[Help] Mould on Bike


New Member
Hi all,

I've not been cycling for a while and my road bike has been stored in my cabin. Unfortunately, it's been damp in there and my bike and saddle bag has now got mould growing on it (on the bar tape mainly).

I was wondering what the best method is to clean/get rid of the mould.

Would antibacterial spray work? I have muc-off cleaner also.

A mild bleach solution?
Maybe replace the tape?

Change the bar tape; if it's dirty enough to support mould it needs changing.

Put the saddle bag somewhere dry for a couple of days then wear a dust mask and brush the mould off with a stiff brush.

Keep the bike somewhere dry.
