It’s that time of year again, winter! Along with winter comes the salt and grit on the roads which loves to eat away at your bike and chain, well that’s if you let it!
There are some very simple ways to prevent this and prolong the lifespan of your components, keeping your beloved stead running smoothly.
Dirt Wash Chain Cleaning Machine
To prolong the lifespan of your chain and keep your bike running smoothly you need to keep on top of the maintenance, especially when they start to grit the roads.
Pack contains Chain Degreaser Machine and 75ml bottle of Citrus degreaser. Priced in-store at only £19.99
This doesn’t need to be a long gruesome task with the Dirt Wash Chain Cleaning Machine.
Dirt Wash Bike Cleaner
Dirt Wash Bike Cleaner is ideal for cleaning your bike after a hard day on the trails on road.
The formula is designed to be tough on dirt yet gentle on your bikes and is safe to use on painted, plated, polished or clear coated finishes.
Spray the whole bike with Dirtwash Bike Cleaner to bring a sparkle back to the paintwork and any polished metal parts, then rinse with clean water.
Priced in-store at only £7.99 for a 1 litre bottle.
Fenwicks Foaming Chain Cleaner
Fenwicks Foaming Chain Cleaner is a wet degreaser designed to stay in place whilst working on the effected areas. Due to its rich foam qualities the degreaser is far less messy to work with as brushing and agitating the product does not fling it everywhere unlike watery degreasers.
Can be sprayed directly on to the chain, cassette, and chain rings and washed off with water to leave a clean contaminant-free drive train.
How to use Fenwicks Foaming Chain Cleaner
Shake can before use.
No need to wet bike beforehand even when dirt is dried on.
Step 1: Place chain in middle gear for ease of use.
Step 2: Whilst turning the crank spray Fenwick’s Foaming Chain Cleaner directly on to chain.
Step 3: Leave to soak for a couple of minutes – this can be done whilst you clean the rest of the bike with Fenwicks FS-10 Bike Cleaner.
Step 4: For best results run the chain through the Fenwicks Chain Cleaning Sponge, specifically designed to agitate and, importantly, capture the chain dirt for a cleaner clean.
Step 5: Rinse thoroughly with clean water.
I personally use and love the Fenwicks Foaming Chain Cleaner, it’s so easy and quick to use and you can literally see the grease and crap drip off the bike.
