Put on your gloves and let's go !
Follow these steps :
First with Chain Cleaner
Spray the chain cleaner. Its powerful spray allows you to take off all the dirt. Let it work for a few minutes.
Then with the brush
Brush the chain by rotating the rear wheel always in the direction of travel to remove all impurities. Easy peasy!
Between cleaning and greasing, it's time to check the chain tension and adjust it if necessary.
It can be interesting to lube your chain after riding for a little while. The chain is hot and the grease will penetrate the links better.
With the X-Trem Chain
Rotate the rear wheel always in the direction of travel and spray the x-trem chain along the entire length of the chain, insisting on the inside.
Let the grease penetrate for about two hours so that it infiltrates everywhere before going on the road again
