I would argue that spraying anything on a bicycle is a no-no. If something needs cleaning, wipe it down on the bike with a rag, or remove it from the bike for more thorough cleaning if necessary. Sprays can get all over the place, including potentially into bearings and cable housing for example.They use WD40???? I thought that was a no no. I was looking for an explanation on how to get access to the chain on my Arroyo so I could clean and lube it.
It would have. been nice if they had used a belt drive instead of chain drive.There isn't much danger if I can't get access to the chain. The manual isn't much help for me. I'll have to set the bike up on something, and figure out how the chain guard comes off. I've only got 300 miles on the bike so far so it should still be OK.
It's such a nice bike to ride, but a PITA to work on. The nearest bike shop is a 40 mile drive over a mountain pass so I'd like to figure things out.
