|I started with some Teflon lube years ago, moved to Boeshield, then Pro Gold, which I've used for about 2 years.
A couple of months ago, a guy in a bike shop raved about Rock 'n Roll lube. "Okay", I said, and bought a bottle. I took it home a looked at the bottle. "Rock 'n Roll Lube?", I thought to myself, "sound a little cheezy". Thinking I had just bought the flavor of the month, I threw it in my 'bike junk' box and forgot about it.
Two weeks ago I visited a shop where I know and trust the mechanic. I asked him about lubes and he started raving about Rock 'n Roll. I decided to try it.
Clean the chain and cassette well, and apply the lube liberally. Spin in around to work it in and completely dry the chain. The stuff seems to last longer without collecting as much dirt as Pro Gold. I'm only a couple of hundred miles into it, but so far it looks very good.
I'm using 'Absolute Dry', which is a Road Only formula. For Mountain Bikes there is something called 'Extreme'.
Has anyone else out there used this stuff? What did you think? (And, just to be clear, I don't work for the company or the distributor or anything. )

|I recently asked about lubes in general, and a few people recommended R&R. Sounds like good stuff.|

|My friends and I have been using it for 2 years and we love it. All the lube products are great and perform as claimed.|

|Rock'n Roll Lube is an excellent lube as is Pro-Link. I have used them both and, as I have said before, these lubes will keep your chain well lubed and clean if you follow the instructions.
I live in the Boston area and have been using Slick-N-Dry from Slick Willy Bike Lube Co. I find it keeps my drivetrain both quieter and cleaner than R-n-R or Prolink. Very subjective evaluation, but just another idea.
I know it is in a few Boston area bike shops and the guy who started it is a mad scientist type who also rides/races. I tried it after not being able to get Prolink easily and on the recommendation of several riders and wrenches. Excellent stuff and I recommend it, but Rock'n Roll is also excellent. Can't go wrong with either.
