For dry and arid riding conditions. Extensively tested by scientists and pro mechanics alike. Special polymers form a dry film to protect your chain and repel dirt in arid or dusty conditions. The result is a clean, quiet drivetrain.
This lube is awesome because it leaves very little residue (follow the directions and wipe the chain a minute after applying) so doesn’t build up if you don’t clean your bike every ride. I’ve only had grime buildup in the nooks and crannies of the links after rides in dusty conditions.
As advertised, it’s good for one ride in wet conditions up to a few rides in dry, non-dusty conditions. However, the aerosol dispenser is terrible for lubing chains because it wastes at least half of what comes out and lubes the side of your rim, tire and the ground.
Why sell only wet OR dry chain lube in squeeze bottles, but not this superior lube? Please offer this fantastic lube in a better container (e. g. a 500mL HDPE bottle similar to dish soap) so I’m not wasting my money, lubricating my tires and polluting!.
Most trusted name in the lubricant industry lives up to its name. Ran the bike through puddles, and the lube stayed on through several rides, and kept the bike running smoothly. I like the easy to apply, small bottle size and the lid stays secure so you can put it in your pocket or in your pack, and it’s not going to leak.
Used sparingly along the chain and it was very effective. Could tell an ease-of-pedaling difference. I like to keep my chain somewhat on the dry side, and just apply the WD a little every so often. Doesn’t need much.
I actually plan to try this on my hedge trimmers in my lawncare business. I use regular WD-40, but this may actually work even better. I would strongly recommend it to anyone.
I’ve always grown up with WD-40 products in our household and we use it for anything and everything! When I had the chance to try their WD-40 BIKE® – All-Conditions Chain Lube, I was pretty excited! At first, I was thrown off by it’s small size but then I quickly realized that it’s actually perfect for spraying bicycle chains because it’s smaller it can get into the tight areas that larger cans can’t reach.
I like that they include their iconic spray extender on the can like their original product, it really helps to get in the spaces of the bike chains that can be hard to access. I used the WD-40 BIKE® – All-Conditions Chain Lube on my 6 year old sons bike, which he leaves out in the rain all the time! His chain is a little rusty and squeaky but this specific chain lube helped tremendously! I sprayed the product on very thoroughly and let it sit a few minutes and wiped it off then sprayed it again.
He was off to riding his bike with no loud squeaks and he says it’s a very smooth ride now. I’m actually very impressed by theWD-40 BIKE® – All-Conditions Chain Lube, I know that we will be making this a permanent tool in our house!.
DuPont Chain-Saver with Teflon Fluoropolymer is a patented self-cleaning, dry-wax lubricant that is safe on rubbers, plastics and O-rings. Wax film works to repel dirt, dust, paper, grass and other contaminates.
Helps chains last up to 5 times longer. Formulated with Teflon for longer lubricant life, enhanced wear protection, better high and low temperature range and increased resistance to water. Lubricant withstands up to 300 Degree F.
Best for lubricating motorcycle O-ring chains, industrial chains, cables, conveyors and even general purpose items like hinges and sliding doors.
I ride two S1000RRs. hard. I’ve used this lubrication from day one and with other bikes and in fact I make it a rule to remove the factory lubrication and replace with this. Goes on wet and dries – so no mess.
Gotten about 50,000 kms on stock chain and sprocket and still looks great with a bit more life on it – for a supersports its well-outperformed my expectations. Use kerosene to clean, and this spray to lubricate.
I had a can of the ‘old’ version and used it on my SEARS TS rip fence to stop it from erratic sliding and it worked marvelously. I could not find it save some NOS offers at $40/can! and went to Dupont site where they claimed this was the same formula.
I used it on my new chain saw bar and chain. I sprayed it and left it overnight. There was an obvious residue – a waxy coating visible that I had not noticed when using the old (blue label) can (which was very old).
It appears to have worked well. Not sure the credit is appropriately assigned to this stuff given the saw has it’s own auto-lubricating feature and adds Bar Chain Oil to the chain when running – not to mention the factory-sharp new chain and bar.
It may be a thicker solution than the ‘original, but the DRY FEATURE is superb for using in a dusty woodshop or on our vinyl sliding windows where an oily lubricant would collect dust and impede the sliding.
I intend to make additional use of this product and will have to report back later before claiming it is the equivalent of the ‘Original’ formulation.
I’ve been using Dupont Chain Saver several years ow on my ebike’s chain. I exclusively use the spray as it’s easier to control the product coming out of the little straw tube versus the liquid Chain Saver, which has a very thin viscosity, making you to lose more product then what is applied to the chain.
Long lasting and it sloughs off dirt easily. Highly recommended for any bicycle owners thinking of going to a dry lube.
Muc-Off’s C3 Dry Ceramic Chain Lube raises the bar when it comes to providing the ultimate lubrication. It provides total corrosion protection and unparalleled performance in dry, dusty and damp conditions.
