Guy Martin is certainly a man with a different way of looking at things and he’s most recently turned his attention to bike cleaner.
You’ve got admit he’s got a point when he asks; “why do they ship you the water?”. So he’s come up with bike cleaner pellets that you dilute into water yourself. In your first pack you buy an empty bottle and some sachets, then just buy new sachets each time you run out.
In Guy’s own words: “How’s it going? I like to clean my bikes and vehicles, it’s important to look after them, give them a bit of thanks back and anyway it got me thinking, there has to be better way of making this cleaner gear.
“I use loads of it, and apart from anything it takes up a right load of space in the shed when it’s mixed in bottles! Now then, 70% of the planet is covered in water and there’s a massive business in delivering it all over the world, that seems crackers! So, I had a yarn with a few folk about doing something soluble, add your own water whenever you need to.
“We found a man, who knew a girl, who knew a fella, who found some folks up North, who could make what we needed and after months of testing, it’s now in your bottle but with your own water! It uses less fuel to get it to you, the liquid is bio-degradable, it’s not tested on Nigel the dog or his mates and it won’t take up half your shed! It’s Proper Cleaner and it’s the future!
“Thanks for giving it a go! Ta. Guy.”
Anyway it’s £6.50 for your first one and a fiver a pop after that. More info here.
