Whatever sprayer you go with I find that warm or hot water does a better job. I designed a water heater that runs on burning tires and/or styrofoam. It is environmentally friendly because it keeps them both out of the landfill and frees the carbon emissions into the atmosphere instead of into the soil. Once I get a patent on it it will hit the market. I found a company in Viet Nam that will produce it super cheap. They use to make clothing for Cathy Lee Gifford but all the children have been unemployed since she pulled the plug to have overpaid adults make her stuff instead.

I am going to buy one of those 12V power washers to wash our dishes and pots and pans when we camp.
Then carry the water source over to the 110 and spray off the mud.

Jason, you are one cool Swangeren!
brother Robert did you notice the shipping cost on our new dish washer ? $30 to ship a $45 item ?

Yes, but looking for some for sale with cheap shipping.
This is from China, but was mentioned above:

If not will have it shipped to Ashcroft to arrive with my spring order.

I'd be interested in that. I'm not too worried about carrying the bike up stair since its pretty light. Maybe a I should upgrade to carbon...

These mountain bikes need to be banned or require the owners to have environmental impact training and they should be forced to use super wide, slick tires so the weight of the bike is spread over several square feet and don't leave a rut or pattern in mother earth.
Any cleaning solvents used wouldn't be good for the environment.
Even if you just used high pressure water you would cause undo erosion in the area where you cleaned them or leave an area of pavement a mess, covered in mud.

hahahahahahahahhahahahahahh!!!!!

I'll buy 5 of them used and submit the exact same receipt only 3 times (written out on an old fish and chips bag complete with identifiable grease stains).

I haven't washed my bike after a ride in many many years. And the trail bike stays in the house. The only time it gets real clean is when I work on a certain part that has to get changed out/fixed

If it's getting that muddy you really shouldn't be riding trails. I could write a short novel on misuse of trails but will save it. But if you are riding smartly like you said you are and just need it rinsed off so the apt doesn't get dirty I would pack a stiff brush for the tires and some baby wipes to get around the dirt collecting areas - BB, DT and CS. Maybe a can of compressed air like you find at the computer sections of best buy.

Why buy something that needs a 110V to change the battery and only carries 5 gallons of water or a washer that still requires a water source? Run it through a heat exchanger under the hood for hot water too. 16 gallons, $150 stateside and a 2 yr warranty.

Just saw this today and thought it could be a good option since your bike seemingly only needs to be rinsed.
