These wipes are crazy good! I really wasnt expecting much when I started to clean my oily cassette (I used Synergetic). I rolled up the wipe into a strip, rough side facing out, and started to 'floss' the cassette. With just one floss, I could already see my cassette's original silver. Within 3 min, the whole cassette was clean enough.
Very easy to clean the oil and grease very easily from my bead-blasted Ti frame.
I've never been this impressed with a cleaning product. Even a dedicated foam spray drivetrain degreaser with a toothbrush isn't this easy.
One thing I dislike is the smell. It has this nauseating citrus-y smell that lingers from the cannister.
I use SILCA Gear Wipes for gentle cleaning on all my classic steel bicycles and accessories.
I completed restoration recently of a nearly 100 year-old floor pump made by the Società Italiana Lavorazione Celluloide ed Affini (S.I.L.C.A). This is an early model #3 floor pump designed for bicycles. My initial step was the gentle removal of a century of accumulated grease and grim using the SILCA Gear Wipes.
