Muc-Off 8 in 1 Bicycle Cleaning Kit review

George Wallis-Ryder

A compilation of Muc-Off's greatest hits in one neat package.

Muc-Off is a name as synonymous with cleaning one’s bicycle as Dyson and Hoover are with vacuuming your lounge floor. Any brand that can count the likes of Team Sky as a customer is going to be of a high standard, and whilst your bike might not travel quite as fast as theirs, it can certainly look just as neat and shiny. Muc-Off’s 8 in 1 Bicycle Cleaning Kit comprises four different brushes, a sponge, a litre of bike cleaner and a post-wash protection spray, all stowed in a handy carry tub that doubles as a bucket.

What you don’t find in the box is the time saved by having all your cleaning essentials in one package. Most cyclists place washing their bike on a scale ranging somewhere between ‘loathsome’ and ‘ mild annoyance,’ but Muc-Off’s kit goes a long way to making the process far less of a chore. Although spending £40 on bicycle cleaning products may seem strange to those outside the cult of velo, in reality the package represents excellent value when you consider that the cleaning solution alone retails at £9 and brushes for £6 each.

Premium products are often the sum of a number of well thought out details, and Muc-Off’s package is no different. The brushes all feature chunky handles that are easy to hold when covered in suds, and swing tags suggesting each brush’s best application are a nifty touch. If we had a negative observation on Muc-Off’s cleaning kit, it would be that a drivetrain degreasing fluid might have been preferred over - or as well as - the included protection spray. However, whichever way you look at it this package equates to less time cleaning, and more time riding. You can’t say fairer than that can you?
