|Has anyone tried useing a Teflon based lube such as Triflow or Finsh Line as a first application to a clean chain and then before each ride applied a lube such as Prolink?Would mixing lubes cause any problems with dirt or gunking up the derailer?|

|First question, why?
Why not just use the Prolink as your only lube? Also, assuming they are compatible (ie the teflon-based lube is not water-based), the continued reapplication of Prolink will flush out the initial teflon particles from the teflon-based lube.
No problem in mixing, just curious as to why?

|Since ProLink, properly applied, will often last 350-400 miles, why would you apply it before each ride? The solvent in ProLink will chase out or dilute the other lubes, so what do you accomplish with this?|| |
