My Bikes Are Cleaned And Lubed

Bike Cleaning Tools

I’ve been neglecting my bikes over the summer season, and it was starting to show. They were also starting to sound terrible, too. The squeak and grind of my drivetrain was so loud, you could hear me coming from a pretty good distance.

I decide to pull out the bucket and the bike brushes and get to work. I think I managed to strip a few pounds of dirt and grime – or at least it seemed like it. After giving them a good dry, I applied some new lubrication in all the right places. Now, they purr like kittens. It’s amazing how a little TLC can make you feel like you’ve got a new bike.

I need to wash them more often.
