I have a new mountain bike on the way and want to clean the factory grease off the chain that it comes with. What’s the best way to do this without removing the chain from the bike and compromising the master link? What cleaner do you use?
I’ll be applying Dumonde Tech after I strip it down, so it needs to be pretty clean.
I’ve ridden with the factory grease before and it was a dirt magnet so I’m not eager to do that again.
