Hehe, eto din ginagawa ko. It's a dirty job, but for the love of your bike, you gotta do it. Just to add, I use synthetic chamois, even with no soap solution or little soap solution, natatanggal nya ang dumi. I think its the composition of the chamois that just sucks up the dirt.

Thumbs up Re: Share your chain cleaning tips

JOY din gamit ko pang-linis ng chain...

tutal may bike stand, iniipit ko ng sponge (ung pinaglumaan sa kusina madalas gamit ko... sayang ang bago... hehehe) diluted with joy/water, then spin slower, until wala na ung mga dumi...

patuyo, kinabukasan, lagay ng singer oil...

pag-uwi galing ng trail na nuknukan ang pino ng lupa na kumakapit sa chain, repeat ko ulit ang procedure...

nitatamad ako gawin ung procedure na magtunaw ng kandila, soak the chain and let it dry hanging... bukod sa makintab ang chain, matagal bago madumihan... proven na ito, matrabaho la-ang... galing sa SSupremo...

I had already tried this and I agree that it is really quite an effective (not to mention easy) way of cleaning the chain, derailleurs and cogs. However the first time I did this, I could not figure out how to remove the missing link without using a chain tool. Needless to say, I ended up buying another missing link when i reinstalled the chain. The missing link costs about P120 in our LBS in Cebu.

Now I'm still trying to remove the missing link without any tools but I'm somewhat convinced that it takes superhuman strength to undo it. I even tried using a pair of long-nosed pliers but to no avail.

I wish someone could point me in the right direction. I really like to continue to be able to keep my chain squeaky clean in the most cost-effective way possible.

My missing link looked similar to this.

Thank you very much!

Before, I use tooth brush, dishwashing liquid and sponge to clean my bike's chain. Now I use a chain cleaning kit. Super B yung brand. Costs around 500 Pesos. Just run the chain in it and pour some degreaser or Joy dishwashing liquid. Brush is also included to remove grime on the cogs. Rinse with water, let it dry and lube again. Less hassle, quicker and no need to remove the chain.
By the way, here's Super B's website:

@RobertJamesYu,

Sir, bought mine at Arjan Bikeshop, LBS dito sa Angeles City. But I'm sure meron niyan sa mga bikeshops sa Manila. I've seen one pero Pedro's ang brand and a bit more expensive. Sa Bikezilla or All Terra ko ata siya nakita. Sorry sir, pero di ko matandaan

pareho lang tayo ng missing link.. nung first time ko din nahirapan ako until I looked at the link and studied it carefully.

If you look closely at your missing link, you'll notice a slightly tapered or depression near the hole where the pin and the link connected to each other.

the trick: pinched the two plate inwards before removing the link from its pin position.

note: hold the link one pin away from the pin of the missing link when removing it as both pin of the missing link needed to be free to moved it inwards.

hope it helps

Talking Chain cleaning for bike commuter

Hi PMTB pips! I'm just wondering how to properly lubricate my chain. I'm a bike commuter, using pro-gold prolink dry lube, pero pag tumagal, marumi pa rin ang chain ko (my chain is kmc gold 9SL).

I'm commuting almost everyday, 5 days a week, 20km one way. I lubricate every other day. Minsan punas lang then apply lube. Almost every other week ko binabaklas talaga yung chain to clean it thoroughly, sabay na ng bike wash.

Is it normal sa bike commuter na mangitim sa alikabok yung chain and grimes build-up on the drive train. Minsan kasi naiisip ko sadyang marumi lang ang Metro Manila :whistling: hehehe. Or do I need to switch to other brands of lube like Zefal or White Lightning?

1.Clean first your chain with DIESEL FUEL using a toothbrush/paintbrush.
2.Then wash it JOY DISHWASHING LIQUID with water.
3.Dry it with clean cloth.
4.Lubricate your chain with DRY LUBE(any brand available).

Sir, pinupunasan nyo po ba after mag-apply ng dry lube?? Baka yun po yung reason kaya dumidikit yung dust..

Sir Xtreme XC, yes sir pinupunasan ko naman. Minsan nga lang kapag parang wala ng oil, nilalagyan ko na agad ng prolink, wala ng linis-linis. Siguro dun nagbi-build up yung grimes. Mga ilang kms kaya ang kayang itagal usually ng isang lubrication?

When I was new to biking, I was told of a 50/50 way to clean (as well as lubricate) my chain: 1 part of kerosene and 1 part of cooking oil :). Till now, I don't know if that was right, the chain was very greasy and black when we ride. So I switched to brushing it with soapy water or water with some drops of dishwashing liquid then spray it with WD-40 (WD-40 was the 40th mixing attempt of Water Displacement). Later on, I'd drop some Singer machine oil onto the joints

Ayun nadale ko rin! May mali lang siguro sa pagpupunas ko after applying dry lube. Para kasing sobrang nipis kaya konting punas lang ginagawa ko. Last time pinunasan ko talaga ng maigi after lubricating, pati cranks ang pulley, then let it sink in magdamag. Kinabukasan 40kms of Metro Manila "dirt road". After I check my chain this morning, not a speck of dirt! Yahooooo!!!!!!!!!!!

Try ko nga rin obserbahan. Kung 80kms, 2days lang pala itatagal ng isang lubrication. Btw, thanks Sir Obet!
