I had an early appointment to get the front tire replaced today, and as luck would have it the fog was down to the ground dense. Naturally the bike was filthy when I got it home (in bright sunlight
) so I spent most of the afternoon bringing back to its normal cherry condition
During the course of the evolution I grabbed a 2 gallon hand pump pressure tank, (the kind you get from home/garden stores to use for spraying trees/plants, etc.) and tried it out on all those hard to reach places that picked up road film/dirt with the fog.
Eureka!! A mini pressure washer that doesn't damage anything, doesn't leave your wash area looking like a berth for Noah's Ark, is totally portable, needs no power source, and can clean in all the little crevices!!
With the adjustable nozzle and pressure, you can go from fine mist to stream. I like it a lot
You can also fill them with soap/cleaner mixes for that tough, ground in dirt....
You can find these little sprayer/tanks at any home store and they go for about $7 - $9 USD for the 2 gallon size.
So for those who don't want to drag out a hose and go through 50 gallons of wasted water doing your bike, these are just the thing
