Winter Pro Tip

Lube those nipples son!

The other day I stripped my neglected winter ride down to the frame to make sure nothing was seized.

As part of this maintenance I of course had to put my wheels in the stand to straighten them out after a winter of running into things.

Especially for winter bikes, but useful on any true is some Triflow on the threads and spoke holes in the rim.

This helps eliminate spoke twist and lessens the chance of stripping out the nipples.

Just make sure you wipe it off the brake track before you go get too rad.IMG_8286
