Velonews recently had an article about a chain lube that actually impregnated in the chain surface to make it smoother. Anyone know the name of the lube?

That article was about ProLink Chain Lubricant. It should be available at your bike shop. I've used it for quite a while and really am pleased with the results. Chains stay clean and last longer. Works great on cables also.
MUCH THANKS!!! nmWheelsuker

Am I the only person who thinks this is not better or worse than any other oil? Personally, I like Finish Line better. Attracts much less dirt.

But what the hell, doesn't cost much to try it.

Nothing new about ProLink. Tried it two years ago and didn't like it for a number of reasons including noise.
I like Boeshield T-9 in the dropper bottle. But I don't think there is a "perfect" chain lube, I say try several and use what you like. Some of the "home brew" formulas are probably as good as the bike specific lubes.
Tried that as wellpmf1

Three parts mineral spirits, one part motor oil. Worked very well except it attracted dirt readily. Can't beat the price. Its all just oil after all.
