carbon fiber cleaning
I have learned a few things about carbon fiber cleaning. First off, I'm a fiddle player and cleaning a fiddle is a somewhat delicate thing. Recently I read and article about the somewhat new carbon fiber violins and bows that are coming out. For around 10,000 USD you can buy a top line carbon fiber violin and for 1000 USD you can buy a really good carbon bow. The article went out to say that one of the advantages of a carbon fiddle and bow is that they can be cleaned with Windex. Even pure ethanol will work very well. Made me think about all the posts here from people terrified to wash their bikes with anything more than water. It has always sort of amazed me the paranoia that new carbon bike owners have displayed. How to wash it? Oh my god, I've got a nick or chip in it? Will this or that lube cause my bike to melt? More than a few of you out there need to get a grip.
