It'll never be as good as new, but usually yes.

First give it a good soaking in a penetrating oil of your choice, then start working your way along the chain, flexing one link at a time back & forth until they all move freely.

What is the best way to wash a bike?

The best way to wash your bike is to wash it on a driveway, or on a hard surface outside. Use the hose, soap or dish wash like Dawn dish soap, or car cleaning solution. Hose it down and clean it, for the seat, if leather, you can use leather wipes to clean it wet. Let it dry in the sun, or use a towel, and you've got yourself a shiny bike!

How do you cut i bike chain?

To remove a bike chain, there is a special tool called a chain break tool, available at bike shops. What this tool does is push out a pin holding the links together. In an emergency, you could possibly use a vise to hold the chain, and a small nail punch to push out the pin. Using the tool designed for the job is much easier. If you are replacing links in the chain, or putting a new one on the bike, the tool can be used toreinstall the pin. Be careful when you push the pin out, that you don't push it completely out of both sides of the link. You want the pin to remain attached to one side of one link, or else you will spend a lot of time getting the pin reattached The tool can be somewhat expensive, so ask how much the bike shop would charge to remove the old worn out/rusty chain and install a new one. Refer to SheldonBrown.com/chains.html for more information and pictures to explain chain removal.

Can gunk clean your bike chain?

Yes, Gunk is good for cleaning chains. I just scrub it on with an old toothbrush, holding a shallow container underneath the part I'm scrubbing to catch drips. Keep on scrubbing the chain and then leave for 5 minutes. Then just hose off or wipe with copious amounts of water soaked in a rag until clean. It's a messy job and not as good as cleaning the chain off the bike but it works well as Gunk is a very effective degreaser.
