Default How to clean a matte black finish (frame/helmets/forks etc.)

Hi guys, I'm new to mountain biking. For bikers who owns matte black parts or anyone knowledgable about this, I would like to know some tips on how to clean it. What brands of shampoo? and also how do you wax it? Thanks.

yung frame ko matte black, so far.....eh punas lang kapag road rides. kapag putik rides naman...hose down, tapos bath soap lang, hindi detergent, then wash with water.

wax? err..i don't do it. otherwise i could've gotten a glossy frame.

Punas-punas lang din ng medyo basang basahan o kaya tuyong basahan. Minsan pinapaliguan ko with a few drops ng Joy diluted sa isang tabong tubig. Ingat lang at baka malagyan ng Joy ang hubs, stanchion at bottom bracket.

Ang gusto ko sa matte frame ay madaling itago ang mga gasgas gamit ang electrical tape o kaya pentel pen.

micro fiber cloth tanggal yung grease/oil marks sa matte black na frame.

I just bought a 2013 Giant XTC frame. Matte finish yata siya (tama ba?). Thank you rin sa mga tips at sa thread starter. Agree ako don sa micro fiber cloth. Mas maganda nga syang pampunas ng bike. I've been using that type of cloth sa old frame ko. My XTC is just 3-day old kaya very helpful po kayo. Salamat po.

just use a lint free cloth if dark yung color ng frame mo. microfiber would be much better. if matte black sya, you can also use wipe out in minimal amounts para mamaintain na mukhang bago sya without the gloss effect after cleaning.

ok lang ba pahiran ng tire black or similar solutions yung matte-finish na frame? kung hindi OK yung tire black ano po ang pwedeng alternative na di masama sa paint?

kaya ko naisip to kase gusto ko mas black ang appearance nya - kung napansin nyo pag nabasa yung matte na component mas nagmumukha syang black. Ayaw ko ng gloss, tulad ng sabi ni sir anthrax, kung ganun lang din mag-glossy frame na lang ako. Habol ko lang talaga yung deep black appearance. BTW, KHS alite2000 ang frame ko. TIA

pag nilagyan mo yan ng tire black, magiging magnet for dirt lang yan. Punas lang ng damp cloth.
