Other than hanging out in a cold garage, is there any reason to refrain from polishing a motorcycle in cold weather?
Well then, you educated me with a good answer! Thank you!At liquid nitrogen temps, nearing absolute 0, I believe there is increased brittleness, but that said, I don't know how they can store liquid nitrogen at extreme pressures without the vessel becoming brittle.
Since metals in use are subjected to more forces and stresses than metals being wrenched on, if metal was that susceptible to cold, you couldn't use vehicles at 60 below. Imagine the stresses on railroad rails in Siberia
Or on the the vehicles used on the moon or in deep space at much colder temps.
Commercial aircraft fly at 30 and 40 below every day.
