Default Re: Chain lube/maintenance

I recently reviewed advice from a chain manufacturer which declared lubricant which is applied, and runs off is superior to lubricant that clings.
If it clings, it will attract road grit and contribute to wear.

Unfortunately, we must deal with the facts.

Chain drive is an efficient method to transmit power.
It must be lubricated.
The lube is messy.

Such is life.
