Mountain Bike Chain Cleaning. The best way is to perform regular mountain bike maintenance. Every few months or so (more often for mountain bikes), completely remove your chain using a chain-removal tool.
Do your own bike maintenance to save labour costs, and gain invaluable bike maintenance skills.. Clean and lube it frequently to slow the rate of chain wear. At Halfords, we stock a wide range of bike chain breakers for all bikes and all budgets.

Keeping your chain clean and lubed will keep things moving smoothly, enhance the life of your chain, and ensure your bike shifts as expected.
