Bicycle Brush - Designed by a rider, for the rider...

ABOUT

Green Oil Bicycle Brush has excellent dirt and grime busting powers to clean your bike by removing the build-up of oil, grease, mud, and grime. Urban riders, as well as mountain bikers, can enjoy the smoother and faster gear transitions and efficient rides.

The Green Oil cycle brush offers excellent grease-busting properties, for deep cleaning of bikes for enhanced efficiency. Plant-based bristles and FSC certified wooden handles offer the benefit of sustainability and comfort. The natural bristles work through tough muddy chains and oily drivetrains without getting clogged up with the grime like plastic bristles.

Green Oil brush uses ergonomically shaped wooden handles without tiring your hands. The extra-long bristles are great for cleaning sprockets and drive chains. The cog spiked handle design helps with clearing out derailleur cogs. The durable and sustainable brush works great for overall bike cleaning including wheel rims, spokes, and cassettes.

Green Oil's eco-friendly formula made completely with natural plant-based bristles and FSC certified wood is free of harmful plastics that litter the surroundings. With its 100% sustainable formula, Green Oil Bicycle Brush does not leave harmful traces in the environment. The ergonomic and powerful Bicycle Brush is proudly made in England.

USAGE TIPS




Uses:

  • Scrubbing your chain and sprocket primarily, but also wheel cleaning, as a claw brush, for hard to reach bits, wheel rims and spoke cleaning.
  • The Bicycle Brush has a burly handle and long bristles -comfortable and with bristles longer than the widest sprocket cog. Its great for cleaning your sprocket set (the cogs on your back wheel), for use as a claw brush to get between the gaps.
  • The bristles can be a bit harsh at first on some paintwork, but do soften once the brush is 'broken in' - after being used to chain scrub and sprocket scrub a few times, the bristles are soft enough for nearly all bike frames, yet still tough for chain and sprocket scrubbing.
  • The unique bristles are plant based, not plastic. They are durable, though some will appear to fall out on first use - these are loose bristles left over from the manufacturing process.
  • The Bicycle Brush also has a 'Cog Spike' on the butt of the handle. Its rounded in one direction, yet edged in the other. Simply hold against the derailleur cog of your stationary bike, run the chain through to spin the cogs (you can turn the cranks back by hand to do this), and watch the mud scrape off!
  • Another advantage is that the bristles don't clog up easily, nor are they designed to wear out quickly in order that we sell more brushes.


How to use your Bicycle Brush

    1. Soak Bicycle Brush bristles in water.
    2. If using for frame cleaning, test on a small area to ensure paint compatibility
    3. After applying Green Clean or Clean Chain degreaser, use to clean your bike and various parts.
    4. Thoroughly rinse the Bicycle Brush
    5. Leave to dry, for a long Bicycle Brush life

We recommend drying out your brush indoors, or in the sun after use to keep it in good conditions, for a long Bicycle Brush life.

GREEN FACTS

  • The bristles used are strong and durable, designed to last a long time, yet plant based and natural.
  • The handle is made from sustainably sourced wood with independent FSC certification.
  • Its a good thing that the Bicycle Brush is not made of plastic, so no oil is used to make the brush. Similarly, the bristles are plant based, so when there is wear and tear, little pieces of plastic aren't going into the environment which don't biodegrade.
  • Even the print on the brush is biodegradable, so theoretically if your brush did ever wear out, you could put it in your compost bin! It is durable though, so a well kept brush should not be heading to the compost bin any time soon!
