Keeping your bike clean and well-maintained is of the utmost importance if you want it to perform optimally. The good news is that there are several products you can turn to in order to make your life that little bit easier when cleaning your bike. With that in mind, here are our top tips for using our Ultimate Bike Care Kit to ensure that your bike rides like a dream throughout the year. 

What does our kit contain? 

Before we introduce you to how to use our bike care kit, it contains the following: 

  • 1x Bike Clean (1 litre) 
  • 1x Bike Clean Concentrate (500ml) 
  • 1x Bike Wash (250ml) 
  • 1x Drivetrain Degreaser (500ml) 
  • 1x Cermaic Quick Coat (500ml) 
  • 1x Bike Ceramic (15ml)

  • 1x Bike Drying Towel 
  • 1x Bike Microfibre 

Now you know what to expect in the kit, let’s take a look at how to put the items to good use.

Rinse the frame down 

Your first job when cleaning your bike is to rinse the frame down. You can do this with a wash mitt and a bucket or a hose, depending on what you have at your disposal. Just make sure the water you use isn’t too highly pressured, or you could potentially can damage your bike. You can then spray the bike with our Bike Clean product before using the microfibre cloth and detailing brush to give it a thorough clean. Standard washing-up liquid doesn’t work anywhere near as well as purpose bike cleaners, so don’t be tempted to substitute products! 

Use the degreaser 

Our Bike Care Kit contains 500ml of Drivetrain Degreaser, which is the next product you should turn to when you’ve given your bike an initial clean. You should spray the derailleurs and chain with the degreasing agent and give them a good scrub. Some people prefer to do this with the wheel still in the bike, while others take it out. Ultimately, it’s up to you, but make sure you give the chain a thorough clean with the degreaser before moving onto the cassette and chainrings. 

Rinse and dry the frame 

It’s now time to rinse the frame for a second time, removing all cleaners and suds that have accumulated during the cleaning process. Again, if you use a hose for rinsing the frame, make sure the pressure isn’t too high. Once you’ve rinsed the frame, grab the drying towel and go over the entire frame, making sure that you have removed all the dirt and debris in the process. Once dry, apply the Bike Ceramic to provide your frame with the ultimate durability. Last but certainly not least, grab a rag and dry the chain carefully. You can then apply a chain lube to the chain and pivot points on the derailleurs, and your bike should be as good as new!

Durable long-lasting protection

For the Ultimate protection Gtechniq recommend applying Bike Ceramic to the frame. This product has been designed to stop dirt, mud and grime from sticking to the surface making ongoing cleaning and maintenance a breeze. The best part is once applied, provides a dirt and water repellent barrier for up to 2 years!
