- Microfiber rope is highly tear-resistant and it is washable.

- Perfect for cleaning your cassette, front chain rings, jockey wheels, hubs and spindles, brake arms, bottom bracket / crank interface, and more.
- Gear Floss is made of microfiber rope, which works by attracting, removing, and holding grime.
- Microfiber works by capturing dirt, grease and particles inside its star-shaped grooves.
- Microfibers remove grime better than any other material known to man!
- Slide into other hard-to-clean areas like jockey wheels, hubs and spindles, brake arms, bottom brackets /crank interface, etc.
- Scrub the chain with the horseshoe shaped bristles at one end of The Grunge Brush to clean all four sides of the chain.
- Use the long bristles on the other end of the brush to clean components like sprockets, derailleurs, cranksets, brakes and pedals.
- Our new third generation chain cleaner has once again redefined the way bicycle chains are being cleaned, both in shops and at home.
- The set includes 5 different brushes to clean and remove mud, dirt, and road grime from the frame and components of any bike.
- It’s one thing to pull your cassette from the hub, drop your chain at the masterlink, take off your chainrings and really give it the full cleaning it needs every so often, but getting the grit and grime out of the parts while it’s still on your bike is a chore that I don’t like dealing with.
- Mountain bike are made to be rugged and ride dirty, right?
- This definitely makes regular maintenance a much simpler proposition.
- I load one of these guys dripping wet with a degreaser and just go to town on it every 2 or 3 rides.
- Much less of a hassle than trying to get rags/towels into all the places, and they’re reusable.
- Throw the dirties into a zip-loc until you can be bothered to clean them (most likely when you run out of clean ones), clean them out in detergent or degreaser, and they’re still good to go.
- As long as they’re cleaner than your drivetrain then they’ll do a decent job.
- I thought, “What a gimmick”, but what the heck, I’ll include it in my order of some other products I was ordering and see.
- I put my skepticism aside and became a believer in this product.
- Got right into my cassette and, just like flossing your teeth, cleaned out areas I would say more effectively than a brush and better than a rag or shoelace.
- These ropes are thick and I could use one on multiple bikes.
- This item will be part of my cleaning regimen from now on.
- Simply slide back and forth with enough down force to spin the free wheel and repeat.
- This is for cleaning grit between gears and on gear faces.
- This is not for very heavy dirt, as a mountain bike in mud may get, where you’d likely want to first do a preliminary wash down.
- Using it dry I did not have a good time as it tended to stick too easily.
- When cassette stationary, I’ll slide the floss repeatedly back and forth to clean areas of the gears.
- With the slight pulling motion, I can get the cassette to ‘roll’ or index on certain pulls, so that your cleaning various areas around the full 360 degree rotation.
- A single floss will clean the full cassette – provided that you consistently clean between rides and prewash heavy dirt first.
- I also carry one in my bag on rides, in the event I need to clean ‘on the go’.
- I know the instructions say that you can wash and reuse them, but once I’ve gotten them really greasy, the last thing I want to do is handle them some more, so I just discard them.
- These really do help, though–I have the popular thin brush used for cleaning in between the rings but the bristles wouldn’t reach down far enough to reach the grime.
- This can also make the job a whole lot messier, which is partially what it is intended to eliminate.
- I used to use strips of old tee shirts with some degreaser to clean this area, and I may go back to that unless they improve this product.
- Finish Lane needs to rework to make it more functional.
- I used both and these work okay, if you have greasy gears and derailers, some degreaser, a sturdy brush and these will clean things up.
- Since I have converted to dry lube like Finish Line makes, I don’t expect my gears and derailers to get so dirty.
- The floss is washable and since you get 20, I think I have a life-time supply.
- I found it a little tight in an 11 gear cassette, and found that using this pulling downward as opposed to up worked a little better.
- A good soaking of the cassette with a cleaning agent prior to use certainly helps as well as rinsing and then re-applying the cleaner makes a sparkling cassette.
- As with any other maintenance product this is best used in combination with other tools and likely would not satisfy if this were the only cleaning method one was going to use.
- If you don’t pull on it, it will catch on the cassette teeth and fray.
- I didn’t expect much from this product but found this was so helpful.
