What type of wax is best?
#1
Hello all,

I would like everyone's opinion on which wax is best to use on a bicycle? Please do post even if you have your own choice and methods.

Thanks,
Bill

On a high gloss surface I find nothing compares to Plexus. It is kind of pricey though.

That's exactly why I don't use most commercial waxes. I can't justify the higher cost, when Pledge is so damn cheap.
