    Bike blow dryer

    Bought a bike blow dryer last week http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2800W-Dog-...49506667?rt=nc and very impressed with it, esp considering the price compared to bike specific ones. It has two fan speeds and two heat settings. The whole thing feels very robust and is very effective.

    The subject has been done to death, but I still reckon that

    Cold air - blows the water (including the minerals) OFF the bike

    Hot air - also evaporates the water - leaving the minerals ON the bike.

    I use a leaf-blower.

    Al
    If I am ever on life support - Unplug me......
    Then plug me back in..........

    See if that works .....

    Warm air is best.
