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?
