I agree with this, it's the only thing I've found that works. Fill an old plastic Chinese food box halfway with white spirit, put the chain in and leave it for a bit. The chain comes out looking sparkling. In fact it's probably too clean, need a lot of careful lubeing afterwards.I find White spirit works well, and you can buy it in super markets.
apart from the chain and cassette you shouldn't need it - how much are you getting through?Anyone use any degreasers that aren't your typical expensive cycling brands? I've always for years just bought degreasers from my local bike shop but I'm riding more in winter and wondered if there are any cheaper ways of buying it?
It's not how much I'm using its more how often I'm needing to do it. After a long ride round here my chain is gritty and the rear mech jockey wheels are clogged up. As stated above white spirit or a bulk degreaser that can be used in a tub would be ideal for me. Thanksapart from the chain and cassette you shouldn't need it - how much are you getting through?
The cycling branded ones generally make some effort to make sure they don't damage paint work (much). Park Tool citrus degreaser is my fav!
I saw that the other day and wondered wha it might be like.I currently use Fenwicks products,and whilst the degreaser is pretty good,fast acting, thorough etc.it is quite expensive.Whilst I am loth to scrimp on the upkeep,I thought I might give it a try,as an aside,the Teflon lube seems acceptable enough.Wonder who makes these items?currently using Morgan Blue, but I picked a can of this up and its pretty good
