> I've never owned an all-chromed bicycles and not much of what I own is chromed at all. Does one have to be careful about riding them in the rain, or perhaps at least more careful drying them off afterwards? Will a chrome finish hold up to occasional outdoor riding in all types of weather?<
It does require more attention than paint. Best thing is to wash with a mild soap, rinse and dry. Then protect with an occasional coat of automotive chrome cleaner and polish.
