Proper Cleaner by Guy Martin

Bike cleaner by Guy Martin!! 70% of the world is water, why ship it?

Just the refills, all you need is a bottle and water..and something that needs cleaning!

This is the 1st product to be released by Proper Cleaner and it’s the workhorse of the range. For cleaning your push bike, motorbike or owt else with wheels (or tracks) on, week in week out, it’s the tool for the job. Just fill your bottle with your own water (750ml), drop in a complete capsule, give it 30 seconds and a shake and it’s reet.

The liquid is fully biodegradable, alkaline based and it’s not tested on Nigel the Dog or his mates. It’s safe to use on all surfaces, including carbon fibre and anodized parts, nor will it affect the performance of your disc brakes. You get 1.5 litres of cleaner, but because we’re not shipping you 1.5 litres liquid it has a smaller carbon footprint than other cleaners on the market and the technology behind it is trick!

Friends_MountZoom

We’re into cycle racing and great lightweight components, stuff that will help you zoom up and down hills.

We deal with some of the world’s best manufacturers, get product, test it, ride it, race it, refine it and race it some more. If it’s good enough we’ll offer it at a great price.

Don’t be misled by our low prices, you’d be paying twice as much in the shops with the traditional distribution chain. We’re bringing it to you pretty direct, cutting out middlemen.

If you need a tin to put soap or potpourri in we don’t do it. Our products are pretty naked. We have minimal packaging, so they’re better value and we get a warm feeling inside doing a little bit for the environment.
