Re: Winter wheel-free score
WD40 will make them more attractive to dust and dirt. it'll also make your caliper brakes useless.
i've stripped bikes down to raw steel and every few months i'd spray them with WD40, let it soak for a few minutes, then wipe them down. it'd keep the rust away, and that's in a beach, salt air environment.
a friend of mine sprays it on the fish he bbq's. i don't like fish, so i've never tried it.
