|What is the most DURABLE chain lube||rpicayo|
Jun 12, 2001 8:03 PM
|I would like to clean and lube a chain and then not have to worry about it for a while under regular use. I don't anticipate taking it out in the rain or anything like that, just something I won't have to keep reapplying after every couple uses. Any Suggestions?

|I use "Schwinn Factory Chain Wax" cause I have an old Bicycling Magazine test article that rated it amongst the best at durability and lube ability/slickness...and they compared a BUNCH of chain lubes for road and dirt riding.
It does seem to pick up dirt/grime though, and I rarely ride in bad weather (never if I can avoid it!)
If you hear of something else great, let us know!

|Hey read the reviews of this stuff on this site and check out Bicycling magazine site, they rated it #1 as well. This stuff is unbelievable and I don't know how it works but it does. It lasts a long time and the chain is dead silent. Just clean old stuff off thoroughly before you apply and it will be the best stuff you can use. I bought it at Nashbar.com. Much better than White Lightening, Pedros etc, I've tried them all. Prolink has a website as well explaining how it is different than other lubes. One of my biggest cycling finds in the over 15 years of riding.

|Agreed. You can buy it on their web-site, too. (At least you used to be able to. My lbs stocks it now, so I buy it from them.) http://www.progoldmfr.com|

|The key to ProLink is to apply it SPARINGLY. If you slop it on you will get a lot of gunk build up, even if you wipe it off.
Really clean your chain of old lubricants before applying.
I stopped using ProLink and used Boeshield for awhile. One day I did a ProLink lube and really noticed a different, buttery smoothness...I haven't gone back since...