With added nano ceramic particles (smaller than the competition for improved coverage) and synthetic polymers, C3 Dry Ceramic Chain Lube maximises your power output by reducing metal to metal contact to a ground breaking, low level and provides up to 10 times the performance of conventional chain oils and lubes.
The Muc-Off R&D team definitely didn’t cut corners when they brought the future of bike lubes to the masses. Muc-Off engineers made sure the C3 Dry Ceramic Lube is safe by creating a biodegradable, petroleum free formula so you don’t have to worry about yourself, your bike or the planet.
The new C3 Dry Ceramic Lube is available in 50mland120ml so whether you’re in the workshop, on the road or hitting the trails, you’re covered.
My experience with this lube is that if it’s applied correctly, it’s awesome. My drive chain has been running silently and smoothly since I started using it. That said, application is finicky and to get anything out of it, you need to follow the instructions to the letter.
If you expect to use this stuff 5 minutes before heading out on a dusty 50 mile ride, you are going to be seriously disappointed as it tends to turn into a oily sticky mess. As per the bottle: 1. Clean your chain! Really, it should be completely and thoroughly degreased.
This stuff dosen’t want to stick to any part that is covered in grease, dirt or oil. 2. After cleaning, let your chain dry completely. The lube’s carrier appears to be hydrophobic, meaning if your chain is wet, it won’t stick and just beads up.
3. Let the lube dry out after application. The instructions say to wait at least 3-4 hours, but in my experience it’s best to let it sit overnight. 4. Use the UV Light. It works, and you can see links that clearly don’t have lube in the rollers.
You can also see if the lube is beading up and not sticking to the metal.
I couldn’t be more impressed with this lube. Compared to other lubes I’ve used in the past, this lasts at least a few rides (in dry conditions). If you apply it at least an hour before a ride (3-4 hours is recommended) it will penetrate perfectly and have you pedaling with a silent drivetrain.
And if you follow the instructions, it really doesn’t attract dirt/dust much. A quick wipe down with an all purpose cleaner every few rides and re-applying and you’ll be able to go weeks or months without having to deep clean your drivetrain.
Super impressed and will continue buying and using this lube for mountain and road riding.
The Muc-Off Ceramic Bike Lubricant is one of their premium lubricants, apart from the Sky version, which is much higher priced. I would suggest that the product is ordered online and paid for and collected in store, as the online price is cheaper than going to the store and paying for it off the shelf.
Ordering online and going to the store to collect and pay can be done within one hour and it’s a simple process. THE LUBRICANT IS EASY TO APPLY – I just put a drop of oil on each link and slowly rotate the chain to the next section that requires a drop on each link.
This method uses less oil than rotating the chain and continuously pouring oil on the chain as it quickly goes round. I just simply use the flourescent light to ensure that the oil has penetrated down into each link, then leave the chain for 3 – 4 hours to dry, then I am ready to cycle.
ProGold ProLink is designed to shed dirt, mud, and abrasives, and reduce tacky build-up in all climates. Formulated for industrial, commercial and marine applications, it outperforms and lasts longer than any other general purpose lubricant.
Fast-penetrating, long-lasting lubrication. Cleans and prevents electrical corrosion on battery terminals, electric tools, and motors. Breaks down rust and corrosion. Resistant to most acids and caustics.
Speeds up drilling and tapping – cutting edges stay sharper longer. Reduces noise. Aerosol containers are ozone safe. Smoother shifting, quieter drive train. Repels moisture and reduces oxidation and corrosion.
Disperses water and resists wash-off. Will not build up or get tacky. Works well in all climates. Longer chain and sprocket life. Long lasting. Can be used as a dry lubricant. Environmentally friendly.
Best lube out there, it re-cleans the chain every time you use it and does not build up, it is a thin lube. Yes, you have to lube a bit more frequently, but it is amazingly smooth after you do (has embedded teflon or somesuch stuff).
At least on a road bike dirt, grim & grit don’t seem to stick to it very well. Be sure you lube your chain the day before you plan to ride so the more volatile part of the lube evaporates or you can get some sling off — just overnight and you are fine the next day.
I have used this stuff almost since its first introduction. It was developed by NASCAR engineers. I remember talking to the manufacturer directly several years ago just to question some of their seemingly outrageous and overly optimistic claims.
The rep told me that I “might never have to replace a chain again” if I kept it clean and lubed. I told him that such a claim was a little over the top! Nevertheless, I still like the stuff because it is not greasy and it is easy to clean and it doesn’t take much to be effective.
My only quibble is that because it is so thin and nearly clear, it is very tedious to apply. Just take your time. I appealed to the company to develop a better applicator top, perhaps something like a small brush head versus just a drip but nothing yet.
