hey all,

well i finally cleaned and serviced my chain after being due for a while. i read all the reports about people loving the grunge brush, well i went on my to locate one locally and had no such luck, but i stopped by a local cycle gear shop and they had this:

Cycle Gear - STOCKTON TOOL COMPANY: Grime Minister Chain Brush,

which as you see is on sale!! :hurray::hurray:

so i thought i would first spread the news about these the really good deal on these brushes, i have no idea how long they are on sale for but if you are in the market for one and live near a cycle gear it's a great buy! and it worked awesome.

i also wanted to share what i used to clean my chain with and another cycle shop showed this to me:
Cycle Gear - MAXIMA: Clean Up Air-Filter Cleaner and Chain/Sprocket Degreaser,
it worked very well with the brush.

anyways, the chain got super clean, and then i checked it, tightened it, then threw on some dupont teflon chain lube. now i am excited to get on it and see how it feels :thumbup:

Yeah that looks suspiciously like a grunge brush rebrand/copy. Glad it worked for you. I've got one, but it doesn't seem to work all that well for me. Used a toothbrush until recently, and I decided to get lazy and use kerosene soaked rag.

Agreed it appears to be functionally equivalent. Only thing might be the original "Grunge Brush" appears to have a replaceable brush/head if that matters. Of course, on sale, it's half price so you could buy two anyway.

I've been using the "Tirox" system with a brush that actually encircles the chain to get all sides at one time. Bought at Cycle Gear also.

Good Luck.

Rick

People will flame me but

Came back from VT ride and chain had mostly Dirt and Grit.

I hit it with motorwash then rinse then lube

came out nice with little effort

don't know if I hurt it but the grit wasn't doing it any good either

I bought one of those grunge brush copies at Cycle Gear also. I'm not very happy with it. After a few times using it the snap together joint broke and now the brush falls apart every time I use it and the bristles have been falling out faster than my hair, grrrr. It's a cheap copy and works like one, should have known better.

Now I'm on the hunt for a real grunge brush as I like the concept.

I guess I'll have to look out for wear. It seems to be in good shape after just one use. I guess time will tell. I'm sure these aren't meant to last forever but I would image they should work for awhile.

I've had one for about 5 months now it works fine and seems to be holding up just fine.

Wally World aka Wall Bogs aka Wal-Mart has the grunge brush along with the DuPont lubes and cleaners.

Harbor-Freight has a grunge brush knock-off for about 10 bucks.
