Duck Smart's Bullitt 33 is a silicone detailing spray that'll make your bike look nice and shiny after you've cleaned it.
You know what it it's like: you give your bike a thorough going over with the brush and cleaner and rinse it off, and it looks all smart and shiny, glistening in the sun. But when you come to drag it out of the shed it's dried, and it looks a bit or a mess: scratches in the paint, cleaning residue everywhere.
That's where Bullitt 33 comes in. Give your bike a good going over with the spray (avoid the brakes, eh) and then use a nice clean cloth to give it a buff. And it'll come up looking very nice. minor scratches in the paintwork or lacquer disappear, and paintwork gets some of its colour back. It does what it's supposed to do very well.
The silicone formula sticks around, and does a fairly decent job of stopping crud sticking to your bike, too. So after the next filthy ride it won't be quite as dirty, or take as long to clean. If you're the kind to regularly clean your bike, it's a good step to add to the process and it doesn't take that long; a couple of minutes is all you really need.
The spray has quite a distinct – and reasonably powerful – smell, so if you keep your bike indoors you'll certainly notice it. It's not unpleasant, but worth knowing if anyone in your household has an aversion to bikes that smell like sweets.
Not everyone's interested in getting their bike looking shiny and new. But if you are, the Bullitt 33 spray is a useful can to have in the shed.
