Too many choices...

by Al'76   May 21, 2013  

Sorry if, as I suspect, this has been done to death already but could do with a little bit of advice please.

Finish Line Ceramic Wet Chain Lube is my winter go to lube of choice; runs smooth & quiet and good durability. However, even applied sparingly, gets really mucky really quick....board of chain cleaning Yawn

Can anyone offer a recommendation for a lube that performs well (quiet, smooth, protects drive train) but doesn't attract quite as much muck please?

Wet lube is great for the winter, but just makes the bike look a mess....

White lightning clean ride if you don't want to clean the chain as often, finish line do a dry teflon one too

Thanks Jim.
Do you have experience of either product?
Was erring towards Finish Line Ceramic Wax in preference to White Lightening Clean Ride purely cos of good experience with the brand.
My only real concern is longevity...any idea how often you need to reapply?
Also, if caught in a downpour on a long ride, do you basically end up finishing the ride with an unprotected drive train?
