- I've put it through the wringer
This stuff is the bomb. I was thoroughly impressed with how well it cut through the the old grease and grime on my chain and cassette. The first time I used this stuff, I took my cassette, chain and chainring off and really got after it with making sure that they were clean. This cleaner did the job super well and made it super easy to get that old grease off of those components. Now I will use it once every few rides, which has kept my drivetrain consistently smooth and clean. I can't recommend this stuff enough, its done better than most cleaners I've used. It's eco friendly since it comes in the concentrate which is a huge plus as well!

Clean Is Fast
- I've used it several times
After giving Hardcore's Chain & Gear Cleaner Kit a try I believe it is important to note two things. First, this stuff is extremely effective at destroying the grim in your drivetrain. Nothing is more infuriating to me than a clunky ride and I found this formula to work well at preventing this. Secondly, It is super easy to use and it is a bit more environmentally friendly when you need a refill. I am a big fan of purchasing a 6oz bottle over a different large container each and every time. Big ups to this brand for taking this into account.

Great and Easy cleaner
- I've put it through the wringer
This is an excellent chain and cassette cleaner with the spray bottle. I mixed the solution as recommended on the bottle; no need to make it stronger. And it cleans the chain and cassette really well. I spray the chain and cassette and immediately run a rag over the chain. Then I use room temperature water in a spray bottle to rinse it off. No brushes needed! Once dry I use the chain butter (HDC0007). Apply the butter liberally as per the instructions. Let it sit for about an hour or more; wipe it down with another rag; and am good to go. I've used the Pedros in the past for chain/cassette cleaner and have always had to use brushes. This gets the drivetrain clean without needing brushes. Living near Steamboat Springs, CO this cleaner has its work cut out for it since I'm mostly on our gravel roads and the drivetrain can get caked with gravel dust very easily. This cleaner works amazingly and I see no need to shop for anything else.

Bike Companies HATE this SIMPLE Trick!
The cycling industry essentially exists to sell speed. We've all blown holes in our checking account to buy that piece of kit that will make us (feel?) 5 or 10% faster. Don't tell the big wigs at Competitive Cyclist that I told you this, but you can make your bike thousands of dollars faster by...... washing it. I'll be the first to admit that taking care of your machine is a bit of a drag. Mixing the dish soap in the bucket, scrubbing the intricate little nooks and crannies with a toothbrush, and if you have a matte finish... don't even get me started... This stuff solves the problem. It very literally MELTS the junk off your drivetrain. Just spray on, spend half an hour watching your bootleg stream of the Tour in Romanian, scrub off, and ride! In a way, this is probably the fastest $12.95 you'll ever spend.
