When it comes to cleaning the freewheel, chain, derailleurs and more intricate components we found there was nothing available on the market that really hit the spot – and we were fed up of using rags and old toothbrushes that either get caught or simply move the dirt around rather than removing it!
Needless to say when we approached the largest UK manufacturer – they were eager to develop and supply a solution for us. After all – the pipe smoking market isn’t exactly booming!! This was all before the brand ‘Purple Harry’ came along – and… well if you really want to hear the story behind that you might just have to buy us a couple of beers… Since the Eureka moment of Bike Floss we’ve grown from strength to strength – with a complimentary range of liquids – each with a unique selling point – and another industry first in the Wash and Polish Mitt with a UK registered design. Again this has been designed with ergonomics as a forethought – its 3 pronged shape allowing easy access to the bikes fiddly bits without snagging on the drivetrain. Following the success with bike maintenance products we turned our focus to the rider. After all, it’s not much good if your bike’s in great shape but you’re not! Unfortunately we can’t help you get stronger legs – but our Ultimate Rider Care Range will ensure you get the best out of them and give comfort during and after your rides. Purple Harry’s products are manufactured in Great Britain wherever possible. We are committed to British Industry and believe that this ethos will assist the UK’s economic recovery.
