I just cleaned my mountain bike with pure undiluted simple green. After 5 months of hard riding with no more cleaning than a simple hose-down, I figured it was about time. it worked like a charm. rinsed at the end with hot water, toweled dry, then lubed it up with some Pedros.

its amazing what a difference a cleaning will do. it's like going your whole life without knowing that you need glasses, and then finally putting them on for the first time. i didn't see any 'major' dirt in my cogs or anything, so i figured i was good. shifts so much better now after being cleaned.
