Park Tool Cyclone Chain Scrubber - CM-5 $0.00
The days of scrubbing each individual link of your chain with a toothbrush are gone thanks to the Park Tool Cyclone Chain Scrubber. Rotating brushes and a large solvent reservoir ensure your chain comes out clean enough to eat off of—but we don’t recommend it. The Cyclone even features a new handle for a more controlled clean.
- Sponge material draws solvent from the chain as it exits the Cyclone for mess-free cleaning
- Works with all multi-speed and most single-speed drivetrains
- Dirty solvent is not mixed with clean solvent for an impressive clean

Finally got to use this today and it works great. Takes some practice but once you get the hang of using this thing it should become a regular part of your bicycle upkeep routine.
Some tips I picked up from experience:
Don't use while the chain is on the largest chainring, or the chain will most likely come off.
Don't expect every spec of crud to all come off the first time you use it. Regular use will eventually get the chain looking brand new again and don't be afraid to use an old toothbrush to get the crud out of the derailleur. While the chain is saturated with degreaser, other parts of your drivetrain are much easier to clean.
Using this is not "mess-free" but if you make it step one to washing your bike, it isn't that big a deal.
Good job Park Tools.
easy to use and cleans the chain great
very easy to use. takes a couple times of changing out the degreaser but cleans the chain quickly and easily. Can be messy if you are not careful.

Is a rebuild kit available cuz I broke mine after several years of use? The internal parts exploded after many,many uses.
I used it a lot and it did work very well.
Park tool chain cleaner
This thing is great! I love it!
I use a simple green solution in the PT Cyclone. Easy and efficient. Much easier than removing the chain. Definitely worth the money.
Cleaning you chain any other way is a waste of time
I cherish the days when life wasn't so busy and I could spends hours deep cleaning my chain with a combination of brushes and cleaners. Anymore I look to get the job down quick and that is wear the Park Cyclone excels. This chain cleaner gets the job down quick and easy, but it more that adequate because the internals are replaceable and available and it keeps the job almost completely clean.
It uses about 2oz of fluid per cycle and it may take two washes to get the job down, so I recommend low cost degreasers. My favorite is Simple Green, that chain comes out clean, it's not hard on parts and pant and it environmentally conscious.
With this tool you will have clean, efficient and silent drivetrain like the mechanic in your club ride.

Park Tool Cyclone Chain Scrubber - CM-5
I fill mine with Coleman lantern fuel, which is about $4 for a gallon, and it scrubs my chain clean without putting grease under my fingernails for two days. Much easier than taking your chain off and cleaning it that way - especially for those with Shimano chains that don't use the quick-link. These are certainly worth the $25.
Eating off of my chain
This chain scrubber is super easy to use and gets the job done. Add a little bit of degreaser or soap to really clean the crap out.
