Oiling your chain is one of the simplest, most common, and, arguably, one of the most important bike maintenance jobs. And, although just grabbing some chain lube, lubing your chain and riding might seem adequate, there are now several different chain lubes on the market. The differences between these lubes will – depending on the conditions that you ride in and the type of riding that you do – help to improve the performance of your drivetrain, increase the lifespan of your components, and, potentially cut down on the amount of time that you spend degreasing and re-greasing your bike.
