Title: Reputable bike wash in cape town
Post by: Guido on June 13, 2019, 07:01:25 am
Greeting all,

Does anyone know of a reputable bike wash in the Cape Town area?  I have tried googling, but come up with nothing.

There is a bike wash in Durbanville area that seems to be quite good.

Bike Spit & Polish is Anwar Ishmail, a bit more than a bike wash.
If you need like a showroom condition clean up/detailing etc, he is good.

A car wash that I've used before and does a fairly good job, is the one at Paradys Park in Brackenfell, Mario, can't remember the name of the business though.
About 2 weeks ago he charged me R100, but I don't mind as he does a good job and my bike was still extremely dirty from a Tankwa trip.
I only use him, unless I really have no other choice.
He is always busy, so take your bike and go and have a beer (or 3) at Bok Lounge while you wait.

I have also asked around a year so ago.
 Thruxton gave me the number of guys in Brackenfell somewhere, but the R250 asking price was not worth the quality and effort to get there.

Bike Spit and Polish is more a detailer than just a bike wash. If you want your bike showroom ready, they are the best south of the Orangeriver in my opinion. 

I have used my local carwash a couple of times with satisfactory service, but for R80 is cheap enough to not have to do it myself...

I have noticed that he takes bike washes to a next level

Iíve used Anwar multiple times, including spray work. His work and ethic is absolutely brilliant.
He is based 3km from me so very convenient.

And he is WAY WAY WAY more than a bike wash

And then there is Woodstock Motor Co.!
 Very lekker place to hang out.
They also have the most dedicated and passionate tyre guy I have had the pleasure to deal with recently, operating from their premises, Henk Coetzee.

Barista Coffee, great pik menu and they have a workshop with tools you can rent by the hour.

Can't go wrong with Anwar Spoeg&Plak.
About 600 bucks a pop. But totally worth it.

Thanks for the response guys/gals, just an update, I had my bike cleaned by anwar. Absolutely awesome job. He was rushed as well. We only had 3hrs, as we were running on a pretty tight schedule.

Anwar does my buddy's son's race and road bikes , he refuses to go anywhere else. His work is top notch .
