A clean road bike really works better, lasts longer and just looks right. Whatever the season, if you ride your bike, you're probably going to get it dirty.
We know all about this – we're cyclists and we're based in Britain after all. So, safe to say that we have some hard earned pro tricks that will help you to get your bicycle clean in good time.
You're going to need some good products – a good degreaser, some bike-specific brushes, a rag, a sponge and a bucket of hot, soapy water and you'll be good to go.
With you bike clean, a water displacer and some good chain lube and you'll be good to go and ready to ride again.
As always, let us know your thoughts on this video and the videos that you'd like to see us make next down in the comments.
Oh, give this one a thumbs up and SHARE it with a mate who has a filthy bike too!
