Comments about Park Tool CM-5 Cyclone Chain Scrubber:

Must have when cleaning chain. Why I never bought one sooner I'll never know. So easy, not messy. Put simple green degreaser in the first round, dawn dish det the second, and plain water the third. It came so clean the water wasn't dirty. Lube and go.

        Great chain cleaner. It's easy to re-fill and clean. Works fast and your hands stay clean. Used it best with Nashbar Citrus de-greaser.

        Works good with dish soap. Plastic broke on one of the clps and at the handle. Use carefully, it is fragile.

          Comments about Park Tool CM-5 Cyclone Chain Scrubber:

          Works very well when not broken. Cleans the chain very well, easily installed and removed, secure in place. However, I've had three over last five years and the handle retainer and the side brush wheel inside have both broken on all three. One use on a wider chain like 5- or 6-speed will break the brush wheel. I'm an engineer, so I know Park could fix these and have an excellent cleaner. As it is, I've given up on this one until they change their design and materials.

          Makes a chain shine, but...

          Pros

          • Thoroughly cleans

          Cons

          • Clips come off

          Comments about Park Tool CM-5 Cyclone Chain Scrubber:

          I thought I'd give this a try after using the White Lightning degreaser/brush combo, which is pretty cool itself. Maybe it's the Park degreaser but it gets the chain GLEAMING!! However, the clips that hold the top and bottom together easily come off. After that happened a few times I took off the handle entirely and started holding the top and bottom halves by hand which isn't tough to do by any means. It does a GREAT job on the chain, turn the crank 30 times per the instructions (remember those?). I suppose you can clean the whole assembly out with some hot water and dish soap.

          I also put some of the degreaser in a small bowl and let my cassette soak in that to ease cleanup.

            Comments about Park Tool CM-5 Cyclone Chain Scrubber:

            This chain tool works really well, however I have a feeling I will be looking into getting one that wont fall into a million pieces as soon as I take it off the chain. The things that keep the clips attached to the tool fell off the first time i used it. Its getting harder to get it onto the chain atm without having some piece (handle, magnet etc) falling off the thing.
            That being said, it cleans really really really well.
            But needs a rework.

              Comments about Park Tool CM-5 Cyclone Chain Scrubber:

              Just echoing some of the experiences others had. Does what it is suppose to do well, but poor materials means this chain cleaner does not last. The clips that seal it break off almost immediately. The sponge is not available, and the magnet at the bottom (to pull metallic particles out of the cleaning solution, breaks off as well. Park could have a stellar tool if they reinforced the clip hinges, used a screw or rivet instead of a plastic cap for the magnet, and sold replacement parts such as sponges.

              Comments about Park Tool CM-5 Cyclone Chain Scrubber:

              The plastic ends where the metal clips go in to lock the cleaner on the chain get weak and eventually break off after several (10 or less) uses. This renders the tool useless. Need stronger or thicker joints where the metal clips lock in.
