There’s nothing we’d rather do less after a mud-covered trail ride or rain-soaked commute than clean our pride and joy but we all know it makes sense – it’ll give your bike its showroom sheen once again and undoubtedly make your parts last longer.
Nature tries its best to ruin your ride, especially at this time of the year, with all the dirt and grime doing its utmost to reduce the lifespan of your drivetrain – luckily in a matter of minutes you can clean, lube and protect your bike ready to take on another gloop-filled mountain bike epic or many more miles of commuting to work.
‘How?’ we hear you cry! Look no further than the Muc-Off range – a collection of cleaners, lubes, brushes and wipes that have been expertly formulated to care for your bike and keep your chain running smoother for longer.
We’ve currently got a buy one, get one free offer on one litre of our Muc-Off Nano Tech Bike Cleaner – this biodegradable spray will cut through grime and protect your bike’s finish in no time. If one litre isn’t enough then take a look at the five litre Muc Off Nano Tech Bike Cleaner.
For hard to reach areas of your frame, drivetrain and other parts then the Muc-Off 5 x Brush Set will get into all those nooks and crannies to remove even the most stubborn muck. Each of the brushes is designed to do a specific job, helping you clean faster and more efficiently.
Something we always use in own workshop are the Muc-Off Dirty Work Wipes – they’re perfect for cleaning your hands after a fettling session, and are strong enough to clean your bike’s parts too.
If you’re in need of Muc-Off’s cleaning products then you’re definitely going to require a decent chain lube – it’ll help for crisper shifting and increasing the longevity of your drivetrain too. Muc Off Wet Lube is designed for long distance riding in wet or muddy conditions, so definitely worth a look. There’s even a handy Wash and Lube kit with the essentials you’ll need to keep your bike running through the winter.
In case you needed any more convincing, Muc-Off is used by some of the world’s top cyclists including Santa Cruz Syndicate riders Steve Peat, Greg Minnaar and Josh Bryceland, trials legend Hans Rey, dirt jumper Sam Pilgrim and our very own Team CRC/Nukeproof downhill team.
