Just use a few sheets of kitchen roll to clean it off, or is there some special stuff?
Spray them with WD40 to loosen the stuff up and use a paintbrush to finish off, 2 minutes and they will be as good as new.
Oily rag - best invention ever....
Gently press the pointy bit of something pointy ( a screwdriver would have been easier to say )into the gunge and turn the cranks.
90% of the gunge will fall off..leaving the rest a lot easier to clean..
Go fixed gear and bin the jockey.
But don't go riding with a fast group...
I use an oily rag. It gets mine nice and clean.
on my dads bike, it had bits of grassing running around the jockey wheel, so i had to use a screw driver and break the rubbish on it off, then wiped it clean.
Not sure what was on the jockey wheel, but it didnt look nice.
Not your wife's though.
If it's really bad you can always unscrew the jockey wheel, take 'em out and have em a good clean, lube.
dont for get to but back the wheels in where you got them as they are not the same. do not lube them they are meant to be dry.
