Salty Dog

Word to the wise. Change your handlebar tape and clean your bars before it gets to this point. I was changing the bar tape on a customers bike (who shall remain nameless) and discovered this glowing mass of sodium. Out came the rubber gloves for the rest of the job. I think Sully used some of it to season his low sodium soup. After some antibacterial soap and some elbow grease with a scotch brite pad I could see the Aluminum. The real point is that sodium can react with the Aluminum and corrode and fatigue the handlebar. Be safe, change your tape regularly.
