Muc off 3 in 1 essential bike care kit £5 @ Halfords

30
Found 24th Aug 2014
Halfords have reduced the price of this kit so it's now a fiver, considering you pay £6-7 for the spray alone this is a steal.

In the kit you get a litre of the Nano tech bike cleaner, a microcell sponge and a small (50ml) wet lube.

Great deal if you can find one hear you. I can't:(

halfords website down.

good product, works well on m/cycles wheels.

Bear in mind that you can buy 5 litres on amazon for £16 right now.

Pardon?

Good deal but none in stock for delivery and none in stop in my local shops

This stuff is great for cleaning alloys on cars to.

None available anyway so needs to be expired.

Guys I'd recommend Fenwicks FS-1... Only £10 and makes 10 litres of wash that can be sprayed or used from a bucket - 'tis awesome stuff, use it for the motorcycle and the bike. Can also use it neat as a pretty good degreaser... So works out half the price of the 5l muc off essentially!

Or better still - Surfex HD which cleans better than Muc Off even at 10:1 bilthamber.com/cle…-hd
£20 for 5 litres delivered or 50 diluted (can go lower than that too for surface dirt I have found). Bottle of this has lasted me years for cleaning cars, bikes, UPVC on the house. Neat or down to about 4:1 and it removes stuck on chain lube and engine oil. I have used it as pre-wash on t-shirts with car oil or grease spots on them and it got rid of that too.
Its good stuff

it this pack 2 weeks ago at 7 quid. so well worth a fiver. somebody mentioned on that thread, that they have always got 120 ml of wet lube instead of the 50. I also did get 120 even more added value :-)

Well looks like that's the end of Fenwicks for me. Cheers for that pointing out, sounds pretty awesome, so just placed an order!

Any idea if the Surfex is Safe for using on Carbon fibre bikes?

Should be, I have a proper (not silly wrap stuff) carbon bonnet on my Civic and use it as a pre-wash to remove squashed flies and the like. Is the carbon gel/clear coated on your bike frame?

They are usually very good at coming back with answers if you sling them an email, or they have a presence on the Detailing World forums which may help

Yeah its good stuff that, don't think you can go wrong at the price, even diluted right down you can use it as an all purpose cleaner for other uses around the house.
Takes just a little bit of agitation with a brush to get the stubborn stuff out the way.

Anyone looking for a serious degreaser should not use Mucoff.

Mucoff is good for cleaning the frame, crank arms, bars, stem and such.
Use real degreaser like Virosol (Cheap and environmentally friendly) for the components. (Unsure the reaction to Carbon, using it for 3 months now and not had any problems with my Aluminum Frame)

I have previously used Morgan Blue which smelled too chemically, and expensive (£10 for 1L)
I now use Virosol for 10L its around £20 delivered.

I actually used to use Mucoff for the bike, now i use a weak dilution of washing up liquid for the frame. (Not so good as it has bleach, but so much cheaper and easier to source on a shopping trip to Sainbury's etc)

Cheers for that.



And it looks like they do a 10ltr twin pack for £20.99 from the same seller (with the same postage cost as the 5ltr)

Plenty stock @ halfords Epsom- Surrey

Thanks for your reply. My frame is partially exposed carbon and the rest coated. I've sent them an e.mail so hopefully will be able to find out for sure one way or another.

For anyone who is interested, I have had a reply from the suppliers of Surfex and they say that it is safe to use it on carbon fibre.

None in Doncaster, Rotherham or Barnsley

Water leaves some stuff behind and looks like you actually use your bike which I doubt any of you do.
