The best bicycle chain lubes get right into the links of your chain to lubricate it, and then stay there. The latest chain lubes include fiendishly clever additives which allow them to coat metal surfaces without attracting crud. They're expensive, but arguably worth the money if you're running an expensive transmission and want to prolong its life. The second application survived some pretty foul weather, the Dartmoor Devil audax (muddy, grim) and is just running dry after over 300 miles. That's really quite remarkable.” Argus Tuft: I'm with bikespud. Wax every time. Boeshield (T47?), White Lightning – It's just wax dissolved in solvent. It even says as much on the Boeshield bottle. Make your own and use heaps. It's almost free! matthewn5: Singer sewing machine oil. Cheap and lasts for ever. I use Muc-off wet lube as a flushing oil to clean the chain, wipe it off, then apply sewing maching oil, wiping off excess. The chain feels so plush afterwards, it's lovely.

Finish Line Teflon Plus Dry Chain Lube (8 fl oz 240ml Bottle

John has been writing about bikes and cycling for over 30 years since discovering that people were mug enough to pay him for it rather than expecting him to do an honest day's work. Formulated using polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), the Park Tool CL-1 Synthetic Blend Bicycle Chain Lube works great in both wet and dry conditions. It fixes chain noises and squeaks, extending the life of your drivetrain parts and chain. This chain lube repels moisture to prevent your chain from rusting. It’s also a general-purpose light lubricant, meaning you can apply it to your brake pivots, spoke nipples, cables, and derailleur.

And if you’re wondering why you can’t use WD40 or GT85, they’re water displacement products and should only really be used after cleaning your bike and before correct lubrication. They have some lubricating properties, and plenty of uses on bikes and round the house, but they're not up to the job of keeping a bike chain properly protected. I usually clean the chain after a ride anyway then relube the links – give it a work in then wipe off excess (using the chain scrub also then mostly cleans the rest of the drivechain)… every so often I’ll take the chain off and clean it then give it a spray with 3-in-1 work it all in and then wipe until a paper towel is more or less dry…(used oil soaked paper towels then get used to light the fire) Dry Lubes – Despite the name, these go on wet and set dry. Finish Line’s dry lube (in the red bottle) provides penetrating lubrication and is made from a mix of synthetic oils and Teflon. Finish Line dry is a versatile lube that can be used on chains, shifters, brake pivot points and derailleurs. Dry lubes generally need to be applied more often and obviously perform best on a clean chain. The short answer: probably. For mountain bikers and other off-road cyclists, it’s a great choice. Riding in dusty, gritty conditions is why it was created in the first place, and it can handle slightly wet conditions. Most cyclists would benefit from using dry bike chain lube as their go-to, according to Krause. He sees it used in all disciplines. You should use a dry, wax-based lube during dry, summer, and spring conditions. They attract less dirt during such conditions, making it easy to ride on gravel or off-road conditions. Wet lubes are ideal for most weather conditions. In fact, you can use them almost throughout the year. They’re more effective during wet seasons as they are water-resistant. How often should I lube my bike chain?

First of all, a dry lubricant from the industrial industry is vastly different and should not be used for the same application in bike care. “There are dry lubricants that are 100 percent solids,” Krause explained.Argus Tuft: Dissolve a rounded teaspoon of grated paraffin wax in 100ml of shellite (I don't know what it's called over there – Stoddard's Solvent?). Using pliers, carefully pull the nozzle out of a R&R lube bottle and refill using a small funnel. Close enough to free. A small amount of moly or bearing grease – less is more – makes it even better. I left the factory lube on like Sheldon Brown suggests, but after as little at 200 miles the chain was already 0.5% stretched. If you’re a regular commuter or a year-round long distance cyclist, then a wet lube is going to be our tip for you. It will not only last longer but also handle any weather conditions. visionset: How many miles you get out of chain is irrelevent unless you also state oyur maintenance philosophy. If you are running the whole drive train into the ground (or at least cahin and cassette) you probably can get 10,000 miles out of it. No one is gonna be impressed with the shfiting on said drive train after say 3000 miles. Or alternatively you intend to keep your cassette throun many chains, and you can for probably 10 chains if you wear to 100.2% Yep that's just 0.2% of wear. equates to about 5mm of 'stretch'. Over this and you start to shag the cassette. If you are on Ultegra or better then the latter approach is cost effective and always a crisp change to boot.

Finish Line Dry Bike Lubricant with Teflon Squeeze Bottle 4oz

Dry lube comes out of the bottle wet, commonly a fast-flowing liquid but once it dries it leaves a wax film on the chain. It’s this wax that provides the necessary lubrication, the liquid is simply the carrier for the wax. If you need a wet chain lube, then the WD-40 Specialist Bike Wet Chain Lube makes a remarkable choice. The lube works by forming a durable coating that repels mud and water to protect your chain’s structural integrity. This no-wax formula will not accumulate in the drivetrain and chain links, to keep you riding in wet conditions with confidence. It also prevents friction to enhance the life of your chain. Dry Lube is especially recommended for riding on or off-road in dry, dirty, dusty environments, yet it holds up well in moderately wet conditions. Dry Lube can also be used on derailleurs, shifters, cables, and brake pivot points. Finish Line's Dry Lube provides optimum drivetrain efficiency without attracting an excessive amount of abrasive contaminants. fukawitribe replied to r.glancy: I've found Squirt stays on pretty well (for me anyway) even in the wet - very clean, very easy to apply, not so cheap. I've not tried Smoove yet but heard good things about running it, not so much the actual prep and application, probably give it a whirl at some point though. Tester Stu writes: “ChainJ is made from renewable materials, and is biodegradable making it 'safe for the people and the planet.'

Argus Tuft replied to hawkinspeter: Ta HP - I found it worked as well as the bought stuff.I've moved on to using a home made "candle" of wax with a dash of grease applied to a chain freshly warmed with a heat gun. Any dirt seems to fall away. No cleaning required. Use a suitable heat shield between chain and wheel. mikepridmorewood: I've had 10,000k out of a chain by cleaning with wet wipes and lubricating with GT85 I waxed 6 new chains and then just rewax when required (so far I've only needed to do the indoor trainer bike's chain). Should I actually be cleaning off an outdoor chain before rewaxing? With the changeable summer weather we had during testing a once a month clean of the chain and re-lube with the Pedro's kept everything running smoothly. You'll need to re-apply more often in winter.” A friend of mine was doing that years ago, and suffered third degree facial burns when it caught fire as she was heating it. Be *very* careful.
