It's El Duke season.

Team sponsor "El Duke Degreaser's": founder Nick stopped by our monthly meeting this weekend to share some product and some off-season bike cleaning tips.  Since we're just thawing from our months of icy, salty, this-is-why-they-invented-framesaver hell, we were all happy for the help.  The stuff works.

I don't know if you guys had seen my bike recently, but I have ridden it through some major crap this past winter (which is still not unfortunately over) so it was looking pretty sad. I disassembled it after last night's meeting and began cleaning pretty much everything since I got a bottle of the degreaser.

I used only 1/4 of the bottle, and the stuff is pretty amazing at getting grease off, as well as most crap that gets on the bike after an initial water wipe down. My cassette and chain shine like new. El Duke is awesome.
