Found 7th Feb 2014
Halford are selling Muc-off 1 litre bottles for just £5 which is a damn good price for a quality product.

And yes before you start, it's far better than soap and water.

Great price 7.49 in CRC. Thanks!

good shampoo

It's always this price at cmcbikes if there's one near you, or order it online.

If there's a cmc near you they're doing 10 litres for £25 at the minute if you want to stock up or get through a lot of it.

Not that impressed with this stuff. Its not powerful enough to break down really tough dirt/oil. I prefer to use Gunk

...which although not specifically for bikes, is the only thing that would clean up the 25 year old grubby road bike I bought last year. Its now very clean.....
...and no the chain isnt rusty, its meant to be orange.

Or Pedro's green fizz

Any one can confirm muc-off is the best

Aggressive on alloy parts, will stain them or strip anodising at the very least, personally avoid it.

I'm sure this is the stuff they sell at Poundland?

Poundland stuff is the same color as muc off but nowhere near as good as muc off

Buy proper wheel cleaner - Bilberry.

Nice bike, wouldn't touch muc off tbh but good price if that's what you like.

Good cleaner, but does remove polish.
I'm sure Lesuire lakes are doing three 1ltr bottles for £10 at the moment in store. Good price though, heat added

you use a degreaser to clean your bike ?.... what about it getting into bb's and hub bearings etc ? personally i avoid degreaser on all but chain and find muc off very effective

Decent stuff but poor value for money as you have to use such a lot.

Mind you, I did get nine bottles for free from Halfords last week.

tut tut - running a fixed gear with one brake and no spds/straps? not safe imo (and the law's opinion as well I think)

people have no brakes at all and manage, 1 brake will stop you fine!

buy Fenwicks FS1 for about £10 a litre, its a 10:1 concentrate so makes equivalent of 11 litres of muc off spray for £10: or use more concentrated to clean chains etc.

I`ve got fenwicks atm and not that impressed, might try a slightly stronger solution next time I use it.

After buying 1L of FS1 I was so "impressed" I bought a 5Litre tub which has lasted years but gets used on everything- very good at getting rid of bug splats on motorbike fairings! I put a stronger solution in my Park chain cleaner and drivetrain goes from gopping to sparkling. You can make it up pretty strong and it'll still be a fraction of the price of Muc Off.

Allegedly its all re-bottled caravan cleaner with a big mark-up, when my FS1 finally runs out I might give it a go. Never tried the poundworld equivalents to compare, either.

What's wrong with no straps or SPD's ?

you use the fixed drive to brake as well which you can't do without clips/straps... else you should have both brakes as opposed to just front

I'm sure this is the stuff they sell at Poundland?



it isnt, that is a cheap copy, the same way they sell washing up liquid but not fairy liquid
