I use my 14 year old daughter because she has very skinny arms and long fingers! That is one of the few places that I have a real problem getting to and that goes for both sides of the wheel. I use simple green on the wheels only because it rinses off good and does not seem to leave a film on the wheel making it easier to wipe off with little effort.
I am lucky - my wife actually enjoys cleaning the wheels on mine! :roll: My belt guards are removed (upper/lower) and that makes it somewhat easier to gets hands in there ... but still a pain. The rotor tends to beat my hand up while cleaning right side also - like I said I am LUCKY.
I don't run the upper belt guard either but it's still a bitch cleaning the left side of the wheel . What I use is a drinking glass wash sponge deal . It's a round sponge with a handle on it and it is all plastic so it won't scratch the wheel. It get's in those areas you can't get your hand in there to wash . Cheap , and when it wears out , buy a couple more .
Don , my ole lady used to be like that untill I retired , and now I have to keep my bike and her bike clean . I don't mind though because cleaning your bike and fondleing every part of it sometimes you find something loose or broken that the ole lady might think is normal . What the hell , every day is Saturday to us retiree's anyway . Love it.
Ya know, you guys could piss us old working guys off :lol:
"Everyday is Saturday"?????? Man that would suck.........never be able to look forward to the weekend again. No vacations to look forward to. No reason to plan out your schedule.............how much fun can that be???
Just kidding, you guys are living large, that's for sure. I think I'm jealous.......just a little :wink:
