Fork Cleaning

Postby Rambo_123 » Tue Nov 06, 2012 19:15 pm

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:

Just clean it out when you clean the bike.
