Necessary Tools and Supplies for Cleaning Your Bicycle
Below are the basic tools and supplies needed for your weekly and monthly tune-up. None of the items are very expensive. The Chain Cleaner is probably the most expensive and will cost around $25. But the initial investment will pay for itself within the first month or two. Furthermore, the supplies will last a long time. I have had my Chain Cleaner for almost 8 years now and it is still working fine! The Tri-flow and bike grease will also last you years. The remaining supplies can be found in any hardware/grocery/automotive store or around the home!
1) Chain Cleaner - This is a Park Chain Cleaner and can be found in most cycling catalogs.  There are other excellent models on the market as well. It will be the most expensive supply in which you will have to invest but it is well worth the money for it will provide years of service.
2) Degreaser - Get a good degreaser. There are several excellent degreasers on the market. Degreasers can be found at auto parts shops as well as bike shops/catalogs. Get on that is biodegradable.
3) Waterproof Grease - I recommend a good waterproof grease. I have Phil Woods for years. There are others on the market.
4)5mm Hex Wrench - A 5mm Hex should fit the bolts we will be referring to in this maintenance plan.
5)Teflon Spray - A good Teflon spray is necessary and can be found at most bike shops.
6)Plastic container, old rags and a few old toothbrushes
