What better way to celebrate National Bicycle Day than a bike that looks brand new and to reward yourself a bike ride to show off that sparkle and shine…
See below for our cleaning and rust removal guide.
You Will Need:
- A bucket
- Bike wash fluid
- Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate
- Distilled Water
Wipe down the discs or rim brake. Apply the degreaser to the chain and use a brush, make sure to only use one brush per area of the bike to avoid contaminating with filth.
Rinse the bike to remove the majority of built up mud and apply the detergent.
Rinse down the bike and check all of the dirt has been rinsed off, if not, repeat again.
Dry and your all ready to go!
To remove rust, mix Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate and water in a bowl. Combine a 50/50 mixture until it becomes a thick paste.
Apply the paste by dapping or using a sponge on the rust for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, scrub the paste with a scrub pad. As you begin to scrub, you should notice the rust breaking down. However, if this does not happen, add more of the paste to the rust and scrub with added force.
After you have finished scrubbing, leave the paste on for a further 10-15 minutes.
Wipe off the paste with a dry microfibre cloth and ensure the bicycle is stored in a dry area to prevent further rusting.
