    How do you clean bike parts?

    Hi,
    I've just built a mountain bike from used parts at a bicycle co-op. The bike works, but I can really feel the gunk in the different moving parts. I want to take it apart and clean the parts, but I've never done that and don't know how. Can anyone recommend methods, tools, materials for cleaning these parts?
    Thanks

    Take a deep breath, and ask--What would Sheldon do?

    Check in with the Bicycle Mechanics forum. Also, take a look at Sheldon Brown's website:
