Types of Cleaners
There are two types of bike cleaners: Degreasers and General Bike Cleaner (All Purpose Bike Cleaners).
- Degreaser is used to clean the drivetrain, and is essential for removing oils, grease and dirt. However, 99 Bikes recommend that you refrain from using degreaser products on cables and bearings as this will reduce their usable life. For a complete drivetrain clean, Brush Kits are extremely useful as they enable hard to reach areas to be cleaned properly. Shop Bike Degreaser and Brush Kits.
- General Bike Cleaners are similar to washing detergent, however, they have been specifically formulated to remove excess oil and grease from the bike frame and components. Shop Bike Cleaning Products, & Solutions.
Bike Grease isn't used for external lubrication of a bike. Instead, its main purpose is to grease and protect sealed and occasionally unsealed (loose ball) bearings such as headsets, bottom brackets and wheels. Grease can also be used on pedals, bottom brackets, threads, bolts, and screws although anti-seize compound is more typically used in these areas. Shop Bike Grease.
Bike Chain Lube
Unlike grease, Bike Lube (also known as Chain Lube) is a liquid applied to your chain to both protect it and enable it to be turned freely. Modern lubes have been engineered to prevent the chain from collecting dirt, and grime, and also tend to be water repellent to ensure they aren’t washed off by rain whilst riding. Lubes are typically used on chains and derailleurs. Shop Bike Lube.
