We all love washing our bikes, but cleaning the wheels can be sort of a pain in the ass. Typically you’ll clean one area of the wheel, roll the bike forward or backward, clean another part, and repeat until you get the whole thing clean. The Wheel Jockey serves to solve the cumbersome issue of rolling the bike back and forth. With its sturdy aluminum and steel design you simply roll your wheel (front or back) onto the roller of the Wheel Jockey and then set the bike on the side or center stand. The wheel is then supported 1-1/5 inches off the ground by the rollers allowing you to rotate the wheel as needed without having to move the entire bike. Don’t let the small size fool you, with two models to choose from, the Sport Model ($59) for bikes up to 650 pounds, and the Big Boy model ($89) for bikes up to 950 pounds, the Wheel Jockey makes cleaning wheels and tires a breeze and saves time and energy. The Wheel Jockey can even be used for chain or belt maintenance.
