Can you wax your bike in a basement during December (MD)?

Everything says its better to wax in the heat. And that it will not bind to the paint correctly if its too cold. Also, its better to do it outside etc. Sooo is it that accurate or what????

The bike is pretty clean when I put it in the basement around September 1

Since I cant ride, waxing her would make me happy :) :toocool::hump:)

Why do you leave your bike in md when you spend most of your year in la at school?? Personally, I'd want to be taking advantage of all the awesome riding in cali and the perfect weather but that's just me...

You'll be fine to wax it, your basement shouldn't be cold enough to make it not work.
