I know there are loads of threads on this, but the search doesn't work so well for me! My plan is to remove the chain (I have quick links) and bathe it in some degreaser + water combo. While this is soaking I will spray degreaser on the cassette and chainrings, leave for a while then rinse off with a low powered hose / by pouring water on it. Then dry chain and cassette etc. put back together and lube.
My main question here is: will the degreaser seep into the hubs / bottom bracket while I leave it? I assume it won't because if it will then it would mean that water could also get there on / after wet rides.
