Omega Pharma-QuickStep mechanic Kenny Latomme shows you how he cleans the OPQS Specialized bicycles after races.
Man! What is that little device that he put on the rear for the chain when he took off the wheel?! And where do I get one!
Yeah I want one too.
Made by Morgan Blue and available from Wiggle
It’s a chain keeper. Fairly readily available, this one is from Morgan Blue and only a few dollars/pounds/euros. Definitely a handy little bit of kit.
Mr Google found this home made jobby: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread.php/886420-Awesome-home-made-Chain-Hanger-for-chain-cleaning-and-transport
Lots of ‘special brushes’ then !!
I bought a set of these and they’re fantastic: http://www.wiggle.co.uk/muc-off-5-cleaning-brush-set/
you can buy all of those brushes at bunnings and kmart in the auto/cleaning section. the long thin one can be replaced with a wheel detailing brush, the rest are variations of different scrubbing brushes (hard and soft bristle). cheap as chips and they work well.
i also use ‘retired’ nail and dishwashing brushes.
a couple of different brushes, some rags and some practice and you can get your bike cleaning under 10mins easily.
SRAM is the sponsor, but looks like Shimano chain and cassette. Looks like a Wipperman(or similar) chain joining link too.
What stand is that!?
The bike was clean to begin with.
I was getting very excited thinking that’s Tom Boonens bike, then the name decal validated for me. Great to see a video of a mechanic, actually working on a big name riders bike.
