Muc Off Bio Dry Lube

After testing Muc Off dry lube in dry & very dry conditions, here are the results.

every time I rode with it it gave the same results, I only used it in dry conditions.

but I could not test it for a long time, because I ran out of lube, I have used the lube in the past with the same results, but I did write a review on it until now.

the cassette & chain was far from clean.

The guide pulley collected a lot of gunk.

I recommend you take a look at MTBTelly ‘s chain lube reviews:

There is no point of me mentioning every thing already mentioned in the video below, so watch it( has subtitles)

Muc-Off Bio Wet Lube long-term review

https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/921/42656460054_74e022003f_b.jpg

I have used this lube for several years, with great success, here are my experiences with it.

The muddies & wettest ride of 2017:

Winter:

After few days of riding in freeze-thaw cycle with some deep long rim and shoe deep puddles getting the drivetrain asked in water slush, Crashing in wet snow, I got the chain quite noisy, so this is far worse conditions for a longer time than the Rock n’ Roll Extreme lube.

So the conclusion is Muc-Off offers a better option, for a lower price.

some wet some dry, some muddy spots, this is the result:

from the city centre to Skansehytta from parking.

In hot summer days when the bike stands indoors overnight, the lube gets thicker/ the consistency changes, and the chain does not run as smoothly, and the drive train will be noisier and it will attract more dust, so you need to lube it after each ride or the the next day before the ride.

Verdict:

This lube suits most conditions, for wet summer days to muddy wet rain autumn days, to winter, riding in slush, -11c dry icy. but won’t keep the drive train completely clean, this lube performed ok for every thing I put it trough. will last logner than the dry lube.

There might be other lubes that perform as well or better, but so far Muc Off & Weldtite has my favorite lubes.

Muc Off Bike Mat Long term review

I have used these mats few months to protect the floor, I had it all over the workspace.

most of the wear is where I was standing and doing drivetrain maintenance.

 

here you can see the top layer is peeling off, the mat can’t withstand you walking over it and and moving around in a small area like this, it will be destroyed in few months.

 

 

This picture shows the underside of the mat in the same spot as the picture above, where I was working on the drivetrain.

 

These mats are basically just very thin tarpaulin, cut to size with Muc off branding on them

Verdict:

I can’t recommend these as a long term solution, as they wear out way too fast, I suggest getting some protective floor pads like Seth’s bike hacks did.

Muc Off foam Fresh Review

It leaves your gear smelling fresh,If you apply a lot of of foam,but it won’t do a better job than hand soap.

Dish soap or hand soap can do better:

Does not work as well, as normal hand soap will.

Fast såpeBilderesultat for zalo

I used Lano hand soap to clean it,So far Lano soap & Zalo (Zalo is a quite common dish soap which a lot of people use to clean their bikes, not perfect for drivetrains,which Muc off degreasers do well and getting that brown color off you bike, which the last one Muc-Off Nano Tech Bike Cleaner does a great job with.) has been very good at cleaning all kinds of things out of my hands,apart chain lubes and stuff like this, But for cleaning stuff soaked in sweat it works great.So I had to try it.

With these 2 soaps you can see the helmet the effect of the soap quite fast.

 

with these 2 soaps I managed to clean helmet inserts so there was no dirty water coming out when rising off, which Muc off fresh foam did not, when rising off, there were dirty water after many tries, even after applying the foam and let it soak in and and rub with a sponge, there were still very dirty water when rising off many times.

Most dish soap will do the job,But make sure you don’t use to soaps/cleaners on helmets that can damage the materials.

Muc off fresh foam can clean lenses filled with dirt, but not much else.

Getting the sweat soaked helmet inserts, or adjustment straps clean & completely without a  stink is impossible.

I even Tried to clean my Forest smelling Five ten Freerider shoes, which did not work, the shoes still smelled like forest, even after applying a lot of foam many times with aggressive cleaning with a rag.

Another bad thing about the foam is that it runs out way too fast, but with liquid soap or solid soap, last way longer.

 

Verdict:

I can’t recommend this cleaner,as it does a poor job on cleaning shoes, shoe soles,goggles,helmet inserts. I won’t buy it again.

 

Cleaning tips:

To clean properly clean items like these: shoes, shoe soles,goggles,helmet inserts.

I recommend cleaning them by hand with water and hand soap or dish soap

Using a Washing machine can damage goggle foam,plastic parts on the helmet inserts,as it is a way too brutal method.

The best method to clean shoes,helmet inserts, similar things, is to use water, hand soap or dishwashing soap, and a sponge.

soak the item in water, apply soap, get soap every where with a sponge, let the soap do its job few minutes,then use the sponge clean every thing and the last the is rising the item with water. if you use hard hand soap, you can rub it against the surface you want to clean.
