Strengths:    Hmm...

Weaknesses:    Bristles are too coarse and too long to do anything with on almost all of the brushes. Mostly worthless.

Bottom Line:   
This review is for the bike cleaning brush kit, which includes the toothbrush. I won this kit at a race and thought it was a fairly nice prize. I finally gave it a shot the other day and to my surprise and dismay, none of the brushes really worked all that well. Bristles are too big and long. Even the tire brush failed to work well. The three items I listed above under "similar products used" work much better. Grab a bottle of dishwashing soap and you're set. Don't waste your money on Pedro's brush kit.

Date Reviewed: September 9, 2002

Strengths:    Both ends of the brush are useful. Bristles are tough. Large handle.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
It is a great brush for removing those tough grease build ups. The feel is much more solid than the park gear brush, but it doesnt have the serrated edge for freewheel cleaning. It works well.

Submitted by Mike B a Cross Country Rider from Denver

Date Reviewed: March 31, 2002

Strengths:    Works as advertised. Long enough to avoid chainring injury. It's better than the Park version

Bottom Line:   
What Pedros says about the brush is true. Given the cost and niche use of this brush, I'd recommend it for cleaning the drivetrain of your bike.

Does the toothbrush rule apply to chains?

It was always said (before sonicare, anyway) that two toothbrushes used alternatingly, lasted much, much longer than two used in succession. Does this rule apply to chains? If so, would alternating two chains also extend the life of other drive train parts? The Fisher Tassajara came stock with ... Read More »
