I particularly like the comment from the "Bicycle mechanic" at Halfords who "should know a thing or two about bikes". Apparently if you get corrosion in your bottom bracket it will wreck the whole bike! :shock: No wonder Halfords sell so many bikes, customer comes into the shop with a worn BB and leaves with a new bike! :shock: :lol:

I like the way he cleans the rotors and drivetrain with the same brush. I wonder what he uses to clean brake pads.... :lol:

This is the most helpful article I've ever found on cleaning/greasing chains. Any one know where you can get the solvents, pin and roller greases?
