Washing your bike with warm soapy water is fine if it’s all you have, but with the development in bike care products, modern bike wash will also add a layer of protection to your bike which you won’t get with soapy water.
In the shop we use the MudBuster MB range of products because not only are they extremely effective at cleaning, but all products in the range are compatible and they allow you to add extra protection for when the weather really turns.
The MB14 range of bike care products have been designed specifically for motorcycle cleaning and the ROAD BIKE CLEANER is acid and caustic free.
For regular use you just spray on Road Bike Cleaner. Let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse off. That will remove the dirt and leave a small protective barrier on the surface.
Road Bike Cleaner is safe to use on all parts of the bike including plastic, leather, rubber, chrome and metal. Spray on... rinse off, it really can’t get easier than that.
