October 1, 2015
Model/Year: 2015

Pros: Inexpensive
safe for metals and plastics and skin
removes tough grease
environmentally friendly

Cons: Degreases bearings

Recommendation: Have used this for years on bikes and anything else that needs degreasing. I try to avoid getting it into bearings, but really it's impossible when cleaning a cassette on the bike.

Pros: Cheap
Cuts Grease

Recommendation: I like to use this once a year to wash my bikes. It really gets the crud off and isn't to harsh.

December 23, 2014
Model/Year: Spray Bottle

Pros: Works on a number of things.
Really cleans/cuts grease well

Cons: Be careful as it will get into bearings and dissolve the bearing grease.

Recommendation: This is great stuff if you are careful with it. You can cut it with water and it's pretty effective, but most people use it straight, which is pretty strong. Just be careful as it doesn't drip down into frame bearings, bottom brackets, etc....any place where you have bearings as this stuff will get in and dissolve the grease in those bearings.
It's great for soaking stuff. I restore old Stingrays and when I get everything apart, I spray everything and let them soak, then go for the brass wool scrubbing before putting back together. Love it.

Pros: Cleans well

Recommendation: I use this to degrease my bikes chains.

May 19, 2014
Pros: use it everywhere!
great value

Cons: none

Recommendation: I use this stuff everywhere! Its great for soaking a chain or cleaning sap and scum off your bike. It will strip a bearing of its grease so be aware. One concentrated bottle lasts years. Good stuff!

Pros: AWESOME! this stuff works in so many ways, on clothing, gear, bikes, cars, concrete, siding I could go on but since this is a bike MTB review...

Cons: um, none!

Recommendation: buy it in the Gallon jug, save a lot of money and work on learning what percent water to green works the best for your application
