Chain Care

(1/2) > >>

Keep your chain and derailer in good shape. Get  " The Grunge Brush"  online. Its shaped to clean chain and parts.  From a bike shop get a de-greaser and chain lube.  Keeping the chain clean will help shifting stay smooth and chain/derailer last longer.

What degreaser and chain lube do you use?

I lightly clean and lube my chain every time I ride in slushy snow and/or rain. I also, every spring, take off my chain and totally clean and lube my chain and sprockets.
I use a rag to wipe the chain off and an old toothbrush to scrub my chain. I use whatever lube is available from the bikeshop. I don't remember what it's called but the current lube I have is designed specifically for use in wet weather.

I'll be honest I'm pretty bad about this. I only use dry lube currently that is Muc Off's dry lube. It's not too wet here which is why I use it. Most of the year I applied but once every three or four weeks. When it's raining it's every couple of days I put it on. I don't suggest people follow my chain maintenance.
