All of Fenwick's range of cleaners are very environmentally friendly and kind to your hands, and the FS10 bike cleaner is no exception. Marketed as an 'everyday cleanser' for your bike it's helpful when it comes to getting the general road grime off your steed, but no more so than a bit of washing up liquid, really, and it struggles with sterner tests.
We first saw the FS foaming degreaser at the start of the year and it certainly looked like a fun new way to get your bike clean, if it can ever be fun. In practice the main benefits are the ease of use and lack of mess. It's a bit lacking in terms of raw degreasing power but a great choice for a general clean. And it's so safe you could eat it – Mr Fenwick tests all his products by eating them, apparently – although it probably isn't recommended as a regular part of your diet.
Fenwicks Pro Lubricant spray is a useful addition to the toolbox, good for blasting dirt from hard-to-reach mechanisms and cleaning out cable runs. The high pressure aerosol means it doesn't last long though, and it's not the most tenacious lubricant out there. It's better than WD40 though.
Formulated for wet-weather performance, Fenwick’s complex synthetic grease is a heavyweight general-purpose assembly paste perfect for free/hubs, bottom bracket and other bearing surfaces through to contact points-even on bikes such as crossers, mountain bikes, winter trainers and stripped- to- basics single speed/commuter fixers thanks to the blend’s tenacity and complex properties. That said I have some reservations concerning its long-term compatibility with elastomer suspension bushes and stick with dedicated pastes when installing carbon and Ti components.
