MCN Clean your chain pop up..

That must be the worse way to clean your chain on the most minging bike ever. I wouldn't dream of using a watering can on my chain.

Dont care what anyone says about damaging your o-rings etc as this has worked extreamley well for me over the last 20 years.....WD40 on a clean cloth clean all the dirt of first, then lube the inside of the chain with chain lube, then clean of any excess lube on the outside of the chain with another clean cloth, result, brand new looking chain and sprocket.

Pop ups

My pop up blocker is obviously doing it's job, as I haven't seen it :biggrin:

However, how would a watering can damage your chain?? It's no different to riding in the rain.

Likewise, I can only imagine all the wonderful stuff I'm missing out on. However a quick search produced this:

They neglected to say other chain cleaners are available but otherwise it looks alright to me.

Why use expensive WD40 as a chain cleaner when paraffin is better?

I usually

use paraffin on a brush, give it a scrub, wipe with a cloth, and lube either with chain lube or engine oil.

Haven't seen the pop-up though.
