Hi all, anyone find anything that works well for cleaning spokes?

I use McGuires Quick Detailer on my whole bike. It works great on paint, and it really brings out the shine of chrome. I don't have the spokes, because i have a Custom, but i think it would work on the spokes. Its pretty cheap and like i said, I use it on pretty much the whole bike. It's worth a shot, and you can get it any auto parts store.

LOL...

Fingers, Never-Dull, and a lot of time....if it's been a while since you've cleaned them.
Harbor Freight has a wheel cleaning stand for $30 - that I saw a few days ago. If I hadn't just spent 35 bucks on a Wolo horn I'd have taken that puppy home with me.

Good Luck.

I wash my ride frequently so keeping everything clean isn't a chore. For the rims and spokes I just use the McGuire blue soapy car wash with a sponge on a handle gizmo from Wally World used to wash the inside of drinking glasses. For my initial drying, I use a Toro electric leaf blower and then detail dry it.
