I am just wondering what is the best way to dry and clean your bike after riding in the Rain? Do you just blow it off with an air compressor? Should you lube anything afterward to prevent rust?

For me, I dont normally ride in the rain, but sometimes I still get caught up in it.
Normally I just bounce the bike off the floor a few times to shake off any excess water, then I wipe everything down with a dry rag until I can re-wax the bike. Usually thats all thats required if you were just riding in the rain.

If your bike was ever completely submerged (like in the bb), then I would take it apart and blow it out real good, followed by a good cleaning and regreasing.

I just wipe mine off as soon as I get to my destination. I also clean & relube the chain as soon as is convenient.
