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.

use it in all my bikes and it's very good. Cheap to boot and I haven't found anything better and I've tried most. 60 in NJ yesterday too, beautiful day !!!

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).

Chain and cables - Finish Line Krytech (Like a mix of paraffin and White Lightning).

bearings - Phils Wood Grease

Schwinn Factory Chain wax or White Lightning on the chain. Phil's grease on bearings and Phil's tenacious oil on other moving parts.
Slick 50 One LubeMitch2

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)
