    Rock N Roll Extreme lube in cold weather

    I used RnR Extreme 12 years ago, but haven't used it again until now. Kept the bottle indoors so it wouldn't freeze or anything. Pulled out the MTB this afternoon, put it in the stand, and proceeded to lube the chain as per the instructions.

    The stuff gunked up almost immediately. Shook the bottle some more, but no real change. Checked the thermometer, and it said 43f. I know that's pretty cold compared to, say, So Cal, but really? The stuff was the consistency of uncooked spaghetti sauce. The label says not to store it below 40f, but when I applied it, I was getting chainsuck and spotty shifting in the stand.

    Has anyone had positive results using this in temps below 50f?
