Park Tool Chain Brite removes the toughest grease and grime buildup from chains and components and leaves a light, protective silicone shield. Although Chain Brite is a powerful cleaner, it will not harm alloy, plastic, or painted parts. Regular use of Chain Brite (along with regular use of a quality chain lubricant) will reduce gear system wear and friction and promote smoother, quicker shifting. A handy flip-top lid on the 16 oz. (474ml) bottle makes spill free pouring easy.

no better choice

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Ive been using this degreaser for a few years now. Ive tried other brands too but always come back to this one. It cuts through grease better than any other the other choices Ive tried and also comes with a handy flip top so it pours easily into a chain cleaner. Highly recommended.

I like that item because no need to take out all shimano chain.After put that items, you need to put lube quickly.

Best Chain Cleaner Ever

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Chain Brite by far is the best chain cleaner ever... especially when used with the Park Tools CM-5 chain scrubber. It will get all the dirt and grime off your chain and make it look like new. I also take my cassette off the wheel from time to time and let it sit in a bucket of this stuff. It also comes out like new. There should be no debate about this stuff.

Smells Like Clean!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

More than anything I really like how this stuff smells. Cleans great and gets the grime off my chain.

Buy a lot because this cleaner does not seem to go as far as others.

Cleans lots, makes you 8% faster

Great cleaner, smells good. Cleans like crazy, even my chains that go a loooong time between cleanings. Did you ever notice how a clean and silent drivetrain makes you (feel) a solid 8-10% faster? Also good for cleaning your hands after getting greasy...

best method....

take your chain off the bike for the most thorough cleaning...

Clean like new

This is the best de-greaser I have ever used. Not only does it work phenomenally well, but it has a pleasant odor that doesn't stink up your shop. I've achieved great results by removing the chain from the bike, laying the chain flat inside a 1.5 quart container, and pouring about 3-5 oz of ChainBrite over the top of the chain. I find that a 15-20 minute soak followed by a thorough scrubbing with a nylon brush works best. Alternatively, ParkTool makes a chain scrubbing tool that allows you to clean the chain on the bike. I am sure this works well, but there is nothing quite as effective as soaking and hand scrubbing.

I was able to clean 5 chains with this 16 oz bottle. For the price, it's a great deal considering what your LBS would charge for a chain cleaning. I wasn't able to find that, "handy flip-top lid on the 16 oz. (474ml) bottle..."that the BC product description mentioned. Just a regular screw top lid.

Responded on

Ah! I'd wondered about the flip-top (a very good feature that has been recently missing).

Chain never looked so cleaner!

This thing works wonders, works best with Park Tool Chain cleaner!

Works great, smells good

It's always scary to see all the grime and grit that's been grinding into your drive train. This degreaser works great, even on sad, neglected chains.

The non-chemically scent is a nice addition. Your garage doesn't smell a gas station afterwards.
