Chain Degreaser Machine (Peter Mccarthy)
What you get for your money: the chain degreaser machine and a 75 ml bottle of Dirtwash citrus degreaser.
I must admit I was a bit sceptical on chain degreaser machines as I had heard that they strip the good oils out of the chain but this is not the case! There are a number of chain degreaser machines out there and I have had no desire to buy one, but I am extremely pleased with the features on this one.
The 'hook' arm pivots sitting round the back of your rear mech, holding the machine freeing your hands. The reservoir at the top has a little plunger to control application. This means that you can let all of the degreaser out giving it a good thorough clean, or have a drip control when needed.
It did a fantastic job of making my chain look like new, even making a 2 year old chain look brill and using a thick chain lube( I.E. TF2 Performance Lubricant with Teflon) I knew my chain was protected!
Also filling the reservoir with water I was able to remove all the degreaser! I think this is an important bit of kit to keep your ride going and maximise the life of your parts!
