Laundry Detergent??? Seriously??? Don't use dish washing soap, it will remove any waxes or polishes. Just use regular car wash soap.

I haven't washed my bike since the day i got it... I know it is sad... but it is the harsh reality...

get you all the usually cloths, rags and sponges at walmart. and i also suggest some kerosene and a grungbrush (cyclegear) to clean your chain. after washing the bike youll want to lube your chain as well.

here is what my baby looks like after a alot of elbow grease (and a sunburn):

I do. I spray over the scratches too. Works for me. Have you seen my bike?

On yours? I'd probably use some water and light detergent. Don't use the water hose where water pressure will force moisture in (wheel bearings, steering head bearings, electrical parts, etc).

I use the hose on my bikes. Always have. Know lots of people that do as well and never had any issues from it.
