Chain Lube

Post by JAX » Thu Sep 07, 2017 1:24 am

So what is the best lube out there that doesn't splat all over the place but does a good job. I tried many but still not found the ideal one. :scratch:

Motul off road is the best I have found, doesn't wash off and crap doesn't stick to it. Discovered it by accident now use it by choice :)

don't use wd40 products as they fling off and is very sticky and is hard to remove from the wheel. silkolene is good apparently..

Used Wurth Dry lube without issues, last chain did 35k and didn't seem to be knackered but I decided not to chance it with going to Czech.

35k that's impressive.

Trick is put it on when the chain is hot after a ride not when it is cold before a ride, don't iover lube it, a little every week is better than drowning it and having it flick off

Never had any issue with my Scottoiler system, still using the same top up oil bottle for the last 5 years very economical, and fully adjustable with regards oil delivery.
