Ok so I was cleaning my chain and I was wondering a few things.

1. Since the chain cleaning tools don't work properly on a Single Speed how is everyone else cleaning their chain.

2. Since you have less parts for the chain to move around how often is everyone cleaning their chain.

Just curious....

not dirty!

I lubricate every other ride with Pedro's. The chain stays clean, maybe something to do with it never reverse bending around a derailleur and staying higher off the ground. If it does need cleaning I'll unsnap the PowerLink for off the bike cleaning.

1. The old fashioned way... a rag.
2. When filthy dirty... depends on frequency/duration of riding and conditions.

I use White Lightening wax based lube, so I don't need to clean the chain very often. When I do, I take it off the bike and use some citrus degreaser in a water bottle. Drop the chain in, shake, soak, repeat a couple of times. Rinse w/ water, let dry, relube.

Care to send a poor boy like me a tester

Pedro's said:
the Pedro's Chain Machine Kit will work on Singlespeeds. The rotating arm works on bikes with and without a derail.
You know that sounds like a really cool tool and boy could I really pimp one for you but you know what.... That green stuff in my pocket is mold not money... :(

Care to help a poor soul out and front me a tester for a very long time? :D
