What is the most DURABLE chain lube(6 posts)

What is the most DURABLE chain luberpicayo

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!
Buy Prolink lube without a doubtLazyrider

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 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.)
ProLink Application TipMeDotOrg

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...
