    Clean Drivetrain

    How did I ever let you get dirty.
    My goodness, I finally ripped out the degreaser and lube after having my CAAD9 for 3 months and never cleaning it.

    But wow, the difference was astronomical afterwards.

    Took me an hour to clean everything though, and my chain is still dirty bah.

    Yeah I bought it and kinda uh, let things go.
    Never really prioritized it.
    I couldn't get that chain completely clean for the life of me.

    I do mine about every 2 weeks or so. Is pretty quick and easy when done often. I swa, a Sunday in Hell and saw a mechanic using a paint brush and some degreaser\oil to clean the drive train. That's what I now do, and it's quick and easy as.
