    Never Wet for commuting shoes/frame?
    With winter coming up, I thought I would post this question.

    Has anyone tried putting NeverWet from Rustoleum on their cycling shoes?

    How about on the road frame itself? It may make cleaning easier ya?

    What do u think....

    NeverWet is mind-blowing. [VIDEO]

    When I first saw the video, it seemed like the product was too good to be true. After reading reviews on several sites, it appears that it is. But I have never tried it personally (and after reading the reviews I'll keep my money in my pocket).

    ya, I've heard breathability can be an issue. Can anyone comment on the using it on cycling shoes?

    The frame probably wouldn't be an issue in that regard

    ^^ That and the fact that many, many reviews comment that the stuff only is effective for a few days.

    Yeah, I've seen several really, really terrible reviews for it.

    I wax my frames with carwax once or twice a year, and fill them with boeshield (can't find framesaver locally).

    My bike shoes usually get sprayed with one of those standard scotchguardy water repellents when I first get them, although the shoes are currently disgusting.

    I have not used it, but my standbys are:

    Armor-All Cleaning Wipes for the bike.

    Nikwax or similar boot waterprooofer for shoes, a couple times a year, even if they are fake leather. A brisk brush and good old saddlesoap first if they are dirty. The cleaning wipes are also good for cleaning off shoes prior to the Nikwax.
