    Cleaning up drivetrain

    I have been using Dumond Tech chain lube on my gravel bike and have been happy with its performance thus far. My only problem- what do I use to clean the cassette and chainring with? I have always used White Lightning Clean Streak with good results for other lubes. My drivetrain is not bad but I need something that works. Thanks for any advice.

    I use OMS or citrus based degreaser. Finish line Speed Degreaser works well too.
    Do the math.

    Big dumond tech fan. It builds a polymer layer. WD-40 and a wire brush works great. Off the bike of course. I've never had a problem using traditional degreasers here either.
    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    Mudshine degreaser bike cleaner is a pretty amazing option.
