunately with Winter usage of bikes comes exposition to salt. A lot of salt. Now over the years I've tried quite a few things, but two years ago I tried some protective spray wax, as used on new cars to prepare them for oversea shipping.
As a sidenote, it comes off very easily with hot water and soap.
I'll let that result speak for itself.
Yes it truly is this shiny. 😎
