A Brush To Clean The Bicycle Drive
A brush to clean the bicycle drive.
Finish Line Grunge Brush Chain: Gear and Chain Cleaning Tool
- Scrub the chain with the compact bristles of The Grunge Brush to clean all four sides of a chain.
- Use the long bristled end to clean other components like sprockets, derailleurs, crankset, brakes and pedals.
- Regular component cleaning prevents premature wear and tear on chain and sprockets, eliminates chain skipping caused by dirt and grunge, and assures smooth operation of drive train and brakes.
- Thanks to its smart design, this brush offers everything you need to get into the tough-to-reach parts of your drivetrain and chain for a thorough scrub.
- Use the long bristled end to reach in and clean sprockets, derailleurs, crankset, brakes, and pedals.
- The Grunge Brush’s heavy-duty, stiff bristles will clean deeply for a long time.
- The bristle blocks on the chain cleaner are removable for easy cleaning.
- Regular component cleaning and maintenance helps prevents premature wear and tear on your bike’s chain and sprockets.
- Keeping your drivetrain clean also eliminates chain skipping caused by dirt and grunge, and assures smooth operation of drive train system and brakes.
- I use it with my chain and it really cleans off all the tough debris.
- Of course, if you want your chain spotless then you have to use a degreaser and other cleaning products.
- The chain always needs to be maintained and once a week it should be thoroughly cleaned.
- This brush is perfect for after rides when you don’t want to get crazy on scrubbing but want all the heavy filth to come off.
- It fits easily on the chain and is easy to hold while cranking the pedals to move the chain.
- It captures 3 sides of the chain and all that is needed is to reposition the device once to capture the last side.
- Plus, if you own an internal cleaner, you can use this for the 3 out of 4 cleanings to save on the different cleaning agents that are needed with it.
- On a rear-stand) Immediately, black grime foamed in the brush bristles.
- It didn’t take much effort before my chain was quite clean.
- The bristles are stiff enough that it was difficult to scrub the brush back and forth on the chain.
- I didn’t have a use for the long bristled end, but the chain side made cleaning easy.
- Who are these brush beast men scrubbing so vigorously they can bend this plastic handle?
- I use this to give a good once over to my chain after riding.
- Most riders tend to either use a chain cleaning tool (which I have), or remove their chains for cleaning.
- I use the chain cleaning tool every other ride so this is a good way to give it an in between cleaning.
- You have to really mess with it to get all of the chainrings but it works fairly well.
- I usually will remove the cogs for a deeper cleaning, but that usually only happens every 5 rides or so.
- I bought the motorcycle version and it works like a charm.
- I’m buying a mountain bike next so I’m keeping the product, and I’m confident it will do a good job as well.
- It’s exactly what I wanted, stiff enough bristles to really dig in and get loose any grit.
- I recommend it for the person who wants their running gear totally cleaned, deep-cleaned.
- I use this in conjunction with the Finish Line Speed Degreaser and the two together have gotten all my bike chains nice and clean.
- The end for the chain does a good job of getting all 3 sides at one time.
- I use the combination of tool and degreaser to deep clean the chain every other month before lubing if back up again.
- I have also used it after a particularly wet and dirty ride on my mountain bike before putting it away.
- Of course I also use a degreaser manufactured by finish line as well.
- I have told most of my friends to buy this when teaching basic maintenance.
- I would recommend that you have at least another stiff brush for caked on mud.
