ProGold Xtreme Chain Lubricant 4oz, Yellow, One Size
About this deal
Restores to Like-new shine. Bike Shine also protects against the sun’s rays that can dull and fade your paint over time. Safe for all surfaces on your bicycle. Bike Shine also leaves a residual coating that aids in repelling dust and dirt. After almost a year of wearing my helmet nearly every day, it reeks… Perfect opportunity to test out the ProGold Helmet Cleaner & Deodorizer. I waited for a sunny afternoon and sprayed one good coat of spray inside the helmet and onto the straps (picture 1). I followed the directions and let the helmet sit for several minutes. After the foam started melting away, I noticed that the dirt was running off the helmet (see sweat grime running off the straps onto the side of the helmet – picture 2). Since the helmet was really grimy, I repeated the spraying. Several minutes later, I hosed off the helmet. Still a little smell. I had to repeat 2 more times before the helmet came out sparkling clean without any stink.

I am far happier with Pedro’s Ice Wax and Boeshield T9 than with White Lightning, WL Race Day (junk — it precipitates and becomes unusable), or ProLink. — Richard M. Chain lube (or anything really) should NOT have PTFE in it. Why not? It’s exceptionally bad for the environment. Actually it’s inordinately bad for everything.

Wax doesn't seem to last as long in Winter as I'd like, but I've gotten used to wiping off and re-waxing my chain after rides (not before) and leaving it to dry overnight. I've not stretched to two-chains per bike, though technically there'd be no real hassle involved. Taking a chain off takes seconds these days, and shaking it clean in a bottle of solvent a few minutes. Ditto dipping it in wax and hanging it. 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.

As with any products, you should follow the instructions because generally it’s recommended to start with a clean chain before applying lube, rather than just layering it up. Do I really need to lube my chain? I use RnR gold, RnR red, Muc Off wet, Muc Off dry. Pretty lazy cleaning and applying but when used even the filthiest chain sets smooth out. If you prefer to keep your bike in pristine condition and are happy regularly cleaning and servicing your bike, a dry lube might be the right choice. Because it doesn’t attract grit and dirt like a wet lube, you can simply add a new application of dry lube to keep the drivetrain running sweetly.From a cost/benefit viewpoint, there's no point spending more on hi-tec unguents than you're saving on drivetrain wear.
