If you have a bike with disc brakes, here’s a product to help protect them during cleaning or shipping. Muc-Off’s new Disc Brake Rotor Covers. They come in a package of 2 for $29.99. They’re easy to use. After washing your bike, separate the base plate from the neoprene cover. It goes around the hub axle and sandwiches the rotor between the two plates securing with Velcro. Once they are covered, you can spray protectants, polishes or lube without fear of getting it on the rotor or pads. After using the covers, rinse with water and hang dry.
You can also use them to cover your rotors when transporting the bike. It fits both road and MTB bikes.
View a How To video below. You can purchase Muc-Off disc brake rotor covers online or from your LBS.
