When it comes to cleaning your cycle chain and gears, one thorough method is with an Ultrasonic Cleaner. We recently sold one of our professional machines to a customer who kindly sent us some “before and after” photographs. Cycle cassette cleaning is new to me but I’m sure there are lots of cyclists out there who might find the photos below of great interest.
How to clean your cycle parts
The addition of cleaning suitable solution helps breakdown oil and grease. The cleaning time is around 10 – 15 minutes. The machine used was a 6 Ltr ultrasonic cleaning tank with a digital readout for the cleaning cycle time and the water temperature, however, you might get away with a smaller 3 Ltr machine. You don’t need an all singing & dancing machine with lights and LED readouts. A simple tank with dials on the front will do the job just as well.
