Hi All

had my bike for a few weeks now and I am going to give it a good clean , so I plan to degrees the chain and then apply some new lub , and am thinking should I use dry or wet lub :?: , as I understand it you don't get as much dirt on the chain with dry lub

are there any tips for using it at all :?:

Thanks for taking the time to read my post and sorry for the silly question

    Wet weather use wet lube and dry weather use dry lube
  • As above.dont degrease though as you will remove factory lube thats deep in the places you cant get to.

    Squirt all year round, just apply a bit more often in nasty weather.

    At the minute I've got dry lube on bike chain as its dried up a little and wet just makes a black mess over everything, leave that for winter.

    Have two bottles one of each in shed and switch between as needed.

    ^ This. Best lube I've found for all conditions and doesn't act as a magnet for dirt.

    Another squirt fan, double application for when the weather is bad.
