I bought a cheap-o power washer from Harborfreight. It was less than $100 and I had a 20% coupon. I ride all year(roads permitting), and have had it for four years now. It takes less than five minutes to hook it up, and wash whichever bike I used. Then I pull the bike into the garage, which never gets below 40*, onto a large piece of cardboard. It can drip dry or if I feel ambitious , I dry it by hand. I only wash it like this after five or six rides, so it's not a hassle at all. Keeps them looking good, and no salt residue worries!
