Lube solution for your mucky winter bike

Written by Fiona October 05 2013

I am not a keen bike cleaner. I usually start well with new bikes, giving them a loving wash down after each dirty bike ride. But then I become lazy. The problem is that if you don’t keep bikes clean, especially the components, they stop working as well – and eventually end up needing a major service and overhaul. So, I am delighted to discover a fab new oiler and cleaner for my bike.

DSC_0035_webCreated by a company based close to my home in Scotland, Scottoiler, the Ultimate Bike Solution is a revolutionary cycle lubricant that when sprayed on nicely lubricates the chain, cassette and derailleur. When stationary, the anti-corrosion inhibitors in the micro-emulsion spray also protect the bike  from the environment.

I’d recommend using this Bike Solution, especially in the winter months when there is salt on the roads and if you’re a mountain biker or cyclocross cyclist. I have used the Solution and found it works miracles on mucky bikes. Take a look at this video to see more. Buy from Ultimate Bike Solution for £8.99.
