Here she is . . . all 50 bucks worth. My buddy Scott thought I would like road riding so he hooked me up with this ride last spring. I put 2k+ kms on it last year so I think I got my money's worth.
One of the things that I keep clean on my bikes is the chain, unfortunately the commuter doesn't get its share of this cleaning. Sometimes I use a typical chain cleaner, sometimes I soak the chain in degreaser, then brush it, rinse it and dry it. I don't know about you but one of the things I hate is getting greasy from a dirty chain.
Sometimes it happens on the trail when I am fixing a broken chain . . .
and sometimes it happens at home when I am cleaning up the commuter!
Either way the end result is that I have grease where I don't want it!
No matter how it gets there it can be a real pain in the A$$!!
I recently tried a "Citrus-Powered Degreaser Hand Wipe" or CitraWipe that is made by a company called Zogics. They come in a very portable and convenient little package that can easily fit in a jersey or a pack.
The pictures above were just taken a few minutes ago in the garage and this one is what my hand looks like after a wipe down, pretty sweet huh!?!
Here's a shot of the packaging and the wipe after I beat the crap out of it. . . . or into it as it were.
I'll definitely be carrying this in my hydra-pak this summer but I hope I only have to use it on my hands!!! I better throw one in my seat pack on the road ride also in case I get a flat, it'd be good for cleaning up after any messy incident.
P.S. If you're wonder'n whether or not the grease came off everywhere you'll have to ask the boss! :-o
