    To degrease my chain I use degreaser. To lubricate it I use chain wax.

    WD40 is none of the above.

    I use it for flushing out cable outers, that is all.

  • WD40 is a water dispersant hence the letters WD . good old soapy water for cleaning the chain

    My first and last experience with WD 40 was to lube all the moving parts on my new Kona (when I got back into biking about 3 years ago). It did a fantastic job of flushing the white grease out of the external BB. Bearings collapsed about 2 weeks later, LBS received £90 of my hard earned cash to fix. It's now kept in a separate room from my bikes!
