HOW TO CLEAN A BIKE CHAIN
What You Need
The bicycle chain is the key component in transferring the energy of your pedaling to the wheels of your bike. A poorly maintained bike chain will make it harder for you to pedal, which will ultimately make your ride more strenuous. Caked-on dirt and road grime will grind away at the metal links and cause the most chain wear.
A clean chain will help protect it from rust, and go a long way toward making pedaling and shifting more efficient. Cleaning a road bike monthly is advised, while a mountain bike will require more frequent upkeep. The more often you use your bike, the more often it will need to be cleaned. Though it may seem tedious to give your bike chain regular TLC, cleaning and lubing the chain should always be a part of the bike cleaning process.
Simple Green Bike Cleaner & Degreaser breaks down dirt, grease and grime while being non-corrosive to delicate parts and paint. The foaming formula sticks to vertical and hard-to-reach areas and can be used on metal, rubber, plastic, painted surfaces and delicate components, meaning you can use one product to clean your entire bike.
