The main brush is fairly good and the wet chain lube gives good coverage, but can be a bit messy. Overall, everything you need.

    Bike cleaner spray bottle needs work

The cleaning fluid works well and has a pretty pleasing scent. The spray bottle, however, is a bit of a let-down — the trigger is short and uncomfortable to use and has a tendency to leak down your arm, which is less than ideal.

The citrus degreaser is superb, breaking down the toughest of grime on cassettes quickly and easily with a great fruity smell — it’s just a shame the can is so small.

The cassette-cleaning brush is OK, but it only works on seven- and nine-speed cassettes; it’s too thick for 10/11-speed bikes.
