Clean, Lubed and Luscious
Cycling can be a messy business, but that’s no reason not to clean up after yourself. Dirt and grime wears down the components of your bike and altogether makes for a less enjoyable ride, so investing in some sensible cleaning gear will pay off in the short and long term. Below we present our favourite bicycle cleaning products and a couple of handy videos to guide you on your squeaky-clean journey.
How to clean your bike
Muc-Off Cycle Cleaner from £8.50
The go-to bike cleaner since the 1990s.
How to clean your bike chain and drive train
Fenwick’s Foaming Degreaser £8.09 (RRP £8.99)
Thanks to its rich shaving foam texture, this degreaser doesn’t drip off the section of the bike you’re cleaning – the chain, the chainset, the wheels or whatever. This makes Fenwick’s Foaming Degreaser more effective and probably more economical to use than liquid cleaners.
Fenwick’s Wet Weather Chain Lube £6.29 (RRP £6.99)
This synthetic lube is optimised for UK all-weather conditions.
Fenwick’s Beaded Hand Cleaner £5.39 (RRP £5.99)
At the end of the bike cleaning session, Fenwick’s HC-1 removes the toughest grease and grime whilst being kind to your hands.
