You can wax your new painted bike if you want to. It will not effect Imron and most paints if the paint is cured.If the paint has been baked then it is cured. You should wax it before you assemble the bike. With other paints you should be safe also, but there is a possibility that something could react, there are just too many different types of paint and waxes. Wax is non abrasive. It will not remove a decal with clear on it.

Yesterday I waxed a bike (no not the bike that Brian just painted) and my B'friend told me I'd ruin the clear coat and make it all cloudy. Or at least someone told him that.

I checked the archives and I see no references to ruining anything but decals by choosing an overly abrasive wax. Is there any truth to what he is telling me?
