How to Clean Your Bike Like a Pro

I’ve been lazy about cleaning my bike lately. In fact it’s been a while since I’ve given it a thorough cleaning.

Eventually it will need to be done and when that happens I’ll be using these techniques we saw from a professional mechanic at the Grand Prix Cycliste in Quebec City. I loved the use of the paintbrush and cut off water bottle to clean with what I presume to be degreaser. We watched him use this technique while cleaning the entire drivetrain and brakes. (Unfortunately we only caught the tail end of the cleaning on the video.) It seemed fast and very effective, though I doubt mine will get cleaned quite as quickly. I’m not a pro!
