Bike wash. Is there a good place?

Recommended Posts

Wondering if there is a good bike wash around Pattaya/Jomtien?

By "good" I mean a place where the dimwits don't use a pressure washer on my electronics and bearing seals.

 

Over to you.

If you go up Pattaya Tai past Tukcom and cross 3rd Road, there is a large gas station there on the left and they have a car/bike wash in the back of the lot. I used them for years and they do a great job.

You can get a regular wash or pay a little more and get the bike detailed.

There are coin operated self wash machines around town.  One hose soap, one spray.  You don't have to use high pressure. Probably have to bring a towel.  

There are two on the soi between Shagwell Mansion and Sukimvit.

Hi @onehunglo can you give me a Google maps link as I am confused with your directions?

Do you turn off Soi 3 or stay on it? If so which soi do you go down? The one past Bliss is a small dead end soi, the next one is also a dead end, Chaloem Phrakiat Alley 16...

Will give them a try when I next need a bike wash.

Thanks.

Do it yourself, takes 5-10 mins.

 

All the ones I've seen use high pressure

I stopped at the Ducati dealer, thinking they know of a reliable wash. “Behind BigC” was the suggestion. “Tell them not to spray too hard.”

 Thinking I will go use the self service place suggested here and do it myself.

I walked past one of those suggested by Norcal Kid when walking the dog 2 days ago. Thai bloke pulling the tin off the roof of one of the wash bays standing on top of the ladder and instead of opening it he leant it against a pole and of course he crashed . The Thai bloke next door berated him but as I think he owns it but if he had of helped maybe it wouldn't happen.

The op is quite right about high pressure hoses. The Australian Army bought a heap of them for the bases so they could clean vehicles. The amount of repaints was soaring. The did some chemical analysis and found that the pressure was weakening the paint . So it was back to mops and buckets. You could use the high pressure hose on your own vehicles but not Army plated ones.

Been using the waterless wash spray lately in the States.   Stuff works great for just kind of road dirty bike(not for off road dirty).  Might look for some.   I  use those rags made for washing too.  

Been using turtle wax brand but there are lots of waterless bug and grease removers.
