Default Re: Chain lube and rust

Thanks for the tip GearNut, if I see some around I'll give it a shot, but TBH I'm not gonna hold my breath lol - the sodium chloride/calcium chloride mix they're using on the roads now is brutal, I've never seen anything like the rapid damage it causes, even wet rock salt is tame in comparison...

The annoying bit is it doesn't seem to help with the ice any more than regular salt does, not that I even like salt - I prefer sand & light gravel for below zero weather (salt melts, dilutes & refreezes to glare ice duh), but that's another rant altogether
