I need some maintenence help
I need to clean the change on my bike. I looked at it the other night and it is just disgusting how much gunk and ick is on it so I went out and bought one of the Parks tool chain cleaner systems.
Now, everything I've read, or watched for a how to on the net either implies or explicitly states that I need to use a repair stand.
Do I have to? I don't have one, I don't have access to one, and I really can't afford to go out and buy one.
I know it's bad to wash the bike up side because water can get into areas it shouldn't, but all I want to do is clean and re-lube the chain. Can I just turn the bike upside down and clean the chain?
