Just picked up my winter bike after having it serviced. Had just planned to have the cables and break pads adjusted as it had a total breakdown service in April. Since then it has been stored in the garage.
Thing is, it’s stored on brackets in quite close proximity to my trainer.
When I picked the bike up, the mechanic asked me if I’d stored the bike near the coast. I laughed as said ‘no, why?’ He said the it was riddled with corrosion. He’d had to strip it down and kept the hub and bottom bracket bearings to show me. They were shot.
So my question. Is it even possible that my perspiration during the workouts is adversely effecting this bike, purely based on where I’m storing it?
