    New question here. KMC chain: Which lube to use?

    Hi,

    I have the KMC 9 speed gold/ti chain. My questions are:

    1. which lube/grease do you guys use for this chain?
    2. I'd like to clean my chain every weekend and was wondering if it is ok (safe) to remove the chain from this missing link every weekend?



    Thanks!

    Pick what ever lube you want. Chain-l, Bar & Chain oil, Finish Line, Rock & Roll. Find what works for the conditions you ride it.

    And the Missing link will be ok for multiple on/off, but why do you clean your chain every weekend?

    All you need to do is run the chain through a dry rag to knock the grit/grime off the outer surface then re-lube as needed.

    Thanks frdfandc!

    I just found out how easy to remove/connect this missing link is and now I want to clean them all the time. I use to just do what you had mentioned but since it is super easy to disconnect, I might as well pull them out and brush the crap off of it.

    Any lube will work the same as if it was on the cheapest chain available. If you use a dry lube, it will wash off and lose it's effectiveness just as quickly as if it was an a cheap chain.
