If you like looking at clean bikes, or squirm at the sight of dead bugs, then please read no further.
If, on the other hand, you have a warped, morbid sense of fascination with *those* sorts of images, read on.
This is what a bike looks like after 7 hours, 48 minutes, 107km of dirt and mud, and then driving home through a locust plague.
Don't say I didn't warn you:
6 hours of cleaning so far, and the wheels aren't even done yet. I think there's another 2 hours in it yet, especially after I go back over it with the torque wrench.
Awesome bike for a long ride though. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Well, most of it. Not the mud bits.
