  • The one on holloway road has closed down, does any else know of self service jetwash in norf london?

  • also looking for one round kings cross - camden area. ta

  • Okay, google streetview research & forum comments from 'Detailing World' (lol)

    • Shell, 109 York Way. Seems to be still there and right near Kings X
    • BP Hammersmith flyover
    • Texaco, Albert Embankment

    Anyone sacred tips for jetwashing a bike with sealed bearings? Spray parallel to hubs? Don't do it?

  • GCN did a video on jetwashing bikes and concluded it was pretty safe for bearings but YMMV of course

  • Garage on edgeware road, going north on the west side just before the canal has a washer.

    Hose pipe or mobi washer will do though.

  • Sealed bearings should be fine, but make sure you dry, then oil your chain and jockey wheels before putting the bike away. And try to let it dry as soon as possible (either put it inside for the night or a quick wipe down with an old towel).

  • Anyone SE know of a local place? We just regrouted the bathroom in the flat and I've therefore been told no more bike washes indoors. Just spent a while on StreetView looking for petrol stations with jet washes but no joy so far...

  • The car wash diagonally opp of m&s on old bromley road?

  • Anyone know of somewhere near the Holloway Road? Could also be a bit further north, as I’m generally coming back in from Barnet etc on rides.

  • BP at the corner of Seven Sisters/Wilberforce road. Just opposite the south gate of Finsbury Park.

  • Thanks! Will be a bit out of my way unless I’m on the way back from Epping / Essex, but as I can’t find anything else closer I’ll have to go and check it out!

  • There's a BP with a jet wash in Walthamstow: 298-310 Forest Rd, Walthamstow, London E17 5JG

    Edit: was a bit distracted when I read your message haha, definitely out of your way unless you're coming back in from Essex. It's a good one to get the mud off after an Epping sesh though.
