Last week, bored and not having been out on the bike for a while, I took to roads as it was dry, even though I knew they were covered in salt and I met gritters out and about. It was to be a cloudless and so cold night that night.
The next day was the start of three days of rain, so I left the bike under its covers, confident in the ACF50 that I use. But in three days, what a mess of corrosion had appeared on the chain and the brake discs.
The chain needed a thorough clean and it is OK. It is the brake discs that look terrible, primarily around the edges of the holes between the flat section the brake pads work on and the inner part. I gave them a good rub with an old, clean toothbrush, but that hardly took off anything. Is there a solution, or am I now stuck with unsightly discs?
