Clean yer bike on the cheap! Hand pump 7L pressure washer £7.99 @ Screwfix

A bit niche maybe! But just what I need at this time of year! My bike is getting really dirty on the commute, and it's only going to get worse when the gritters come out. You can buy electric versions for £60+ that run on 12v for the trail, but really I'm too tight for that! So I looked for the hand pump versions. Yes you can order them from Amazon and Ebay, tho I haven't seen them at this price with good reviews for a 7L. With a Screwfix on almost every corner now it makes sense to get it there. It gets great reviews, and if it ever does spring a leak, it's really easy to return and exchange!

No I don't have access to a hose.
No, I will never use a pressure washer on my bike!
No, a bucket of soapy water and a sponge is not good enough!

Good for the trails all you MTBers out there, unless you are unlucky enough to ride in clay. Don't reckon you'd get much of that off!

it's for weed spraying, your probably as well off with a bucket and a sponge for bike cleaning

This is a plant sprayer...
You're never going to get the sort of pressure you need to shift muck off your bike with this.
The bucket and sponge will be a better option for the wash then, maybe, rinse with this.

Heat for the price of the sprayer though as it is good

Shifting road salt etc ok , think not going mountain biking down muddy paths .

Haha! I was going to say the reservoir is a bit small on that to wash yer bike! But for spraying fences (and bikes) with paint, going electric is good

This is what you need, been using one out the back of the car for years after hitting the trails , Mugdock Glentress, Mabie etc ebay.co.uk/p/1…34612v pressure washing

^^^^ An old 10l Adblue barrel goes perfectly with this for water storage, does around 4 bikes

Ive ordered one to use with my motorbikes. Make a mix up in one of these of degreaser and spray all over the bike (could use a small spray bottle but this looks more fun).

I accidentally marked as cold instead of heat!

Looks good mate, cheers for the link.

When it is dry spray your bike with RainX and nothing will stick to it again. Obviously dont spray your chain though!

I use one of these on my bike, it’s no jet wash but bloody good at getting the worst of the crap off the bike. Handy if no hose.
