For those of you who have forged aluminium wheels what do you use to clean your wheels especially the chain wax that gets on the rear wheel. I'm just weary on using harsh chemicals on the anodized wheels.

Try WD-40, only a small squirt at a time so as not to get it on your tyres

WD40 on a rag. Doesn't hurt paint / anodize.

Kero and a rag. Then follow it up with some of that CRC silicone spray stuff and it'll make it easier to clean next time.

Mine are chrome so I just use never dull. I don't mind the extra weight because it make cleaning that much easier. The roads around here are horrible, you can take a 20 mile ride and the bike looks like you haven't cleaned it in a month.

+1 for WD-40 works great on wheels, swinger, to take off grease, dirt and chain wax. And it's cheap too.

Don't have forged wheels, but WD does work great
