Another tip for you

Greasy oily mucky parts need cleaning ie Mechs, chains, etc. Wait till wifey goes out then whack them in the dishwasher i guarantee you'll be impressed. used to do this all the time with my car bits 8)

Reckon tyres would get cleaned in the dishwasher/washing machine?

Always in the house with a few kool toons on the stereo, unless it's Sunny, then the front yard. Just put a Newspaper down(No wife to report to these days) and waggle those allen keys!!

Jez, I cleaned up a utterly filthy Tioga Psycho II with Vanish oxy action powder. I scoop in a sink of the hottest water my tap would produce and stuck the shelf from the oven on it to keep it under :twisted: .

1/2 an hour later and was amazed to see that the tyre was almost new looking (though it has bleached off the Tioga logo) but the oven shelf was all sparkly too!

Result! :D
