UberBrostep says: April 24, 2015 at 7:00 am you just have to screw around with it, if its rusted together you’re pretty much screwed.

I’ve used a citrus degreaser for my chain & only removed 1/2 the gunk, after 5 days of soaking, thanks. turtlefromthenorth says: April 24, 2015 at 8:33 am No, it’s not rubbing alcohol, it more like paint solvent, the kind you clean paint brushes with. It’s cheap and thin enough to dissolve most stuck on dirt, not as expensive as bathing the hole chain in CRC 5-56 or WD-40. These two oils will clean just about everything off the chain, including rust, but cost more. Citrus cleaner will get off oil and dirt but not rust. buggatii12 says: April 24, 2015 at 8:51 am wtf im looking for a video that shows u how to get a knot out of my bike does anyone have one???? 10OzGlove says: April 24, 2015 at 9:51 am Thank you for the compliment!

ProPaleo says: April 24, 2015 at 12:47 pm Funny you use a biodegradable product first than an extremely toxic product last. Don’t let you skin come in contact with the teflon or you could likey experience neuro toxicity. boabie says: April 24, 2015 at 12:47 pm shouldn’t you be cleaning/rinsing the degreaser off before applying fresh lube? i thought degreaser killed the lube too. Deputy276 says: April 24, 2015 at 1:30 pm That chain looks brand new. Title of video should be “How to maintain a NEW chain”. Proxlime says: April 24, 2015 at 2:28 pm get a new one Dasher2k6 says: April 24, 2015 at 2:42 pm @tjj0411 they havent seen rusty till they seen my bike chains turtlefromthenorth says: April 24, 2015 at 2:50 pm Good advice. I restore old bicycled and in very bad cases they have to soak in white spirit for a few days. After that all parts should be loose and moving again. Then further cleaned with a brush, rag and citrus cleaner. Use warm water if necessary. The chain should then be clean enough and penetrating oils like CRC 5-56 and WD40 will lubricate and loosen remains of rust. After that you can use a slightly thicker bicycle oil that doesn’t dry as easily.

You cant “de-grease” rust, you would need a wire brush or something! Buy a new fucking chain!!! Comments for this topic is closed.
