What an unfortunate title for a blog post! I thought I would start with that. Now if you thought this was something else I am sorry to disappoint you and if you did think it was something else...well really!!
After cleaning the chains on my Brompton bicycles I used to simply give them a generous coating in GT85 and that was pretty much it. This didn't last long because as soon as there was a bit of moisture in the air you could almost hear the chain grinding away.
For a few years I have been using 'Pure Dry Lube' which I have found to be pretty good. More recently I bought another dry lube by 'Finish Line.'
For the moment at least my newer addition seems to be pretty good. Last week I was caught in one of the heavier showers and my chain held up pretty well and there wasn't that grinding sensation that means the chain has run dry.
What do you on your bicycle? Do you have an opinion on dry / verses wet? Let me know by leaving a comment.
Stay safe out there people!!
