Simple Green is even worse on steel, makes it brittle.  Soaked a new chain in it once, and on the next ride it broke in 5 places.  Had no idea what was going on until I searched the Google back home. I don't get why people use cleaning fluids of any kind on their bikes, unless selling or fully breaking it down.  Yeah, alcohol for functional cleaning, but nothing but a brush, and maybe a hose if it was horribly sloppy. Your bearings will thank you. It'll be dirty again next time you ride it.  Dirt pride!
