Cleaning wheel parts?
« on: August 31, 2019, 07:44:31 PM »
I caught a screw on my rear tire and had to remove it. During removal, one of the lugs was incredibly stuck, so much that I bent my cheap socket extension. After the tire was gone, I see some grime/calcium-like stuff around the disc and such.

What do you guys use to clean these parts? Nut threads, nuts, inner disc, etc.

Thanks!

Also, here's one for laughs:

I use a wire brush then put a very light coat of waterproof grease on everything . I ride rain or shine and it helps tremendously with keeping the corrosion away
