Product Reviews:

TF2 Plus Dry Lubricant with Teflon® (125ml)

The lube is much thinner than the performance lube, but goes on well,
 and adheres to the links and the rollers well.

 Once on and settled a quick wipe, and the chain is as smooth as I would 
expect from performance lube, but perfect for our current dry weather.

Dirtwash Chain Cleaning Machine

I have been using the Weldtite chain degreaser for over a season, at events from Bike Radar, to Mountain Mayhem. The machine is very easy to use, and with a little practice, easy to fit.

Dirtwash Bike Cleaner (25ltr)

I have used Dirtwash extensively for the last 6 months, prior to becoming one of your brand ambassadors. I have found that it works well on both road and mountain bikes, giving a fantastic finish and not leaving any smears or stickiness to the parts sprayed. I have found once used and then hosed off, using the silicon polish adds a smooth surface, keeping the bike cleaner for longer. I would strongly recommend Dirtwash to anyone, and it is the only cleaner I use when working on my bikes or any demo event.
