great cheers guys. I might only do the cleaning step if it's picked up a lot of mud in future

thanks, from the various comments, it sounds like it'll be ok til i can get it home and sort it out then. I just know it can be harmful to store your bike outside and i thought, hang on, mine is effectively outside for 8 hours a day, plus 2 hours while i'm using it!

thanks - I might swap the daily spray for a weekly clean!

Thanks! I only got the bike a few weeks ago so i'm trying to stay on top of it from the start instead of trying to start looking after it when it's already rusted like i have with older bikes

haha its the first relatively nice bike i've had and I do a lot of miles on it. I depend on it for getting to work so I am worried if i treat it like i've treated some old bikes it won't last very long! Its fairly easy to give it a quick rinse with the hose before it goes into the conservatory and it makes it easier to get the mud off while it's fresh before it dries. I only do a 30 second job on it, i certainly dont get it all off, just a quick spray!

comment Headphones while cycling
I would say no one has come up with a specific scenario where headphones have caused an accident - assuming the cyclist is doing everything else correct (well lit, looking over shoulder before moving out etc). The question was clearly asking for facts or examples rather than trying to provoke a discussion!
