    Chain Maintenance

    What is your preference for normal street riding:

    1) Chain Lube; or
    2) Chain Wax

    Which works the best?? How often do you grease your chain? Your 2 cents worth please.

    i prefer bike tech and mods!! it works best for getting your bike tech related question answered. i don't lube my X-ring chain. i clean it with either WD-40 or kerosene and call it a day. i clean it after i ride in the rain and it's going to be dry for awhile.
    That that doesn't kill us forces us to live with a busted up bike!!

    Maxima spray on stuff in a black can. At least every 500k (usually after a long ride).
    If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.

    I'm not one to bash reposts. So here are some other threads. Other people have some interesting comments.

    -- I am using Chain Wax right now. Gonna try something else next time. Chain seems to be too dry.
    -- I always lube the chain after a ride while the chain is still warm.
    -- The interval is 500 to 1,000 kilometers or when you see the chain is dry.

    i just chain lube(the spray kind) because liquid by definition will take up the space of the container it is in. Meaning it can go anywhere. The grease or wax is a solid so in theory it wont go into the joints as well. Thats how i see it.

    Chain wax all the time... unless you like cleaning all the shit that oil flings all over the place.

    i spray/clean the chain after every couple rides... and after riding in the rain if that happens. I also adjust it every few rides to keep it at the right tension.

    This goes for all my bikes, and my chain/sprockets last for what seems like forever
