Rock Roll exstreme VS Chain-L chain lube
I ride in denmark, (just beside sweeden), we see most conditions, muddy, rain, a bit snow, but nothing really exstreme, -otherwise i stay home !
I have been testing, the wax-basede lube "Squirt", it seem to last for like 50 km, but the real downside is rain and colder temp, has turned my chain totally rust-red.....
I also used some german chain oil "dynamic" very good, smooth, but chain would need
degreasing every 8 ride.
So i am looking for a oil:
One that does not go totally black, and need chain degreaser
Making drivetrain last
And i dont mind lubing after every ride and wipe down
Better a bit messy, than thin and not lasting
I read some reviews about theese two , please let me know!
Chain-L is heavy duty and long lasting. It does tend to attract a little dirt, but it lubes very well and really stays put. I love it for wet conditions.

I have been riding rain or shine using Chain-L. It has done a great job of keeping my chain quiet and shifting great. Absoultly no chain suck or missed shifts. Its not the cleanest lube in the world, but it does what its suppose to do. When its time to apply more lube, the chain will let you know. It does it in a gradual way also, not just all of a sudden its dry and sounding like a tank rolling down the road. Once applied the correct way (chain off the bike and degreased) it last suprisingly long time.
Stay thirsty my friends
Best wet weather lube on the planet, won't wash off...silicone based and thin like water so its works exceptionally well in cold conditions. I've tried them all, petroleum based lubricants do not compare.
You won't find it at your local bike shop.
