Gloss or Matte Finishes

  • Rinse your frame with water after you ride if you use sunscreen.
  • Rinse your frame with water after you ride if you have been sweating.
  • Dry your frame after rinsing.

If you want to help prevent fingerprints and surface scratches you can apply wax.

  • Gloss Finish – Paste wax (Turtle Wax) or liquid spray wax applied or wiped with a clean towel or cloth
  • Matte Finish – Liquid spray wax only.

The use of a paste wax will result in a chalk like build up. This occurs because the filler in a matte finish will hold onto the paste wax not allowing for it be completely wiped away.
Good Products For Use On Your Finish

  • Regular dish soap and water
  • Water

Products Not Recommended For Use On Your Finish

  • Anything citrus based
  • Bike Lust
  • Simple Green

For unpainted titanium or stainless bikes Strong Frames recommends you wash with warm water and dish soap and apply a thin coat of Lemon Scented Pledge to protect from grease and oil stains.
