    I came on here to ask the same question.
    I wipe my chain maybe once or twice a week depending on mileage with an old towel. I also take the chain off once a month or 2 and degrease it along with the rear cassette.

    I currently use purple extreme lube, but am looking to try something else as it seems to pick up a lot of crap and doesn't last as long as i'd like it too.

    white lightning is that awful "cider"....probably not too good a lube, would probably dissolved the chain.

    Something else with lightning I forgot.

    Maybe they are but have used both, white lightning looks more watered down lube, not very good. Finish line dry is similar but more lubey.
