Bit of a clean for the old girl today. Lots of sticky chain lube on the rear wheel once again. Hate it. Just want to see that shiney gold surface gleaming up at me. Best thing that I have found for getting it off is good old WD40. Spray it on and wipe off immediately with no effort.
In fact I use WD40 on most parts of the bike when cleaning her, apart from on the bodywork, and it is just the business.
