Tips: If you bike, this is what you need to know

As we re-start our working lives following the easing of restrictions under the conditional movement control order or CMCO, let’s not forget to care for our health to boost our immune system.

This means eating good, nutritious food and getting in some exercise each week — be it something as simple as walking, jogging or biking — while we continue to practise social distancing as the new norm.

If biking is your exercise of choice, then you’d want to give your old bicycle or bike (or your newly bought one), suitable care to ensure it performs smoothly and efficiently. This is especially important for bike chains to keep them lasting longer, so you don’t have to change them as often.

One easy way to do so — something that will take less than 10 minutes — is to use the WD-40® Bike Chain Cleaner & Degreaser. It is a fast-acting foam solution that clings to surfaces to work in seconds.

It is so good for cleaning stubborn grease and grime from bike chains that athletes and amateurs alike love it.

Here’s a simple step-by-step tutorial on how to make use of the WD-40® Bike Chain Cleaner & Degreaser:

  1. Shake the can well, then take the cap off.
  2. Go to your bike chain and spray from the cassette (cluster) of the bike chain. Spray the solution while you back pedal your bike to get the chain moving, so the foam coats the entire chain.
  3. Once the whole chain is foamed up, put the can down and wait a couple of minutes to let the solution do its work.
  4. Get a rag and hold a section of the chain with it to gently wipe it off as you backpedal. Any residual gunk will just come off on the rag.

The can’s design enables precision spray to send the foam right onto the bike chain. As the foam sinks in, it will drive cleaning agents into the chain links.

Don’t worry if you see excess foam dripping onto other parts of your bike. The solution doesn’t contain any citrus solvents or acids that can damage your bike, so it is safe for all bike finishes or components.

There you have it. It’s that easy to clean and degrease your bike.
