Anyone ever use this stuff? The new bicycles that are coming through to my shops are increasingly using matte finishes. We like to give each new bike a wipe down with polish before it goes on the floor or out the door, but polish on a matte finish is a no-no.

Who's using it and what do you think?

Works great Al. I have been using the HD denim cleaner for a while now. Used Windex before that for a very brief time but I didn't care for it. I also have an all denim bicycle and it works great for that as well.... gives it that new clean look.

Thanks Moe & Lance. I think I'll pick up a couple bottles and see how it goes. What is that bike? A Nirve 3 Speed?

You won't be disappointed. Bike is a sixthreezero.....3 speed. I really enjoy the forward pedal position.

I use that cleaner sometimes Al, but i also use foaming industrial glass cleaner made by Zep products. They both work great but the Zep cleaner is much more affordable.

I don't have any HD jeans

I don't have any HD jeans My train of thought on the HD cleaner is this........ I have Denim black paint on the bike by HD, cleaner made by HD states it will not harm said flat paint In any way. So.... when and if the paint does turn a vivid black gloss, I will be ringing the HD doorbell asking why the bike is now vivid black from a HD product that's states it is specifically formulated for their denim paint..This is the main reason why I use it, plus it works!

When I bought my XR (black denim) the tech that went over the bike with me said to just use hot water. I think his concern was that if you used the wrong thing, you could shine up the matte finish.
