Pure Bike Degreaser (Weldtite)

Hi all,
A short review of Pure Bike Degreaser from Weldtite.

It is not secret I am a fan of many of the Weldtite products, those who know me a bit better also know that I try to do my bit to not trash the environment too much either when enjoying my riding, around the home or in general day-to-day life.

So finding a degreaser that is made from natural, renewable and biodegradable substances and actually works well is a good find in my book and I have been using it for a couple of years now.

The Pure Bike Degreaser is not only better for the environment it does do a very good job of cleaning the drive train and anything else that get grotty when riding, cleaning and rebuilding bikes.  I have used it to clean bikes after long wet over night rides, where just about everything ends up stuck to the drive train, after races in mud sticky enough it clogs you rear cassette completely (we have all been there).

A simple wetting down of the drive train (or other affected area) a couple of sprays, let it sit and penetrate for a while, agitate the area with brush and let it sit a little longer then scrub of and wash rinse off.  For really thick muck I find going over it twice seems to get a good clean result.  Obviously using a half decent chain/drive train brush which Weldtite produce.

I can highly recommend this degreaser, also works well on clothes and hands.
