Ok I have looked through the forums and couldn't find anything on this topic so hear goes. Needless to say this is my first Denim color bike. I am used to washing and then putting a coat of wax on all my vehicles, especially before and after winter. Question is I don't see tale of anyone waxing their Denim bikes. I assume that just like a glossy clear that needs to be waxed to protect it that the matted clear would also need to be waxed. No? Thank you for all your assistance.
