Works as advertised, but is one for patient and caring bike owners

Frame Protectant is the third and final product in WD-40 Bike’s cleaning and preparation lineup. It’s essentially a polish that is designed to be used after Heavy-Duty Degreaser and Foaming Wash, to bring surfaces to a shine and create a slick finish that will prevent further dirt from sticking.

WD-40 Bike Frame Protectant isn’t too different from polishes found in an auto store. It takes some effort to get the most from it though, so you’ll need a bit of patience when using it. Use it to buff the surfaces of your bike, and remove tiny-blemishes, leaving behind a perfectly clean shine.

Like many surface polishers, frame protectant has a very minor cutting component which will help buff out small scratches and swirls in the paint caused by dirt and grit, but don’t expect it to remove gouges.

It’s white in colour, so it’s easy to see where its been applied and where still needs buffing. Frame Protectant leaves a slippery surface behind and the areas of the frame that we cleaned with it are noticeably easier to clean again after further rides.
