...the less water you use to clean your bike, the better?

The less water you use to clean your bike, the better.

We recommended using water very sparingly and only when absolutely necessary, taking care not to directly spray pivots and other parts containing bearings. A better way is to knock off excess mud and caked on dirt with a brush then spray a rag with your favorite bike wash and wipe down the frame, cockpit, tires and wheels.

Use a brush to clean dirt and built-up lube off the drivetrain. This method can help reduce overall maintenance, and remember, a clean bike is a happy bike!
