Chain Care

Post by Flappy » Sat Jun 27, 2009 5:15 pm

Please could anyone tell me the best way to keep a chain. I clean it after every race with WD40 and a toothbrush but I am a bit stuck after that in regard to how it should be, as in wet or dry. I started using wax but not sure what it does or if it is any good. I guess days are gone of keeping a chain well oiled and greased.

Regards

Depends what u use to lube it. In the summer i use wurth dry chain lube. For winter i think wax is better, it looks bloody awful but protects better i feel, then come summer clean all the toad off and start with the nice dry lube :)
