I am changing out my front sprocket today and found a pile of road debris, grease, and who knows what else. I have a fairly new chain (O-ring), maybe 200 miles on it. When I took everything apart I realized that all this grime had mixed in my chain over time. Im afraid to use a heavy degreaser on it like I did the rest of the grime on the bike. What kind of cleaner can I use.

I've never done it but i have read in several other places that dish soap cuts throught it and will not hurt your chain. Also have read that things like degreasers, wd-40, etc are a big no no

I like bikes more than cars, but why is it I spend way more time on my car then my bikes?

I use kerosene as degreaser or diesel fuel w/c is safe for rubber and plastic just make sure to rinse it immediately with shampoo and water.
