After a ride I don't want to spend all day cleaning my bike. ProGold bike wash takes the time out of cleaning. Spay, scrub and rinse.... done.

Strengths:    Works quickly and cleans grease right off without scrubbing.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
ProGold's products are top notch and this is another fine example proving just that. My drivetrain is always grimy and before this product I would spend so much time trying to clean it perfectly. Now, all I have to do is spray down the bike with water then spray on 'bike wash' all over the drivetrain, bike & wheels. Let it sit a few minutes and then wash it off. Surprisingly, even without any scrubbing, the grease and grime just comes right off the drivetrain & bike.

Strengths:    Simple to use and cuts down the time it typically would take to clean my bikes. Just spray it on let it sit and rinse off. So simple to use.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Another great product from ProGold! I barely have to scrub my drivetrain when using this and it comes out looking new! Just spray it after a quick rinse with a hose and let it sit. After sitting for a few mins just rinse it off. No pressure washer need with this product!

Strengths:    Perfect strength, reduces time & effort, extremely versatile

Weaknesses:    None found.

Bottom Line:   
ProGold's bike wash is easily the best cleaner I've used on my bikes. I am not shy about telling people how much I hate the tedious task of washing my bikes, but thanks to ProGold's bike wash (and other products) I have minimized the time and effort involved with keeping my rides clean and working great.

My typical routine with most bikes is to spray down the entire bike with a garden hose, knocking off any large chunks of mud & dirt. Next, I'll take ProGold bike wash and spray down everything but the wheels (they come later!). If the drivetrain is relatively clean, I'll use a bit of ProGold Degreaser+Wash. If it's really gunked up, I'll use the foaming degreaser and scrub it down, rinsing it off real quick before moving on. Next, I spray down each wheel w/ bike spray, scrubbing them down (wheels & tires) to get them clean. Last, I spray the entire bike off with the garden hose leaving it looking as if it's never touched dirt. This takes 10 minutes tops per bike.

For the showroom finish, I'll hit the frame with bike shine and it's good to go for another day in the dirt. The bike shine also keeps the frame cleaner in-between washes.

Thanks ProGold for making some of the sickest products out there!

Strengths:    Cuts the grime, without being too harsh. Biodegradable as well. Works on fabric too!

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I've been using Pro Gold bike wash for 3 years now. I spray and let sit for a couple minutes then hit with a hose and cloth- and maybe a brush for more stubborn areas. Rinse and done.

Works well on mud/grime spots on jerseys too- use it like a pre-treatment.

Works just as well on my Aluminum cross bike as it does on my carbon mtn bikes.

Strengths:    Great for.cleaning frames, drivetrain, and wheels.
Quickly removes dirt, road grime, grease, and winter salt build up.
Perfect to use pre- and post ride/race
Price.


Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
ProGold Carbon Bike Wash is an excellent for cleaning all of your bikes, whether they are carbon, aluminum, etc. Just remove the wheels. Spray it on a terry cloth towel or old T-shirt. Then begin by wiping the frame. Wipe off the handlebars and shifters. Now the chain and derailleurs. Finally the wheels. A few sprays on the rag will last through the whole bike with no hard scrubbing needed. Rim braking surfaces will shine again. Great cleaner when you need a quick clean, such as the mornings.before a race.

Strengths:    Good price point.
Works great on all bikes and parts.
when used regularly makes cleaning much faster.


Weaknesses:    Can't think of any..

Bottom Line:   
This is my go-to bike wash for all of my bikes, works equally well for Road, MTB or 'Cross bikes, I will usually just spray my bike down with a hose to get all the loose dirt off then spray with the ProGold Bike Wash and let sit for a little while, it really helps to loosen up any caked on dirt and makes cleaning a snap I use it on the whole bike.. frame, drive train, wheels etc.. when used regularly it really makes bike cleaning a breeze. Get a good sponge and a set of brushes to go with it and you are set to tackle any muck the trails can throw at you.

Strengths:    Will clean a bike and drivetrain with little to no scrubbing. Also can be used as a grease stain pre-treater in your laundry as well as a bike shoe cleaner (gets your Mavics back to bright yellow)

Weaknesses:    Not good as a baby shampoo

Bottom Line:   
Try this- all you need is a hose, a brush for your chain, bike wash, and 10 minutes. Hose the chunks of mud off of your bike, then spray it down with bike wash. Brush the bike wash into the drivetrain, then let it sit in the shade for 5 minutes. Hose off well, and BOOM, your bike is pretty damn clean. Of course, if it's really skanky when you start, or if you want it super-showroom clean, you should include some extra brushing and cleaning in all the nooks & crannies.

Favorite bike wash

Bought some Muc Off recently..got suckered by an add in Dirt Rag (those marketing types know their stuff!). It works great! Spray on, wait 5 min, hose off. Bike looks like new. I had tried Performance's house brand bike cleaner and it wasn't nearly as good.Read More »

DIY Bike Wash Rack?

I was walking my dog earlier today, and saw an ingenius idea. There was a guy washing his bike, and the bike was being held up by a DIY PVC rack. The rack was very basic; it had a base and a crossbar with two supports. The bike simply hung by the nose of the seat and sat about a foot off the ground ... Read More »