They recommend you apply it and then let it dry overnight, as the formula actually bonds to the metal surfaces. I try to remember to do that, as it results in less grit accumulating. PROS: Versatile BEST USES: Mountain Bikes, Road Bikes.
I have used various high quality lubes in the past, all the big names, but I keep coming back to ProLink. I like ProLink because it acts as a decent cleaner and a great lubricant. It’s a lower viscosity oil, so you’ll have to apply it a bit more often than the thicker stuff.
I usually apply this stuff about every 150-ish miles. I believe that some people really overcomplicate the process of oiling a chain by using fancy chain cleaning tools, degreasers, extended soaks in oil and/or mineral spirit baths, etc.
I’ll share my personal technique below. I’m not claiming this is the best way to do it, but it’s very easy and I get just as many miles out of my chains as I did back when I overcomplicated this process, if not more.
I’m a full-blown cycler who puts on a good amount of miles annually, so I’ve gone through plenty of chains and have tried various techniques. Below is all I ever do anymore. First, there’s no need to use degreaser unless your chain is rusty.
I’m in the camp that believes degreasers do more harm than good by allowing subtle debris to work its way deeper into the chain. Also, I believe that degreaser can flush deeply penetrated lube out, which can be hard to re-apply.
ProLink does a good enough job cleaning and your chain will still look fairly shiny. 1. – Wipe chain vigorously with a dry rag (just hold the chain with a rag and pedal backwards). 2. – Apply a drop of lube on each roller.
3. – Wipe chain vigorously again. 4. – Re-apply a drop of lube on each roller, try to get it between the roller and the plates for better penetration. 5. – Let it sit for at least 30 minutes, while doing so pedal backwards on occasion to allow the lube to move around inside the chain.
6. – Wipe your chain vigorously again. You don’t want the outside of your chain to be wet with oil, this will only gum up your drive-train by turning your chain into a dirt magnet (also if you don’t wipe it enough then you’ll get those dirty marks on your leg).
That’s it. Keep it simple, the chain is a disposable part and I have noticed no added life by using degreasers and more involved cleaning/lubing techniques. As a side note we own an indoor cycling studio we use ProLube on our indoor cycles too.
They are chain driven and ProLube helps to keep the chain clean and smooth. PROS: Versatile, Easy to Use BEST USES: Road Bikes, Long Rides.
Goes on wet and sets up with a dry ‘wax-like’ synthetic film that helps keep your chain clean by not absorbing excessive amounts grit, grime, or dust. Thanks to the added Teflon fluoropolymer, Finish Line’s Dry Lube minimizes pedaling friction, repels moisture, and withstands rides up to 100 miles.

I tried this chain lube as it is a respected brand and expensive, so it has to be good, right? I throughly cleaned and dried my mtb chain and entire driveline (SRAM 1×12 Eagle) then shook the bottle and applied a drip to every link on the chain.
After the solvent evaporated it looked like there was nothing there! Went for a ride and the gear change was ok but the drive line noise was higher than I have experienced with wet lubes. After only a 5 mile dry ride the noise and change were concerning.
I thought there was a problem with the drive! I applied extra lube which helped for a while but then noise returned. I cleaned the whole driveline and went back to my regular cheap wet oil lube. Now the driveline was back to its perfect change and near total silence.
So not impressed with this Finish Line Teflon Plus Dry chain lube.
So much cleaner than the wet variety! I remove my chain and after degrease and cleaning, let it sit in this lube while I clean the rest of the drive train, then wipe it down and replace chain. works great and doesn’t seem to collect as much grit and grime as the wet lubes.
I ride a full suspension MTB on and off road and use this procedure about every 200-250 miles. about 2 or 3 weeks. 8 oz bottle probably a 6 month supply for me. Gets a thumbs up from me!.
Our Dry Chain Lube has been formulated to hold up to the extreme pressures that are applied to a modern drive chain. Muc-Off Dry Chain Lube is formulated to hold up to the extreme pressures that are applied to modern drive chains.
This highly versatile, dry weather chain lube has superior penetrative qualities that ensure every part of the chain link is completely lubricated. Our advanced ‘Dry Formula’ creates a clean, durable and protective chain wax layer that inhibits rust development and chain link corrosion.
The formula creates exceptionally low surface friction to provide incredible drive chain efficiency without attracting contaminants. It’s clean, and it’s easy to use!.
I wanted a light weight chain Lube for my 8 day tour to France to save weight and space. I can not say there is anything wrong with the lube but this tin barely managed to oil the chain once. Frankly its too small to do the job.
You could buy 2 but itvstarts to look pricy then. If it were 100 ml in the same size can that would be worthwhile.
Received product after ordering and applied according to description. That is to say, the chain is well degreased, rinsed and dried and then Muc-off dry lube applied. In good weather conditions, the chain must now continue to run smoothly and remain nice and clean.
