This site is really growing (up to 340 members now)!
I don't want to spam this site, but want to do some shameless self-promotion.
It was chilly and damp this morning. As the weather gets cooler, wetter and grimier dirt and salt are going to start to stick to every part of your bike whether you're riding fixed, singlespeed, gears, fenders or no fenders.
I make a biodegradeable, non-toxic degreaser locally (in Chicago) that is very useful for cleaning up your bike. It will penetrate your the nooks in your chain, and will clean out any grease and grit in any parts on your bike. It rinses clean with water and doesn't leave any residue. Simple Green and the stuff at Performance will clean your parts okay, but really aren't as effective as my degreaser. It will also help remove sticky stuff like the residue left over from stickers, and will clean engine blocks and printing presses.
Right now, I'm sponsoring the Half Acre Cycling Team and my product can be found in Rapid Transit, Smart Bike Parts and Yojimbos Garage.

I'll be at some of the local CX races this season with some sample bottles of my product. Please come check out my site and stop and say hi if you see me. Thanks for your interest!
