“ eliminates grease and dirt „
I picked this up from my local hein gericke for a princley £4.00 at the start of the summer in preparation for the summer biking season. Its obviously very important to keep your bike chain well maintained all year round and on periodically particularly before long rides and every few months otherwise.
Ok so this handly little solution from hein gericke is just the ticket for getting all the grub and grime accumulated on the bike chain from the road surface whether its just dirt and dust to more stubborn intruders imbedded on the chains grubby lubricant. It works by directly pointing the nozzel onto the bikes chain or onto a rag and then the chain itself, either way after applying and allowing a bit of time for the chemical process to undergo its cleaning regime the dirt can then be wiped clean off with a clean rag, leaving the chain more than ready for a nice new lick of chain lube and any other maintenance that may be required.
For its price the cleaner is considerably strong and makes removing the grime and dirt a very simple procedure to carry out, making life much simpler in that respect. The finished article obviously depends on the user and how anal you want to be about the cleaning, but generally the solution offers a good solid clean for scrubbing with an old toothbrush or a rub down to take off the degreaser combines with all the excess dirt and grime.
The degreaser can be used on both types of chain ring o and x, so there will be no problems with having to find the correct type of solution. Which is an advantage in itself without having to read all the fine print on the cannister.
I have been using this lube ever since and really does just as good of a job as any of the more expensive brands available.
Only one point would be that it runs out pretty quickly, but dont be put off as at £4 a pop you could quite simply buy another, but find that despite not lasting as long as other brands, the cannister is still value for money and doesnt offer a false economy.
Cheap and very cheerful
excellent - Advantages: powerful degreaser, very easy to use, 'o' and 'x' ring safe - Disadvantages: fast spraying can so you use it fairly quickly, but it's only £3.95 so not much of a problem!
