Pedro's Bike Lust is a great product but, unless you want to say hello to asphalt, do NOT put it on your roadbike tires! Bike Lust's label recommends putting it on tires but Pedro's Project Manager, Johannes Huseby, has confirmed that Bike Lust "is not intended to be used on road bicycle tires as it may make them more slippery. It does however work very well for off road use for both mountain and cyclocross bikes. It will shed the dirt that gets caught in between the knobs and many racers and enthusiasts have been very happy with the results."
I always use it on my tiresAndy

... at least until I ran out in October. I'd spiff my bike and tires up just before the Tuesday night criteriums and never had a wreck. From now on I'll just do the sidewalls and not the tread.

That would be "braking" on your "rims," not "sidewalls" -- dumbass! Learn the terminology or continue to lurk.

(Sorry, that was a low-hanging fruit.)

Anyway, I like Bike Lust. I was given a bottle and it seems to offer a bit of protection. It also works on my truck's dashboard.
The brake pads don't touch the sidewalls nmsuperdog

Under NO circumstances should you put it on your wheel siderims. Can you say "no brakes?!"

I wipe down my bike's after each ride using full strength Simple Green, even the tires. Been doing it for years with no problems. Basically I just want to clean my tires off and inspect them.
Love the stuff, but not on my tires. nmfbg111
