What to use to clean your chain (and cogs)?

My mountain bike drive train has accumulated a dirt /oil layer from oiling the chain and then ridding in dirt and muck.

How do I safely clean my chain and gear so I can put a fresh coat of chain oil on?

  • as darkcanuck pointed out, this question is a duplicate of an existing question... more or less. One suggestion: You might consider making this more mountain-bike specific, to differentiate it from the other cleaning question. (That question asks about what to use to get the grease off, but the accepted answer is really a good how-to-clean guide.) – Goodbye Stack Exchange Dec 12 '10 at 23:25
