PRO CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE BUCKET
If you weren’t aware that Pro was the accessory arm of Shimano you will be upon opening the Cleaning and Maintenance bucket as it’s loaded with Shimano-branded cans, adding a level of reassurance. The four aerosols include a bike wash, degreaser, polish and chain/cable lube, along with three brushes. Instructions for best use are lacking so we dived straight in with the wash on the dry dirt. It loosened it nicely but needed quick attention before it dried again. We found the wheel and tyre brush had helpfully stiff bristles but the arms were a little flexy, while the sponge/ bristle tool was superb, probably better at cleaning the wheels. Using the brush and degreaser proved an effective way to clean the cassette providing crud wasn’t ingrained.
