Default Re: Strengenthing my new cruiser

All my BMX racers had aluminum rims. I never, ever came close to having the brake pads wear them thin. If fact the weirdest thing I did was use WD40 to clean the aluminum rims and after a few questionable stops, wow! It actually improved the stopping power. It makes absolutely no sense to me at all but it was recommended to me and it works.
