Frank has men­tioned on a num­ber of oc­ca­sions about the dele­te­ri­ous ef­fect of the sea air on bikes in the Big Shed. I see that some of your bikes have quite ex­pen­sive dust cov­ers over them which will of­fer lit­tle pro­tec­tion. I have tried a Vac-Bag this win­ter which comes with a dry­ing agent and keeps the bike sealed from the el­e­ments. Maybe you have tried one?

The cov­ers are ef­fec­tive when used in con­junc­tion with ACF50. And yes, we have two ‘posh’ bikes tucked away in Vac-Bags com­plete with des­ic­cant. We even have a bike bub­ble, com­plete with a fan and fil­ters and ex­cit­ing things like that. Mice eat them you know, and then you can’t in­flate them. The se­cret is to wash bikes thor­oughly and re­grease ev­ery­thing ev­ery time you ride in the win­ter – which to be hon­est I find tire­some. Just lazi­ness! FrankW
