Anything better?

What about about Squirt Long Lasting Dry Chain Lube ?


IME, for long term use, chain lube; the ones you heat and sooak it in.
anything else tends to wash off far quicker.

Use the bike?


Only after dumping any seriously rusted chain.

You are not funny.


This you should have told the crackpot who recommended silicone oil for your
chain.

I am the one who came up with using silicone oil.

And there have been no bad effects from using it.

It washes off quickly in the rain -- as do spray-on Teflon lubricants. SMS would recommend OTC motorcycle chain lubricants with a foam carrier. Frank likes wax. This morning I used some ATB I had knocking around: https://www.bikegallery.com/product/...cant-10322.htm

I rode home last night in a torrential downpour. In one place, my pedals were under water. True Old Testament commute -- or the MidWest. Keeping any lubricant on the chain in that kind of weather is almost impossible.

Heck with that. Check out the video "Super Fast!!" that comes up at the end.

I wonder what rpm they're pedaling at? The guy standing moves about whilst the guys are spinning and therefore you know that video wasn't just sped up.

Cheers

This was my commute about a month ago:

If both pedals aren't subrmerged at the same time, it's not
torrential.

LPS 3 works well. It is applied as liquid and then solidifies, like a wax. It is petroleum based, anti-corrosion compound.

How about this one: According to the map, we
are completely lost!

Heck, I don't know what to use. I never had
this problem. I use chainsaw oil, before that
hydraulic oil. I use the bike every day, and
I keep it outside 24/7/365+1, without any
protection from rain/snow.

But if I know there has been a rainfall,
I re-lube the chain. Other than that I lube it
when I hear a suspect noise, or once every two
or three weeks or so.

Never ever do I see any rust on the chain, so
you, or anyone else for that matter tell me,
why you suffer from this problem and I don't.

It might have something to do with the
particular chain as well; mine is a KMC Z8RB.
I think it is intended for 8 piece casettes,
but it works fine for my 5 piece
Shimano Positron.
