A complete bike wash regime you can keep in your pocket
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.
