Default Re: Grease: How Do You Do It?

Kiteman I live in the opposite climate as you. Mojave Desert... Hot, dry, dusty, and wind. Nothing rusts at all. Risingsunn runs a bare metal frame, no rust... The 3 to 4 months of 100+ degree temps 24- 7 is the real problem. My home faces south and beginning now through September temps in the garage will reach daily highs of over 140 degrees. Just parked in my garage my bike leaks grease from the head stock to the crank to the wheels!!! So before I even ride my bike the wheel bearings and grease are already hot to start with. Riding in the heat is like riding head on into a torpedo heater running full blast. Forget about pedaling when it is 110 degrees. Moon rides in Vegas are fantastic though...
If you have to force it there must be a better way
