rode hard/put up wet
My bike sat in an unconditioned space this winter and the spokes on the front wheels now have a nice coat of rust on them. It took over two hours to clean and polish them and my fingers are sore as shit. This is the second time I have had to do this and it will be the last. This is the first set of twisted spokes I have had and I hate em. Next winter I am taking the wheel apart, powder coating them and put them back with new straight stainless spokes.
