inner city bike cleaning?
I used to follow CFH’s post, albeit not quite as nice a sight…
Now it gets done at the end of the ride using a Nomad pressure washer. Low enough in grunt not to damage seals etc if you’re careful. That or I do it on the road or in the carpark at home, either way same kit. Bottle of muc off, towel and brush all fit in the storage compartment on the Nomad so it’s nice and easy.
I have just cleaned the jizz out of 3 tyres in the bath though…Posted 3 years agojonnoukMember
MucOff, kitchen brush and a pressurised garden sprayer (B&Q) on the path outside my gaff is how I do it. It gets the most off. Technically I have a garden (2x2m) but weird things grew out of it after I washed my bike their and it’s my landladys anyway. Not sure why you need a garage to clean a bike though.Posted 3 years agodoris5000Member
recently moved into a 1-bed flat in the inner-city.
No garden, no garage obviously, no obvious place to clean my bike. What do others do? Lug a bucket of water down to the nearest park? I don’t do a lot of hardcore MTBing these days but it does get quite muddy on the commute (will probably get a lot worse after summer!)Posted 3 years agojaffejofferMember
that pressure wash thing is a myth. there are pressure washers at every trail centre in the country, and at the bottom of lifts abroad… firing hot water at 150bar right tup against the seal aint gonna do it any good obvs, but just give yourself a few inches between the hose nozzle and the bike, the more gruff it has the further back you stand.
blast the clumps off, give it a once over with mucoff then a rinse.Posted 3 years ago
