There are wet lubes and then there are wet lubes, Chain-L’s No 5 is definitely the latter.

A thin coating lasted for ages, spreading throughout the chain, then to the rings, even ending up covering oversocks and chainstays. It does a great job of keeping the chain running smoothly and quietly, and yet doesn’t seem to attract a lot of dirt.

We did, though, notice chains showing signs of wear earlier than we felt they should, given the type of riding we were doing.

Verdict

It certainly stays on in? the rain and it’s a bugger to get the chain clean, two or three uses of the? degreaser bath were required to shift it all – it’s that clingy.
