So I have had to move again and the cat sleeps in a shipping container (no elec, no water) nearby.

Carrying a bucket there is a bit awkward, so is parking outside my flat and washing it on the road grumpy

Anyone know of any "Mobile Valets" that do / specialize in bikes?

Likewise, could help in London.

I have a Hozelock spray thing for cars/bikes was about £20, sure I got it from Halfrauds. Think it holds 5-8 liters, you hand pump up the tank and it's ready to use. Pressure is less than a hose pipe but easier than a bucket. Needs a few cranks to keep the pressure up though. It bit like a garden sprayer.

Been eying [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] out but at £220 and no stock, I'm safe in just looking

I bought something similar from ebay in March last year, when we were about to start a hosepipe ban. It hasn't stopped raining since. Is there a connection? wall

The £220 version has it's own power source.. for a mere <cough> £140 there's one you can hook to the bike battery - I'd guess don't run it too long though!

£65 is about right, well for my part of the world. Two of those and you bought the Nomad.

I found the bucket method a real pain, needed to fill the bucket a good few times as the water got so dirty. That pump sprayer I mentioned is a vast improvement - water always clean and only refill it once, and that's only because I put 'bike bubble bath' Smile (turtle wax car wash) in the wash cycle.

Maybe we need to talk Bob into giving his up and stop all the rain lachen

The Nomad units I mentioned have been out of production - got an email from the company today saying they have some of their older units for sale on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].
Still not the price of a bucket though. Not sure I'll get to try the one I've bought and report if it's any good before they are all sold.
