Already producing a successful and comprehensive range of oils and unguents for your bicycle the Juice Lube boys from the west country now aim to keep your body well lubricated with their new Chapeau chamois cream.
Juice Lubes Ceramic Juice is an interesting potion brewed for dry to moist conditions rather than the ravages of winter it doesn’t wash off with the first rainfall, tames the most demanding of derailleur transmissions and a little goes a surprisingly long way to boot. However, cleanliness is paramount- not only prior to the initial application but regularly wipe the sided-plates weekly to prevent the excess turning into an efficient grinding paste.
The marketing blurb for this lube is remarkably plain - "Chain Juice Wet is a wet conditions chain lube which does what a wet lube should – it stays on your chain and keeps lubricating in wet conditions. Simple." Which is a nice change from the usual flowery guff that lube sellers use to hawk their wares. In return I'll be equally plain. This is the best lube I've used. Ever.
Juice say they developed their Viking Juice chain lube after Scandiwelsh roadie legend Magnus Backstedt told them how unimpressed he'd been with that his chain was grumbling during Paris-Roubaix. Now, according to the Juice website "Maggy doesnt have to re-oil his chain on long rides. This makes him happy". Well good for him but his definition of a long ride doesn't go much beyond 140 miles, because that's about as long as this stuff lasts for.
Juice Lubes' Dirt Juice is a very powerful degreaser and bike cleaner and the twin pack is pretty good value as well. You'll need to be a bit careful with it in its concentrated form but it does a super job of removing even the thickest grub from chains and mechs.
The twin pack gets you a litre of Dirt Juice Super Gnarl - the strong stuff - and a litre of Less Gnarl which is the same product diluted ten times. The two bottles come with a single spray head which you'll need to swap between them for different jobs but that's not a big deal.
