Anyone have any suggestions as to a neatly packaged all inclusive bike cleaning kit ? got a Birthday coming up and dont really need much but i hate buying cleaning stuff so thought it would make me an ideal present, looking for something like this i guess:

Pedro's mini pit kit

but open to suggestions for something a bit more fancy, if anyone knows of anything....

(i currently occasionally shoot the hose at my bike, if its dried on dirt i may dig out an old brush.... :thumbdown: )

P.S i don't want to open the can of worms about washing up liquid containing salt and that its bad for your health or something, just want a posh bit of kit to stick in the garage in the hope it encourages me to clean up a bit more...

Also this gear to keep your helmet fresh, its very good and saves knackering the pads putting them in the washing machine all the time

L - R
Asda Frame brush £3
Wheel brush 99p from yep 99p shop
Crank brush 99p shop
Cassette brush 99p
Bike cleaner from 99p shop does the job


Also use Juice lubes
Can of Fork Juice £8
Chain Juice Wet £6 - I don't rate this lube make chain all black and crap sticks to chain

I use the muc-off bike cleaner, but found they now do a concentrated version you can mix up, it's rather handy though as it doubles up as a degreaser when not watered down.

Muck off as Mooh suggested is brilliant for lazy cleaning. Just spray and wash :) Alternative is Fenwicks FS1 much cheaper tenner for 11 litres once diluted from evanscycles.

Hi all,
I must admit .I think I am like sharpes rifles (preacher -oil and brown paper ) -My bike is clean but not the holder.......
My boots need cleaning or throughing away as the wwinter bog water has really made them personnel .......
Looks like a visit to the works stores for a new pair.
Pads on the helmets are smelly best wash them (Thanks for the reminder.)
as for the clothes must have a look at the 2011 fashion clothes so I can get more up to date.
As for the bikes a full time job cleaning them but not as much time as I spend riding them.
have fun .
Bob
