Chain-L lube

I clean my chain and relube at least once a week. I used to do so after every ride. I found that doing it frequently prevented the build up and made the job fairly quick and easy. Now I usually do it before my long weekend rides.

I’m using ProLink lube. It was recommended by RoadBikeRider.com and is available locally.And I like it. Now RoadBikeRider.com has a review of a new thicker lube you might want to try. Since I don’t have a quick release link, I’ll probably stick with ProLink.–Corrie
