Was looking to get in at entry level to cleaning my bike chain, and this was a low-cost option. I did actually read the directions (don't tell anyone) and was able to clean my bike and my pards in <30 minutes. Will go much easier next time, and I think this unit outperformed others at a much higher price.
I've learned over many years of cycling that keeping your chain clean is probably the single most important aspect of bicycle maintenance.
If you play your chain get dirty and gritty and stay that way, it wears out your front chain rings, the rear sprocket, and can result in a very expensive maintenance issue - if you break your chain, the new chain may not fit the worn sprocket and chain rings, and how you have to replace everything.
This cleaner, and the accompanying brushes, do an excellent job on your chain and sprocket. I like the fact that the fluid reservoir in the cleaner is quite small, enabling you to use a minimal amount of solvent to get the job done.
This tool is really good to embed degreaser on the chain and gears of the bicycle. It does however have some drawbacks as I will explain, but first let's start with the good points. This product does what it is intended to do, it distributes the cleaning agent of choice to the chain and gears of the bike. It is as simple as it looks, just open the top, add degreaser, position in the chain and spin the pedals a few times and you are ready to go. It soaks the chain thoroughly so cleaning becomes much more efficient than using sponges/brushes.
Very useful. It's nice to not have to take the chain off to clean it. I used this chain cleaner plus diluted Simple Green Crystal Industrial formula to clean my bike chain. I am impressed by how much dirt and grime came off by running the chain through this cleaner
At first I thought it was a dinky item. But it seems to be working quite well. I like the hardened plastic in the class that closes the unit. The handle also acts as an excellent way to keep the unit together. The bristles are soft enough to brush your teeth with but get the job done. Unit Wheels and parts are made of plastic and not metal which works fine in that these parts will not rust with the solvents that could be used
