Comments about NAPA Heavy Duty Engine Cleaner & Degreaser:
To look this up quickly in your area, the NAPA part # is MAC 6200. A 15 oz. spray can in my area sells for a mere $2.89 + tax. Don't laugh too hard when I tell you what I just used it for... Cleaning the chain & gears on my [Raleigh Detour] bicycle!
A few squirts from this can of **NAPA Heavy Duty Engine Cleaner & Degreaser **and a small bag of shop towels later - the bicycle chain looked almost brand new. You have to remember, this bicycle is now pushing 2,000 miles. Road gunk & residue chain oil builds up over time.
Two things really get under my skin. #1) A bike shop wants about $8.00 to $9.00 for a similar can of cleaner/degreaser. #2) A bike shop also wants to charge about $30 to "professionally" do the same job I just did in under half an hour. Do it yourself and $AVE.
Don't get me wrong...if there's something I feel I can't tackle myself, a bike shop (such as [Big Shark] ) will get my business. But Karl, over at [A&M Cyclery] put this idea in my head. Karl said just to find a good cleaner/degreaser, a bag-o-rags, flip the bike upside down & start cleaning. Personally, I think Karl just doesn't like to get his hands greasy or dirty. I'm not complaining though. The man just saved me a few bucks.
Every bicycle will need routine maintenance. Keeping everything cleaned & well lubricated will help it last a lot longer. Bottom line: This stuff isn't just for automobile engines. It will probably work just about anywhere grease & gunk have built up over time.
My total cost with a small bag of shop towels, this can of **NAPA Heavy Duty Engine Cleaner & Degreaser **and sales tax was only $7.41.
