When we wash our bikes we must be careful to type of detergent to be used according to the material which they are made.
For example for carbon some detergents are too aggressive and, with the passing of time, likely to ruin and deteriorate the material.
The problem also affects the aluminum because, despite being a hard material, must be considered the most risk sections which are all moving parts and bearings.
The most common mistake is to use too aggressive soap that in the long run dry rubber parts and dissolve the grease in the bearings.
I use the fast action of the Muc-Off NANO TECH BIKE CLEANER.
The cleaner even if it has a degreasing effect is very delicate and is specific to "conserve" the bike.
It is biodegradable, so if not rinsed properly does not oxidize the screws and is not harmful to the planet.
it is also important to use the BIO DRIVETRAIN CLEANER, which removes perfectly all the dirt accumulated on the chain and prepares the transmission to be re-lubricated.
With the beginning of spring I chose the C3 DRY CERAMIC LUBE, perfect for the morning dew and the wet / dry of the day.
Being an intermediate lubricant is then also perfect for a more dense moist.
It 'a ceramic oil: it has the ceramic particles that help to decrease the friction, also it contains boron nitride that can withstand temperatures up to 1200 ° C.
Excellent idea of a UV light that allows you to check whether the product has been applied correctly.