I am very curious about the experience. For a chain, it always applies that you check the lubrication in time. There’s nothing worse than a noisy chain destroying your sprockets.
Bought for a recent week long trip to Scotland (rained every day!). This lube kept the chain in good condition and easy to use, however ran out after about 5 days. Felt that there should have been more product in the can, or maybe just needs to be bigger! Wouldn’t have needed to use every day if weather was dry as it would have kept the chain in good condition and not got washed off.

I’ve been using this stuff for ~20 years on road and mtb. It’s liquid, but sets up to a slushy semisolid once the solvent evaporates. (similar to T-9) It runs quietly, I get good chain life, and it doesn’t accumulate dirt like other wet lubes.
I’ve used it in damp/wet conditions and in dry dusty conditions with good results. I apply it fairly frequently putting a drop on each roller, rotating the crank a bunch of times, then wiping off any excess with a old terrycloth rag.
There are many other lubes out there with miracle claims, but this stuff has worked well for me.
I’ve been using ProLink ProGold as a road bike chain lube for many years. I generally get good life out of my chains, which I attribute in part to fairly regular cleaning and lubing (about every 500 miles) with this ProLink product.
My experience with this lube is mostly in dry conditions, so I can’t say how well it lasts in the wet. Overall, I’m very happy with the Prolink ProGold chain lube.
Yes. I’ve had plenty of experience with it on road bikes, MTBs, commuter bikes & in slushy Toronto weather. This had been the only product I used so just got used to my chain becoming dirty very quickly.
It is a thin lubricant and lubes well with repeated application but I found that my chains become black and greasy over a short time. If you are diligent with regular/routine drivetrain degreasing you’ll be fine.
But if you let it go too long your drive chain will become very dirty with this product–even after application. As one reviewer had already mentioned, your chain must be immaculately before application or it will draw out the unseen residue and it’ll collect on the cogs and side plates.
I have since switched to Purple Extreme and I’m much happier with this product. It is also thin lube but so far my chains have stayed cleaner over a longer intervals. Give this a try if you are picky about having a fresh crispy drivetrains.
This is a super clean chain lube, in fact, this lube is not a self-cleaning lube, it simply picks up little or no dirt. Absolute Dry is ideal for clean freak roadies. Recommended for road use only. ABSOLUTE DRY is for the road bikes: Road bikes generally tend to pick up more dirt and dust from static discharge, so a thicker, dryer membrane is needed.
Mostly dry dusty conditions here. I have been using Rock N Roll Extreme (blue) for years now. Keeps the chain clean, good for several dry rides before needing to reapply. You can reapply and wipe excess of chain which cleans the chain quite a few times before really needing to get in and wash your drive train.
Colorado also dumps heavy rain at times. I have used this in very wet conditions and rain. Not sure if anything really works well with wet grit, sand and mud on the chain. The only thing I can say is once you get home it is really easy to wash and clean your drive train and chain when Rock N Roll was used in comparison to using a super wet condition chain formula which is usually sticky, greasy, waxy and hard to clean off.
Some of my friends have moved on to using another type of chain cleaner lubricant. They say it is better, but I didn’t have the time to investigate and bought into a 16oz bottle of Rock N Roll. This is good stuff and will be using it for as long as that bottle lasts which could be a couple years more.
Years ago, I think I tried every single lube available. If I hadn’t tried it, I’d buy it and see what it was like. I now occasionally try other stuff when I see something new, and I even tried hot wax for a while.
Hot wax was was pretty nice. but it wasn’t much good for more than a ride, and the work+time involved was not worth it for me. This is the next best thing; I never found another lube that suited mountain biking as well as this one.
It does “clean and lube”. Follow the instructions and you’ll be good to go. It does require more frequent application than some. it’s not a “lube your chain and forget about it until it squeaks” kind of lube.
but if you wanted that, you probably wouldn’t be reading lube reviews. That said, it’s super easy and fast. Using this product regularly will keep your chain clean and smooth with minimal work. Better chain longevity also.
Bio Dry Bike Chain Lube is a durable, deep penetrating Chain Lubricant and oil that’s formulated to hold up in extreme conditions that would destroy ordinary chain lubes. Dry Lube is a highly versatile, dry weather chain oil that has state of the art penetrative qualities to ensure that the lube is driven deep into each chain link’s core.
And there’s no need to worry because Dry Lube is biodegradable, so it’s safe for you, your bike and the planet. Ideal for MTB, Gravel, Road & Cyclocross Wax based formula excels in dry, dusty conditions Added protection against contaminants Provides smooth and quiet gear shifting Can be applied to chain, cables, shifters and derailleurs Pipette system for easy application 1.
Clean drive chain thoroughly before lube application. 2. Ensure drive chain area is dry. 3. Apply a moderate amount of Bio Dry Chain Lube to the inside chain link while spinning pedals in a reverse motion.
