I went to the one in SE by Alameda Mall but I think they all stock it. I have a few different air gauges but this one works great for bikes, especially where the front rotors get in the way of the valve stem. The only thing I don't like about it is that there's a stubby peice of metal where you push down the chuck into the valve stem and it hurts the thumb. Not sure what the purpose of it is.

well w/ Ormands rec. i went and bought a bottle of S100

FAIL

i cleaned my wheels a week ago and rode a few hundred miles since.

since its a new bike, i keep my stuff clean

sprayed it on, waited the 15 min. since they really weren't that dirty.

hosed it off, nothing really

i don't think it would clean any better or worse then DAWN dish soap.

it made the wheels slick as snot, but i still had to apply good ol elbow grease to get the residue off.

my wheels are gold, so you can see the dirt come off.

Ed,
Did you get the blue or red bottle?
The blue is a general cleaner, the red is specifically for wheels.
we use it on wire wheels here at the shop all of the time with great results.

I use the general cleaner on the bike. I liked the red bottle for wheels but lately I've been using WD-40 and elbow grease. Gets very clean, shiny, and almost dirt resistant for a little while.

Red, it did leave a nice "finish" on the wheels

Sucks to be you. It worked well with my chain-wax-covered wheels...S100 just dissolved everything right off the wheel It didn't leave any kind of coating on the wheel, just got rid of everything ontop of the factory paint

wheels, are your wheels painted?

mine are forged so they are "unfinished" in that they are still cast looking (pitted) vs i know Ormands are painted.

S100 makes good stuff. The bike cleaner works great!
Spray it on, rinse it off and then towel dry. Sometimes you gotta scrub dryed bugs a little but they come right off.
AND it doesn't remove the wax.
