Having kept up some regular riding through the winter I've found, appart from the cold, that all the winter road crud is difficult to shift off the gears and chain.
I dont seem to be able to find the time to strip the bike down regularly so does any one have any tips for cleaning the gears and chain insitu?
I see that Fairy Liquid gets a few mentions...I always thought it was a no-no due to a fairly high salt content.
I have found that a normal degreaser solution in a chain bath works best. Then I remove the rear wheel and hold the chain in place with a Molton Blue chain device for final rinsing, drying and relube.
Just my tuppence worth!
