I recently purchased a new matte Black Specialized Venge Pro. I love the look of the matte black frame, but finding it hard to keep clean. Any oil residue from the road, sweat, spillage my bottle tends to leave a smear on the frame that’s kinda hard to get off with just soapy water. I’m reluctant to scrub the frame for fear of marking the surface and I’ve found standard bike cleaners or polishes that I’ve use on my old bike often also leave a residue on the frame.
What are you guys using to keep your matte black bikes clean and looking sweet?
