Winter doesn't just present difficult conditions for you to get through, your bike also has to get through them with you and that means a lot of cleaning is needed to prevent premature wear.

While the frame can be cleaned pretty easily, the drivetrain seems to present much more of a challenge with heavier wet chain lube being much more resistant and taking more effort to remove than a dry lube. It also seems to go black much more quickly and form a paste which really needs to be removed.

Review: Muc-Off Drivetrain Cleaner

Our preferred method for winter drivetrain cleaning starts with a strong degreaser like Muc-Off's drivetrain cleaner. This cleaner is strong, but still fully biodegradable, making it friendly to the environment. The handy spray bottle allows you to quickly coat the drivetrain and we leave this to soak for a few minutes while we run a bucket of soapy water. 

Once the cleaner has sat for a few minutes, you can use a brush to scrub at the drivetrain, removing the worst of the grime. A quick rinse will get the drivetrain ready for the final, deep clean.

Review: Muc-Off X-3 Dirty Chain Machine

This is where the X-3 Dirty Chain Machine is really useful. It cleans deep inside the chain links, removing the destructive grime that a normal brush can't get to. This is the best way to get the drivetrain back to perfect cleanliness which is the optimal base on which to put fresh chain lube.

While this might sound like an overkill method, doing a thorough job can increase the time between cleans and improve the service life of your components. 

That said, if you're in a hurry and just can't wait to get inside after a cold wet ride, the X-3 Dirty Chain Machine can be used on a crud-caked chain with just a rinse and re-lube afterwards. That makes for a very quick clean after a nasty ride.

The best thing about this deals is that you're getting a FREE 500ml bottle of Muc-Off Chain Cleaner with your X-3 Dirty Chain Machine. That's a brilliant deal for just £34.99.
