Wax on Carbon Fiber(7 posts)

I've got 3 bikes. One is all carbon and the other two are aluminum and carbon mix. I'm very proud of all three of them and I want them to look good for a long time. Should I put wax on them like a car? If so, is there any special type of wax I should use?

Thats what I have been using on my campy stuff!the bull

It's a silicon-based wax/cleaner that you can use to clean and wax your bike. If it's really dirty you may want to wash it 1st, but most of the time you can just spray it on and it even will take tar off your down-tube. Lasts a long time and isn't very expensive-you can get it from your LBS if they carry Pedro's stuff.

i second bike lust. Be careful that when you are spraying it on you don't get it on your rims because it is a wax and will screw with your braking abilities. Just a friendly reminder.

Usually I spray it on a rag when I am cleaning anywhere near the wheels-nothing worse than flying down a hill and realizing that you can't stop!
