I figured that's what's they a really for is dirt bikes. Reading above some have some really dirty chains. Mine does not get dirty enough to require a brush


Donte: I did not know that was their regular price I just remember seeing it on the flyer the other day. Sneaky putting it as a "sale price".

Cycle gear is just like J C penny. Doesn't matter when you go in there everything is "ON SALE!"

There's never 1 day out of the year or one item that isn't on sale 36 days a year. Especially their "bilt" gear...it's always at least 60% off.

I used tears from a dying unicorn to lube my chain. One application lasts longer than the bike itself.

Use diesel. it's comical when i see people use wd40 and argue about it without knowing the chemical breakdown of the solvent; those will mess up your orings as well. the cleaners they sell will add up $$, and gasoline is just no-no as it can destroy orings in a year. a gallon of diesel lasts me like a year. re-use it over and over again, so far you got something to catch it from wasting on the floor while cleaning. RINSE with garden hose before lubing with motul 1 (in the black can). other lubes are dirt magnets.
there's more high tech rubber-friendly options I can say, but diesel is the easiest to obtain.
I'm a diesel/hydraulic mechanic.

Just bought a case of Motul lube and cleaner because of this thread.

Thanks, y'all!

I have always used Kerosene for cleaner. Bel-Ray super clean or PJ1 blue label to lube.
