The Bike Wash

Usually I would be the one doing this. I even went out of my way and bought my dishwashing liquid, a brush and a couple of sponges. I even did a trial and cleaned out my old parts for selling. But what made me bring the bike to All Terra Bike Shop in Libis last Saturday to have it cleaned is something I've yet to figure out.

Don't get me wrong. All Terra's bike wash is really good. It may take some time but it's worth it. After they're through with your ride, it would be so clean that riding it on the trails would be blasphemy.

Maybe it's the tamad factor. Taking out all the mud and muck will take more time than the usual routine - something I couldn't afford as I had to go work that afternoon. Maybe, at that moment, just having it squeaky clean far outweighs the ecstasy of your hands sliding on the frame with a soapy sponge in tow.

I guess I would never know.
