helo. i need some advice. juist inherited a bicycle about 3 yrs old. its got
lots of little gears and stuff, and looks more than just a normal bicycle. i
can ride, but i don't know anything abt bikes. trouble is, the whole bike is
covered in some oily black gunk. i was intending to put some anti-rust on
the rusty parts 1st, but now i am thinking i should clean up the bike 1st.

i've used some wd40 to remove parts that are stuck and its seems the oily
gunk does come off. but is there anyway i can wash a bike with like
degreaser and water?
