|What is every one using for chain/ mechanicals lube?
It was 60 today in MA. It's the first time in months I was out in shorts. No long johns, tights and a jacket. Wow.

|I envy you mackgoo-I live in Minnesota and it's colder than a witches..well you know. Anyhoo, I like White Lightining's Race Day for a chain lube. Great for wet and dry weather and keeps the chain clean.|

|Pro Link chain lube (oil). Apply and wipe of excess. If you don`t wipe off the excess it splatters everywhere.|

|You don't find the oil to be a grit magnet?|

|I would rather clean my chain/bike more often than have to clean off wax even once. It`s less work to clean up after using Prolink. I do enough work cleaning White Lightning off of customers bikes that I can no longer stand the stuff. I find that even Clean Streak doesn`t always clean off built up White Lightning . Beside, Prolink seems to attract less dirt then most other oils ( I also like Pedros Dry Lube).|

|Schwinn Factory Chain wax or White Lightning on the chain. Phil's grease on bearings and Phil's tenacious oil on other moving parts.|

|Found this lube while shopping for food in a supermarket. It is not like a WD40.( I don't think there is Kerosene mixed in) Really smoothens out the drive train but you have to be carfull not to apply too much. A lot cheaper than current bike specific lube but might be hard to find nowadays because Slick 50 does not make them anymore.( That's why I bought 3 cans)|| |
