Do bikes need cleaning?
Some occasional lubing and knock of any accumulated dirt, surely that's good enough?
Build up of dirt and gunk in the chain links will prematurely wear the chain, causing stretch and thus excessive wear of the cassette and cranks.
One of the reasons I clean and rotate between chains every 1000km (which is like every 3 weeks at the moment )
You get that much 5hit on your drive train in 3 weeks?
Come on Para, I saw you drive train on Saturday
I'm too lazy to swap chains every 2 1/2 weeks, what joiners are you using, I didn't think that there were any reuasable 10sp links?
