so its real dry here in the deep south, as im sure you all no.
and i love getting my bike dirty.
but we all know a clean bike is a fast bike. or so iv heard.
so my question is how do you all get your rides clean in the middle of a drought?
and what do you use for chain cleaning?

Use the water from your bath tub or washing machine after you are done.
There are no more barriers to cross. All I have in common with the uncontrollable and the insane, the vicious and the evil, all the mayhem I have caused and my utter indifference toward it I have now surpassed. P.B

Light cannot exist without darkness. Each has it purpose. And if there's a purpose to my darkness, maybe it's to bring some balance to the world. Dexter

Add half a cup of Clean Green to 5 litres of beer.




Makes it taste lousy, but it's a hell of a laxative. As for washing the bike, I have no suggestions.  :P

Spray the bike with Prepsol. Use half a bucket of water (yes I know, but it is not a hosepipe) and a lappie to wash/wipe off the dirt, and then a chamois to dry. Prepsol is wonderful, just don't leave it on paint for long.
