We recently received a Race Cleaning kit from Muc-Off. Included in the package are:
1 -1Ltr Muc-Off
1 – 500ml Muc-Off Bike Spray
1 – 35mm Cranked Head brush
1 – Large Microcell sponge
1 – Muc-off Mesh Bag.
Also received (but not part of the Race kit)
1 – pack of Muc-Off Dirty Work Hand & Component Scrubbing wipes
1 – Muc-Off Disc Brake Cleaner.
Back in October I raced in the SC VELO XC Challenge. It was fairly dry until towards the end of the race when rain came down on us. Needless to say I had a very dirty bike. Post race, I used the Muc-Off Race kit. Below are steps in the order of use:
1. Spray Muc-Off all over the bike frame, drive train, wheels, etc…
2. Let the solution sit for 1-2 minutes; then scrub or brush dirty areas…
…then rinse with cold water.
3. (No picture) Apply Muc-Off Bike Spray directly onto your bike. This contains PTFE which is designed to drive water out from areas where it may hold moisture, while leaving a protective film. After giving time for the fluids to disperse, I used a clean cloth/rag to wipe and remove any excess.
On the next race at Mt. SAC, the condition during my race was muddy and wet. The last application I used when I cleaned the bike was Muc-Off Bike Spray. As described, this product contains PTFE which helps prevent dirt adhesion and leaves a protective film. In short Muc-Off Bike Spray will help keep your bike clean (and easier to clean in the future). Other than the inevitable mud glob on the bottom of the down-tube, the rest of the frame, fork, cranks and wheelset stayed clean.
This one time use of Muc-Off has made me an instant believer in the product. Stay tuned as I’ll be putting these products to use in the coming winter months. I have other bikes that are dirty and will have to clean. A full review to follow…