Had to write a review to warn of others. This dry lube is just not good. After cleaning the drive train and applying the lube to the chain etc i’d get maybe 100ish km out before a reapplication was needed.
My drive train was always a bit on the noisy side compared to WD-40 dry lube. Shifting was also a bit noisy. Its a wax based formula. maybe thats why? It does come off really easily during cleaning i will give them this point and it doesn’t attract as much dirt/grime compared to some of the other brands (assuming you are wiping off the excess).
But having to reapply before every ride its a pain in the behind. With other dry lubes i got 500-800 km before needing a cleanup and reapplication.
If applied correctly, it will work great. you need to clean your chain and drive train and then apply this solution. letting it dry for 3 hrs before riding. Good: Really good lubricant – tested by a youtuber.
smells great great nozzle on the bottle No black chain marks on leg drivetrain looks clean Bad: causing my gears to slip when peddling washes off in the rain You need to apply it regularly hrs in advance.
Used on my Trek SL6 Emonda with Ultegra groupset. I ride a fairly high mileage and have a regular and well established degreasing, cleaning, maintenance and oiling regime. I followed my normal regime and then used this oil for the first time.
OMG! I set out on a 100 kms ride and had to turn around after only 10 kms. The noise coming from the chain and cassette was unbelievable and completely unbearable. Squeak, squeak, crunch, grrrrr, squeak, crunch, It was akin to picking up an abandoned bike left in a field for a year and trying to ride it home.
Terrible. When I got home I re degreased the chain and cassette, applied some pretty cheap oil I had lying around and. perfect 🙂 I won’t dispute if this product actually does the job of lubricating the parts as it’s supposed to do, however, be warned, if you buy this oil better get yourself some headphones to go with it.
Couldn’t be more disappointed, Complete waste of money on what is supposed to be a premium product.
Muc-Off’s Dry Chain Lube is a highly versatile, dry weather chain oil with excellent infiltration qualities to ensure the lube seeps into each chain link for smooth and quiet shifting performance. Formulated to hold up in extreme conditions, the wax-based formula is durable and better yet, biodegradable, so it’s safe for you, your bike and the planet.
This product is good value and does the job. I think that more advice could be given with the product about how to use it. Even reference to on line instructions would be good. There are only a very few lines printed on the side of the bottle which also include general safety instructions.
As this is also in four other languages they hadn’t got room for detailed advice. As this was my first purchase my main problem was how to get the oil to come out of the bottle. I tried cutting off some of the end of the spout with no result.
Eventually I found that the spout could be unscrewed art the base revealing a pull off plastic seal. I suggest that opening instructions should be written on the side as well.
Not sure why REI is selling this at all. PFTE lubes do not work better, it just makes the problem of PFAS pollution worse. REI should do better. I noticed no improved performance with this product, imo the pfte is a gimmick, and unfortunately one with toxic consequences.
Lucas chain lube is a semi synthetic lubricant designed to meet the demand of today s high performance motorcycle chains and sprockets. Lucas chain lube is designed to penetrate deeply into the pins and bushing of the chains and provides excellent rust and corrosion protection as well as outstanding water resistance.
Lucas chain lube leaves and anti-friction protective film on the chain and sprocket that ensures minimum wear and minimum drag. It does not fling off, even at high speeds. Its thin film formula resists dust, sand and dirt contamination and minimizes gum formulation.
I bought this a week ago when I was planning a motorcycle road trip (I failed to plan in advance, so this was my only option on a Sunday). It flings. A lot. It is extremely runny, so a lot winds up on the pavement, and little clings to your chain.
I find it doesn’t tack up very well either, so I am unsure of just how much protection it offers 100km down the road after your apply it. Would I buy it again? Nope. Motul chain lube is my “go to” chain lube, as it actually stays where you spray it.
I suppose the lucas chain lube fills a hole when you are in a pinch and nothing else is available.
I was disappointed when I seen the chain lube sprays on foamy. Very messy to apply and after you ride the bike. Does not cling or last very long on the chain. I highly recommend trying Motul chain lube.
Awesome product that worked exactly as stated. Used this on a pottery slab roller chain and gear set and worked perfectly. Ideal since it resists dust and debris which you have plenty of in a pottery studio.
Ultra-clean and long-lasting bicycle chain lubricant formulated specifically for use in dry and dusty conditions. Advanced, surface-active formulation penetrates deeply and dries quickly to ensure effective protection while minimizing buildup of dust and grime.
Proprietary anti-wear additives minimize chain noise, enable smooth shifts under load and extend chain life. Waterproof formula is designed for dry conditions, but will effectively repel water and inhibit corrosion if used in wet conditions.
Formulated specifically for bicycle chains. Designed for dry and dusty conditions. Waterproof and corrosion resistant. Long-lasting protection and cleanliness. Enables smooth shifting. Minimizes chain noise.
