I'm new to biking in the city and have mostly gone on a long rides on trails. Coming from California, I'm also very new to the weather conditions while biking in Seattle. The bike I have with me is a Specialized road bike that I love and took a lot of time to save up for. I'm a little hesitant to ride it in the Seattle rain since I've read a lot about bikes getting trashed in the rain.
Are there ways to take care of bikes through this weather?
Or am I left with no other option than to buy another commuter bike for commuting in Seattle?
