Was just wondering if cleaning the bit inside the fork (as in the hole that looks onto the tyre) would damage anything or make it rust. If someone could answer it would be much appreciated

    I'm thinking of the bottom of the steerer tube - clean is better than dirty.

    on second thoughts.... i prefer it dirty :twisted:

    All excessive cleaners seem to have more issues than excessive riders!

    Just clean it out when you clean the bike.