Never got to try the product. Ordered and had it shipped to me but the liquid had leaked out and what a mess! Don’t advise having this item shipped. Product needs to be shaken before use and much of the contents had leaked out before it was shaken thus making the remaining product incomplete for use.
At first it looks like a light lube ,but, each and every time I use it – by it end of the ride the chain is very greasy and black dirty and need to soap clean it. I wouldn’t recommend it. Though it smell nice.
Our Classic ORIGINAL chain lube is a liquid plastic and through polymerization forms long-lasting plating on all chain surfaces. “Riding in” forms an extremely low-friction plating. Plating bonds to chain; can’t be washed off! Components stay cleaner, last longer, run quieter.
Extremely durable, outlasts all other chain lubes! Environmentally sensitive and saves money. To be applied sparingly unlike many other other lubes. Classic Lite and Original Bicycle Chain Lube (BCL) differ only in their concentration.
Original BCL is more concentrated for exceptional durability under the most challenging conditions. The two formulas are compatible and may be used interchangeably. You can confidently use Dumonde Tech’s Bicycle Chain Lube on all cables, pivots points, seals.
Safe on plastic, rubber, all seal materials. The product is designed to not harm your components. Eco-friendly and environmentally sensitive, our products are engineered to perform with minimal “carbon footprint” by not washing off in water, to use sparingly, lasts longer between applications, your drive train lasts longer.
Very good performer in the extreme cold conditions.
We used to use a different lube, but we were introduced to Dumonde tech on our bike team. It doesn’t attract and hold dirt and gunk like our previous lube. So it’s easier to clean the drivetrain, and the drivetrain also does not need to be deep cleaned as often! Really great stuff and so happy to have found it after 10 years of de-gunking our drivetrains constantly!.
I forgot my T9 on a trip to Doctor Park and picked up a vial of Dumonde Tech at a bike shop in the Gunny. It performed well the chain was quiet and shifted well. It also built up an admirable amount of gunk on the chain and cassette.
It’s still mostly full but ready to fill in as the backup chainlube.
This chain lube is good, but it does tend to attract road grime. I always clean my chain pulleys after each ride. Every 1000 miles or so, I remove my chain, soak in Simple Green, and then lubricate with Dumonde Tech Lite.
For dry riding conditions. Will not freeze in cold weather. Goes on wet, special polymers form a long-lasting dry film to protect your chain and repel dirt in arid or dusty conditions. Does not contain wax.
Specifically developed for bicycles and thoroughly tested by WD-40 scientists in partnership with IBD, pro bike mechanics and pro cyclists.
I have been riding a long time, bicycles. road MTB and now gravel, and own, and have owned many chain-driven motorcycles over the decades. First, do not use MC chain lubricant on bicycle chains and vice versa.
They are engineered for different chains/RPMs/conditions. Second, I use “DRY” on my gravel bike, and it works just fine in all conditions. I also like to keep my chain and cassette/deraliuer spotless and lubed between rides.
I don’t clean/degrease and lube after every ride, but no more than 3 rides of 25-30kms and then its time. not for everyone, but I’m a little OCD when it comes to my maintaining bikes. I ride mostly on a mix of grushed gravel and packed dirt, and combinations thereof.
The fine crushed gravel will mess up your drive-train in a hurry if you don’t pay attention. Finaly, I am not sure of the reference of the “citronelle smell” or odour is, but I can’t smell anything from this product.
And I do not have any medical issues, so I guess some peoples noses are more sensitive than others. In summation, I would say for the price, you will get a lot of use if used as directed. It is all dependant on how often you ride, where you ride and how hard you ride.
ProLink Chain Lube will not let dirt and grit stick to your chain – in wet or dry conditions. It greatly reduces friction and wear, allowing smoother operation of your chain and cables, and it will keep your chain and drive train area clean and seemingly drag free.
ProLink is a thin-bodied lubricant that uses MFR technology, a molecule which bonds to the metal surface. It does not build up or become tacky because it contains no solids like Teflon, wax, moly, graphite or plastic.
I ride my bike a lot– Close to 4000 miles a year. Which means I need to relubricate my bicycle chain more frequently than people who ride less than I do. So I did some simple math: a 4oz bottle of Pro Link costs about $13.
A big gallon jug like this has 128 ounces = 32 of those 4oz bottles. If I bought 32 4oz bottles I would need to spend $416. So I decided to spend just $132 for this gallon jug and save $284. Typically a 4oz bottle lasts me about 4 months of cycling.
So this gallon jug should be enough for me to continue riding my bike for the next 10 years if I keep riding my typical 4000 miles a year. And at my age, I still have several decades of riding left in my legs if I stay healthy, so in my case I think this is a good investment.
Note this economy works out only if you ride A LOT! If you don’t ride your bike as frequently as I do, stick with the smaller bottles.
