Chain Lube
« on: April 09, 2018, 03:01:31 PM »
I clean and lube my chain regularly using Wurth Dry Lube but the sides of the chain soon show signs of surface corrosion.

What products do other folk use to prevent corrosion ? other than Scott oilers which I dont want.

I personally don't worry about it. It's a consumable.

It gets a bit of dry lube after a wash and that's about it.

Same here, I run a clean but oily rag along the sides of the chain to take off any hint of surface corrosion and then put the Wurth back on again. I'd be more concerned if it was the rollers getting corroded.

I've been using a Dupont chain product in an aerosol can and applying generously with a Grease Ninja.

So far, I've got a nice, shiny chain.  :152:

I use an oiler on the XR but the other bikes are treated to XCP professional. Stays in place with very little throw off.

Any other chain Wurth is fine but the stock Regina is just shite you’ll need WD chain wax.
