It took me a little while to get used to using it - I found that on the first couple of attempts I wan't holding it in quite the right position, and as such kept causing the chain to slip from the front cog. Lead to mucky fingers while refitting the chain.
Once I got into the swing of things though, wow. This product is incredibly easy to use, and will clean your chain in no time at all. If you've got a particularly mucky chain (like I did) you'll want to change the cleaning fluid a few times for that brand new chain look.
I have only one criticism of the tool, and that is that the bristles on the brushes may not be as secure as they could be - I found a couple of them sticking out of my chain after I was done. It could also be that this is just a "first use" issue, and I won't have to worry about it next time. Either way, I'd only consider it about third of a star deduction, hence the five star review.
Cheap, easy to use, and highly effective. I'd recommend this tool to anyone looking to get a nice clean chain in a hurry.
It might sound silly, but in fifteen years of trail cycling I never had an in situ cleaner. Always lubed my chains and did the toothbrush thing - and would from time to time take them off and rinse in solvent for cleaning. This one is a marvel, I should've bought one ages ago.
The thing is built well, not flimsy in the least and feels very sturdy. It has to - I felt like the strain on it was quite significant.
The process is not mess-free anyway. Even if you don't spill anything from the box, the chain will be wet, and it will be dripping on the floor, but hey, it works otherwise.
The biggest downside for me was the price. The RRP is 28 quid, and that's for a plastic box, a handle, a magnet, two clips, three brushes and a sponge. In fact, once you look at it closely, you'll realise that there's not much to it. Does the job, don't get me wrong, but it would appear that Park Tool themselves have noticed it - the packaging keeps bragging about gazillions of bristles brushing the chain. You don't see anything like that on toothbrush packaging? That's cause they don't cost nine quid a pop :)
But I'm happy I got it - went for good reviews so that I don't end up a similarly-shaped object that falls apart after a few uses, and in principle I'm quite happy. The alternatives are only slightly less overpriced, and who knows what their quality is like.
Use with Muc Off degreaser, then rinse with hot water, let chain dry and lube with Finish Line Dri chain Lube
I'm lucky enough to ride a gorgeous Specialized Venge with Di2 gears, I keep it immaculate and this tool is by far the best way to clean a chain.
It can cause a bit of a mess with drips etc. but I just use it outside.
Cant recommend it enough - I've had mine for nearly three years and it's still perfect
This is a brilliant piece of kit and it also keeps the mess intact. If your doing it indoors just put an old towel under your chain or some news paper as there is a tiny pit of spillage but nothing that would make a huge mess. You will need to clean it out afterwards but this is easy and it just needs running in the sink with washing up liquid and warm water.
It doesn't return your chain to a brand new appearance - but it does do what it says: Scrubs and cleans the chain.
If you're a dedicated bike cleaner type of person, you'll find this a great timesaver, and if you're lazy - even more so. If you don't mind the rags and scrubbing brushes type of approach, then this isn't for you, and to behonest, probably doesn't do as good a job as the manual labour intensive methods.
Two things to note: Once you've de-greased your chain, you need to remove the de-greaser, dry and re-apply oil. That's not an automatic process.
One reviewer stated that the bristles were pulled out - I can't say I've had that problem myself.
