Bike Cleaner(Simple Green Bike?)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Anyone ever use Simple Green Bike Cleaner & Degreaser? I'm a huge fan of the regular Simple Green product for cleaning gunk around the house and I'm thinking of giving the Bike version a shot. They say the following:

Simple Green Bike Cleaner & Degreaser is a non-corrosive formula that cuts through caked-on mud, dirt, grease, grime, and other road and trail soils. It's safe for use on all bike parts including metal, rubber, carbon fiber, plastic, painted surfaces, chains and derailleurs.

I use regular simple green diluted in water for general wash.  Zep orange degreaser full strength for the drivetrain.  Either while washing, or when I remove it and put it in my ultrasonic cleaner (I highly recommend this toy).  I follow with Pedro's spray that makes it shiny and slick.  I forget what it's called.

I used regular SG on my sport bike a while back but so many people have said it hastens aluminum corrosion(my swingarm, wheels, rearsets, etc) so I stopped using it. I never noticed any issues after using it for about a year but I'm also a nazi about thoroughly rinsing. It's my baby though so I stopped using it.

I've used SG for years

oh, and I have another household product that I've used on street MC, Road Race MC, dirtbikes, MTB, leathers, etc. for decades

But that's a secret

I use car wash soap that DOESN'T have wax in it. I use regular Simple green to clean all the really nasty stuff like drivetrain, wheels and tires along with pedals.
