Your bike is your freedom machine. It’s your companion through the good days and the bad and for many of us, it’s a lifeline, so it’s important to take care of it. Of course, you can tinker away with bike maintenance when it suffers a mechanical malady, but to help prevent sudden malfunctions, it’s best to keep your steed clean and primed for every ride and one way to do this is by effective cleaning, after all, don’t you love a shower after a ride?
Like your skin, you can’t just wash in any old thing, you have to be careful of chemicals and that goes for your bike too. A bicycle has many moving parts, lubricated components, anodized bling, carbon, aluminium, steel and blingy paint jobs so not only should you be aware of what you’re washing your bike with, but also the hazardous effects it can have on our environment – or so we think here at TWC.
Juice Lubes are a major player in the realm of bike maintenance and offer a comprehensive collection of products to see that your bike is clean, well-oiled and ready to go. We’ve gotten our hands on their kit and followed their step-by-step instructions on how to clean our muddy MTB.
Juice Lubes Bike Cleaning Collection
Starting off with a dirty bike, we followed the instructions which begin with wetting down the bike and giving it a good spray with the pre-mixed bike cleaner. However, there is also a concentrated product option that allows you to mix your own solution which we think is better value for money.
