How often do you guys do it and how? Ive been riding my "new" bike for id say maybe a month and a half to two months now and I'm noticing lots of dirt/grim/dust gathering on my chain and surrounding parts. I figure I'll clean it out good tomorrow.
I cleaned my old bike chain a while back by taking it off completely and shaking it up in mineral spirits (As suggested by the MTB maint. guide) and then lubed it up. Worked great. Is that probably my best bet or would just cleaning it while its on the bike suffice? Whats the deal with using water on a bike? Is it cool to clean with water as long as you let it fully dry before storage?
So again, how do you guys clean your chains/how often? Thanks everyone.
