Can't see paying that for recreational riding.
I've been using Rock N Roll red for a number of years. Can't seem to kill the bottle. Been planning to move to blue, but....

I've been using Pedro's Dry lube for years.. Plus side, it doesn't get gucky. Downside, not so durable in wet conditions. I don't care..I hate the guck and would rather just buy a new chain every year..

90wt gear oil applied lightly with an old toothbrush. Then just wipe down chain. Bicycles, street motos, dirt motos.
Cheap and works as well as anything, better than most. Stop paying boutique lube prices!
(It's what most chain manufactures recommend)

I’ve been using T-9 for a few years. How does it compare to things like Rock n Roll?

Prolink. Net loss of crud after application and wipe. Loyal.

I seem to keep going back to R'nR Gold no matter what else I try. I probably go through a little more of this lube than some of the others I've tried simply because it's a little less durable but I hardly ever ride in conditions that demand a goopier, wetter type lube. I do,however, get a little mental flashback to the 80's when I get a wiff of the original Tri-Flow..:drool:

Finish Line dry lube in the spray can. Reasonably priced, super easy to apply. I don't race so for me it's about easy peasy bike preservation.

Hard to beat Rock N Roll Gold or White Lightning Epic bu, I hadn't heard of squirt before! t I really like the white lightning cleaner. Note the efficacy of olive oil. until it gets dirty.



here's a lab test for efficiency

testing after application but before riding

interesting test because they look at chain performance before and after use

However, the winner overall is SQUIRT as mentioned above by @EBG18T. BTW- you can order this from Amazon in the shop size or 12 oz.

After reading that article, I'm breaking out the waxing tools. Red white or blue?


Ski related after all. ;-)
