What do I need for bike care?
Only a few things are considered essential: Cleaner, brush, cloth, drive cleaner and chain oil.
Regular use is more important here than the sheer endless number of possible utensils. But how often is recommended? Some clean their bike after every ride, others twice a year. Others do without any maintenance at all and have it cleaned by others during the annual inspection. Of course, it depends a lot on whether I only go on a tour at the weekend and can plan another 15 minutes for cleaning afterwards, or whether I use the bike five days a week, in the morning and in the evening, for commuting and then only take the time at the weekend to get the bike fit again for the next week. But depending on use, season, weather and road surface, I tend to do a basic cleaning every three to five days riding.
First clean the bike with running water to remove coarse dirt; if in doubt, a watering can will do, but a garden hose is better. High-pressure cleaners are not recommended, unless they can also be operated with low pressure, because the high pressure runs the risk of "washing out" the bearings on the bike. You should start by cleaning the drivetrain with a drivetrain cleaner. So chainring, chain, cassette, rear derailleur, front derailleur, spray everything nicely with the drive cleaner and remove dirt and oil with a brush. Then there are various ways to give the bike a foam bath. A sponge and a bucket of warm water with bike cleaner will do the job, as will applying cleaner directly from the spray bottle to the bike and spreading it with a wet sponge. Let it work for a short time and then rinse it off completely. Finally, rub the bike dry and apply chain oil again. Done.
