If you’re a triathlete or cyclist – then you likely find bike grease on just about every object you own. And if you’re a runner, then you’ll still find this stuff pretty darn cool.
Back last winter the bike shop dude introduced me to degreaser as a way to clean my bike up. The point of the conversation was primarily around cleaning up some gunk near my gears. So I picked up a bottle for about $5 and used it for that task. And then I squirted a little elsewhere on the bike out of curiosity. Instantly – MAGIC occurred! No matter what I squirted it at – it came off effortlessly with just a single wipe. Dirt, grease, grime, gel packet goo, bugs, small rodents – you name it. And it wasn’t just limited to my bike. Nuh-uh – I sprayed it on my car, a small cooler, my hands, legs, arms, even my wood and tile flooring! Rumor has it that some plastics aren’t too fond of it, but I haven’t personally seen any issues thus far.
Anyway – it’s freaking awesome! Clearly the best part though is that it instantly picks up whatever you want it to with just one wipe.
Check out this quick before/during/after photo sequence with some grease on my wheel. I tried using a rag with simple water first, but no luck. With just one squirt and one wipe – check out the difference.
It works great on the frame too – keeping it all nice and reflective. Look – I can see myself above the reflection of the camera below.
Anyway – I thought I’d share this little magical juice with ya. It’s cheap – $5 – and lasts forever. And it gets the grease off your bike and your hands quickly and easily. You can find any brand at any local bike shop.