Prolink ProGold is an excellent dry lube, Ive been using it for years with great results. Its not especially long lasting, I relube about every 100 miles, but all it takes is a quick chain wipe-down with a clean rag, followed by one drop of this lube on every chain roller, using the ProGold needle-tip luber.
Chain stays clean, dry, and lubricated. I get 4K miles out of each Campy Record 11 speed chain, keeping a chain clean and well lubricated is essential for maintaining a quiet and smooth shifting drivetrain.
I highly recommend using a needle tip applicator, and only lubricating the inner chain rollers, which is the only part of a chain that needs lubrication. A little goes a long long way, and avoids a build-up of grit and road grime from using too much lube.
A well lubricated bicycle chain is amazingly efficient. A poorly lubricated chain is less effficient and accelerates wear on not just the chain but front and rear gears. Some testing indicates that this may not be the absolute best chain lube on the market, but the difference between lubing and not lubing is bigger than the differences between the better chain lubes.
I have used this brand chain lube for years with great success, but always flinched at the cost. This bottle helps a LOT with the pain of the cost. And that means I lube more often. I CAN feel the difference in the drive train.
BTW: I got some needle oilers (3 PACK 1/2 OZ PRECISION HIGH QUALITY OILER BOTTLES NEEDLE MICRO TIP APPLICATOR ) when I got this bottle. The spray, on narrow pattern, is just right to refill small bottles.
And the needle oilers get just a drop or two on each link where it is needed, rather than all over the plates, where it only attracts grit. Net result: better lubrication and yet another cost saving, with less cleanup after each application.
Hot Wax Performance with the convenience of liquid applicator bottle SILCA lube utilizes the most lubricious additive in nan-scale Tungsten Di-sulfide SILCA Super Secret Chain Lube brings all of the super speed and silent running of a hot-melt wax-dipped chain to a drip applied wax (all of the benefits, none of the hassle!).
Secret Chain lube also utilizes the world’s fastest, most lubricious additive, nano-scale Tungsten Di-Sulfide. NanoPlatelet WS2 has less than 1/3 the dynamic coefficient of friction of PTFE and 1/4 that of Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) Who’s it for? The cyclist looking to maximize performance through friction reduction, or the cyclist who loves a silent running bicycle.
Applied to a new, thoroughly cleaned chain as instructed. First thing I notice is the curing time was much quicker than expected. I doubled lubed first time round. There’s quite a lot of excess drip even after one application so apply over a floor you don’t mind getting messy.
This is the only drawback I’ve found, the chain’s super smooth, runs quiet and shifts smooth. After only 120miles this is my go to for best bikes/best weather. I’ve been using ceramic speed UFO drip for the last year which is generally good but definitely leaves more of a residue on cassette, jockey wheels and chainrings.
As this is clear you can’t see the same flake off all over the frame and components as you get with the UFO. Although early days I can compare durability over a pretty small distance. In my experience UFO is about half way between applications at 150 miles, the chain begins to get noisier.
For the same distance the Silca has no noticeable loss or increased noise. I can’t comment on durability in wet conditions and its highly unlikely I ever will. That said I’d be far more confident if I was caught out using Silca over Ceramic speed.
Worth mentioning, both are streets ahead of Squirt but then so is the price. Overall highly recommended, I will be buying more to strip other chains on the good bikes and finding a use for the bottle and a half of UFO I still have.
I really hoped Super Secret Chain Lube would hold up to the hype and positive reviews. I followed the directions from Super Secret for all steps of new chain prep and lubing. Bottom line I couldn’t even get through a 20 mile ride without bike drive train problems.
I tried re-application several times and always with the same results. So if you ride dry dusty trails this lube is not for you. Maybe it works great on the road but not for mountain bikes. Ibis Ripley, XT components, Southern CA summer trail conditions.
Trying this based on the extensive articles by Cycling Tips David Rome. I use the solid wax in a slow cooker to do the first treatment, and then use this Super Secret drip lube to touch up on every other ride.
Note that for these waxes to truly shine, you MUST have a almost sterile clean to start with. Stripping off all factory oils/grease is tricky and requires a few rounds of cleaning with mineral spirits or citrus degreasers, and then a rinse with acetone.
Read the instructions from Silca, they are very handy.
Self-cleaning emulsifying agent allows for easy cleaning of chain with large doses of water Benefits of wet lube with cleaning abilities of a dry lube. Made using advanced bio-lubricant technology. Made in Canada Biodegradable, petroleum-free, non-toxic.
I think I got a bottle of this when it was somewhat new to MEC in summer of 2016. I used it on my mtn bike and my commuter. My commuter sees a 34km round trip daily. The lube dispenses like a motor oil consistency.
It sticks and gets pretty gummed up in clumps around chainring teeth and jockey/pulley wheel teeth. I find it does not just hose right off after dry riding, but does come off easily if the water is assisted with a small stiff brush.
