What type of wax is best?
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.

Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!
Lemon Pledge for me.
Unscented for me.

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.
