A com­plete bike wash regime you can keep in your pocket

Bikes Etc - - DEPART -

We all know that a post-ride clean should be as much part of our cy­cling rit­ual as stop­ping en route for a cake and a flat white, but if we don’t have the time be­cause we’re late for work, or we’re on tour so don’t have ac­cess to a bucket of hot wa­ter, we don’t al­ways man­age to get round to it. Cranka­li­cious un­der­stand that, and that’s why they came up with th­ese Kwipes, in­di­vid­u­ally wrapped wipes im­preg­nated with 15ml of their ex­cel­lent Pineap­ple Ex­press bike cleaner – enough for one full wash. Think of them as baby wipes for your bike. Hand-made in Bri­tain in small batches, Cranka­li­cious clean­ing prod­ucts are high qual­ity stuff, and the Kwipes do a pretty good job. We’d still rec­om­mend giv­ing your bike a full wash us­ing a bucket of hot wa­ter and brushes when pos­si­ble – it’s more eco-friendly, for one thing – but for those oc­ca­sions when con­ve­nience and time-sav­ing are your top pri­or­i­ties, th­ese are a great lit­tle prod­uct, and we’ll be pack­ing a few in our sad­dle­bag for our next bikepack­ing trip. Kwipes are also avail­able in ‘Like Pneu’ and ‘Gum­chained Rem­edy’ va­ri­eties – which, as you might guess, are for clean­ing your tyres and chain, and are good enough for us to ex­cuse those ‘punny’ names. Just.

CRANKA­LI­CIOUS KWIPES PRICE: £ 15 (box of 20) CON­TACT: cranka­li­