I like it on the mtb and will continue to use it. I use wax on the road bike and my road bike only sees dry days; wax stays clean and lasts in those conditions on the road. On the commuter, after using it for past year and a half i finally figured it out! After any wet ride I hose it off: it all comes off and leaves a pretty darn clean drive train.
Brilliant. i was in the habit of ragging the chain off if the lube was relatively fresh (had not seen many rides) after each commute and reapplying only when really dried out or noisy (maybe once a week in dry and every couple wet rides).
But this whole hosing off changes everything. it means lubing more often but it also encourages a much cleaner drive train. It seems that rain and grit once mixed with it allows it to readily come off with a flush with the hose.
I’d use this lube over any other I have used in the past for commuting in the slop know as Vancouver weather.
Keeps your chain clean, it is nice to be able to clean off your drive train with some high pressure water and nothing else. I still sometimes run the chain cleaner with some bio cycle to really get it clean but overall this lube does a great job keeping the chain clean.
My previous lube was triflow and although it did a great job lubricating it was a mess to clean after. As far as a lube goes it seems to keep the chain quite quiet overall. It is thick so the ability for it to quickly penetrate into the links is suspect, I feel it needs to be worked in a little by cycling the chain, more than other lubricants.
If you ride in the rain at all you will find this lube will not last very long. Since it is easily removed by water, the constant beating the chain takes in wet conditions will take the lube off after a few rides.
Which means you have to relube a bit more often in those situations. I like that it is environmentally friendly and easy to clean. I don’t like having to re apply.
I cleaned my chain thoroughly with an orange bio cleaner and dried it fully, than applied wpl oil link by link. Went for a good ride and upon returning ran a wet rag on the chain by turning the crank and put the bike away.
Next day took the bike out and rear brake was squealing upon first corner, checked it out and it had spots of oil on it and the rim was splattered with infinitely small drops of black oil, obviously from the chain and sprocket.
Sprocket was real shiny with black oil film on it to. Upon finishing my ride, I then washed the chain down with several wet paper towel again and again, ever time the wet paper towel was deeply imbedded with black oil residue.
After 5-6 wet paper towel wash -up’s, I ran a dry paper towel on the chain and had a much better nearly dry result very little black oily silt left on it. So I’ve put the bike away till next ride tomorrow.
Now on the next few hundred KM no issues, but as soon as I reapplied the lube same result. So in recap very messy, black goop flys all over.
A ceramic-reinforced lubricant penetrates deep into the chain and protects the chain from breaking prematurely*. WD-40 Specialist Roller Chain Non-Fling Lubricant sprays on thin to penetrate deep into roller chains, inner chain links, pins and bushings, and then thickens to provide long-lasting lubrication, even with chains operating at a high RPM.
By penetrating deep into crevices, this formula helps protect the chain from rust and breakage. This roller chain lube’s ceramic-reinforced formula repels dirt and helps keep the lubricant from flinging off the chain during use.
Safe on metals, chains, sprockets, chain links and O-Ring chains. *based on proper chain maintenance extending the life of a chain. Proper maintenance for roller chain is cleaning and lubricating not only the external parts (chain and sprockets) but also the internal parts (chain links) of the chain.
I have been servicing Tire Changers and shop equipment for 36 years for the largest tool company in the world. WD-40 is an excellent lubricator and water displacement solution. It lubricates without leaving a tacky residue to attract dirt an other grime that will shorten the life of moveable components.
Having the strong flexible straw to apply an pinpoint the lube in areas that are hard to get to, those are generally the places needing lubrication the most. Other straw like applicator’s are lost within the 1st couple of uses.
I love WD-40 products!! I use this product several times on a stubborn glass sliding patio door. The out-door elements seem to make the railing of the door hard to slide spraying WD-40 on the railing works wonders.
Helps the door to slide effortlessly and keeps it lubed up. The Specialist lube is a have to have product around my home. I have a can in my home, car and tool box. There are numerous uses and times to spray WD-40.
I love the product!! I would recommend WD-40 to anyone.

I haven’t found any other product quite like this. I use it on motorcycle chains in the winter, when standard aerosol lubricants struggle to combat corrosion. Because it’s a very sticky, stringy oil it doesn’t throw off the chain like conventional oils.
It’s also easy to apply a run of lube while spinning the back wheel. There’s no overspray like with an aerosol – although to be fair, it doesn’t all stay on the chain, I do wipe off any excess.

There are a few different types of chain lube that work well in dry, dusty conditions. A dry lube is typically best for dry, dusty conditions because it will not attract and hold onto dust and dirt like a wet lube will.
A dry lube will also typically last longer than a wet lube in these conditions. A few good choices for dry, dusty conditions are White Lightning Dry Lube, Boeshield T-9 Dry Lube, and Pro Gold Dry Lube.
