Comments about Park Tool CM-5 Cyclone Chain Scrubber:

I use this about every 100 miles or so and i can say if you use like water/dawn mix it will clean the chain nicely but i have found out that a degreaser does a way better job at cleaning the chain with this product the only fought I see in it is the sponge inside will get soaked with dirty grease and water over time (the reason for 4 stars) but thats not a real big deal just ring it out now and again and you are good to go if my ever broke i would buy another one

    Comments about Park Tool CM-5 Cyclone Chain Scrubber:

    This scrubber does a good job cleaning the chain if it is handled carefully. Ignore the handle, hold the body of the scrubber and treat the clips that hold the top on as if they were made of crystal and this device will work for you.

        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.

        Good concept, flawed delivery

        By Cycling Schue

        from Central MN

        Pros

        • Cleans Well
        • Minimal Drips

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Keep In the Garage
          • Road Bikes

          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.

          Pros

          • Thoroughly cleans

          Cons

          • Clips come off

          Best Uses

          • Keep In the Garage
          • Mountain Bikes
          • Road Bikes

          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.
