Finish Line Super Bike Wash 1L Bottle
Easy & Fast Clean Up! Super Bike Wash will quickly clean dirt, clay, road grime and chain soils off your bike with little to no scrubbing. Five different cleaning agents work together to create a high speed cleaning system.
Two different rust and oxidation inhibitors protect metal surfaces and prevent flash rusting. Super Bike Wash is a complex bio-cleaning compound. It is not a soap or detergent and it does not contain chlorinated solvents, phosphates, benzenes, or napthas, which can damage bicycle components and/or the environment. Safe for all surfaces of a bike. Great for ATV's, motocross, boats, and more!
...but it smells so good! It smells like fake watermelon. It cleans the bike well, though, not any better than some good soapy water. That smell, though...
This is the only bike wash stuff I've used on my steel bikes for many years because it contains rust (for steel) and anti oxidation (for aluminium) inhibitors that other such products do not use. It doesn't streak or leave any kind of residue behind. I've cleaned my rims with it and never had an issue with the rim brakes from stopping the bike, it's not greasy or waxy at all so not sure why one reviewer said he had a hard time stopping using disk brakes. Simply spray the stuff on liberally, especially on tough dirt areas, and it begins to loosen grime while you watch, and then rinse off with water using a gentle spray. The wash is not a detergent so it doesn't attract dirt, you can use it to wash bar tape, saddles, and tires too. This is great stuff, the only con I have about it is it seems a bit expensive to wash maybe 3 bikes with it before it runs out, I think $5 would more than enough for a bottle considering you can get concentrated car wash like Meguiars Gold Class Wash that will wash 30 cars for $10!
Works well at a good price. A clean bike is a happy bike.
I have used 5+ bottles of this cleaner and love it. Shines and protects the frame and components. I use it everywhere on the bike. Be careful to not get it on your disc brakes & rotors. It will stop them from squeaking but you will have a hard time stopping too.
Easy to use a different doesn't cause rust or eat the paint
Apart from staining rags pink, this stuff works pretty great! Easy on the paint unlike simple green, and gets most stuff off with minimal scrubbing. Smells nice too! The bottle goes quickly though.
Being able to wash a bike and put it up wet is a major plus. No rust on the chain from doing this. The lubrication in the wash also serves to silence any creaks that might pop up. Washes really well too. I always use this to wash the bikes now.
If you are like me I clean my bike after every ride. Spray on wipe off or rinse off, leaves your bike clean with out leaving a coating.
