パーフェクトなスプロケットのクリーニング方法 ～How To Get A Perfectly Clean Cassette～
Particularly during the colder and wetter seasons, our bikes can get filthy and the back wheel often suffers the most - in particular the cassette and rear hub. Let’s look at how to clean your cassette really well, with the bonus of not having to remove it.

With the back wheel removed from the bike, grab a length of t-shirt and simply slot it in between two sprockets, and work the t-shirt back and forth. The freehub mechanism should allow the cassette to rotate a whole revolution backwards and make the job really easy.
Something to be aware of here. If your freehub is filthy, bits of oily crud are likely to pop out onto the floor, so pay really close attention to these. I know someone who once upon a time, stood on those bits and then you could trace where they’d been on the carpet of their parents home…
Once you feel its suitably clean, move onto the next gap between the sprockets and repeat. Once that is done, get your pipe-cleaners out repeat the process, you will most likely get some more oil and grime off. The pipe cleaners are great too as you can get them in between the cutouts of these sprockets too and give them a good clean.
