Breaks Easily, Gave Up After Third One
- I've put it through the wringer
This chain cleaner works great, it does a fantastic job cleaning a chain, and uses very little chain cleaning fluid compared with other cleaners. The problem is that it’s very poorly designed and built. The two black “eyes” that keep it closed are on two thin plastic strips, which break off after a few uses. Once they break it’s impossible to keep this cleaner closed, making it a pain to use. I reached out to Pedro’s, which offers a lifetime warranty, and they replaced the cleaner, twice, but I gave up after the third one broke, with the same parts snapping off, the two black tabs that keep it closed. I switched to the Park Tool chain cleaner, which locks much more securely, and does a decent job cleaning the chain. Maybe one day Pedro’s will redesign their cleaner so it doesn’t fail, but for now I’m sticking with the much more robust Park Tool cleaner.

Chain Pig rocks
- I've put it through the wringer
I love tools like this...easy to use and, paired with a good degreaser, keeps the chain nice a clean when you're too busy to completely remove it for a full tear down. The best thing you can do is clean your whip...parts cost money and this is an easy this to use to maintain the drivetrain.

Money well spent
- I've used it several times
Super simple to use and gets your chain looking brand new in just a couple minutes. Definitely worth it as it will save you both time and money maintaining the other parts on your drivetrain.

Better than I expected!
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I picked up the Pig Pen drive train cleaner expecting to need to spend a lot of extra time with a separate scrub brush to get everything shiny, because that’s what I always had to do with my old Park Chain cleaner. I couldn’t believe how quickly and thoroughly the cleaner, with the Pedro’s Pig Juice worked. Sparkling clean in less time.

What happens if you don't have a derailleur, i.e., single speed or fixed gear? Can the cleaner be used easily without the tail?

Hey Charles - From the Pedros site: The Chain Pig can be used on single-speed setups but may require some modified setup and usage techniques based on the lack of derailleur, chain position relative to the frame, and chain dimensions. For the derailleur hook and chain position, you may be able to hook the derailleur hook around the axle next to the rear cog. When trying this, make sure the Chain Pig body isn’t contacting the frame and being pushed out of alignment. Alternatively, the best solution is to remove the derailleur hook and hold the Chain Pig in place with your hand. The next consideration is the size of your chain. Since single speed chains tend to be wider than multi-speed chains, you may find the Chain Pig runs with some extra resistance. The openings on Chain Pig body are 10mm wide and should allow most chains to pass through. The sponge may also have some issue with wider chains but can easily be removed if needed. https://pedros.com/products/clean-and-lube/clean-andlube-tools-and-kits/chain-pig-ii/
