To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I like all the items except for the bicycle chain cleaner. It seems to be cheaply made in that the internal parts fell out when I first opened it. It worked when I put it back together but I would probably buy one from "park tools".
The whole reason I bought this product was for the chain cleaner. It is hard to open and use. Once I got it setup the cleaning liquid kept spilling over. I ran it a couple times and when I was done, the cleaning liquid that was left was clean. It should of been dirty from the chain. It has a really poor design. The cleaning liquid barely touches the bottom of the chain. The liquid spills all over the place. The chain should be submerge in the cleaning liquid as you turn it. Save the hassle of returning it.
Terrible, I mostly bought this kit for the chain cleaning gadget. It is completely useless. It makes more mess than cleaning the chain manually and it doesn’t get the chain clean. So I made a huge mess with it spattering greasy degreaser everywhere and didn’t even have a clean chain after. The rest of the products are fine cleaning instruments, but also easy to come by as well.
I had a few bikes sitting in my garage that desperately needed some clean-up. I saw this kit and, despite the so-so reviews, thought I'd give it a try. Overall, this product is truly a 3 star set. Its fine. I cleaned three bikes--including the chains--with this set and the kit performed without substantial issue.
The chain cleaner is poorly crafted but if you are patient it won't break. There are, of course, no directions so you'll want to try setting it up without attaching it to the chain first.
The brushes are a bit better. I was able to use them to get at various parts of the bike and really free them of dust and other gunk. I'm not sure how this would handle mud on a mountain bike (I'd spend more to keep an expensive bike clean) but for light path use and general dust and grime this set is fine.
This set isn't fantastic but its not hot garbage either. Comfortably mediocre.
It did not fit on my chain to clean it and even if I got it on it keep coming off so it was just easier in the end to clean my chain manually by scrubbing it with a toothbrush. the chain cleaner brushes keep falling off and apart it was so frustrating to keep trying to put it on my chain.
I bought this kit because of the price and because I wanted a dedicated bike cleaning kit.
It works. There's really not much else to say. Every brush is just as well made as the stuff you can get from the auto parts store or from a boutique brand. The wash mitt is soft. The tire brush has just enough flex to allow you to squeeze it around the tire with your hand. All the finesse and detail brushes are a nice touch too.
The chain cleaner works phenomenally. This is probably my most used piece of this kit. It hammers dirt and muck off of the chain.
