Bringing your bicycle in from the cold damp outside into a  warm cosy inside can eventually cause moisture to condense on the inside of the bike frame which can lead to rust.

A great solution if you use your bike for your daily commute or like many others you have committed to TRIJanuary and are getting out into the elements to do your training for the multisport challenge.
