How often should I clean my bicycle chain?

The cleaner you keep your chain the longer it will last. Bicycle shops recommend cleaning your gears (both the crank and the cluster) and chain with a degreaser such as Simple Green, and then reapplying lubricant such as

Wight Lighting. As a guide, clean your drive train at least every 300 miles.
