Lubes & Cleaning Buying Guide

When it comes to keeping your bicycle in tip-top shape, lube and cleaning products are essential. But with so many products on the market, it can be hard to know which ones are right for you. Here is a quick guide to help you choose the best lube and cleaning products for your bicycle.

Bicycle lube is used to keep the chain and gears running smoothly. There are 2 components to chain lube, solvent and coagulant. Dry and wet lubes will differ in their ratio of solvent and coagulant, where dry lube will have more solvent and less coagulant, whereas wet lube will be the reverse. This is because a dry lube will want to attract less dust, dirt, and debris that will be kicked up in drier conditions that are found in southern California, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona. Wet Lubes will be charged more with repelling water and moisture, often found in places more up north and in Europe. But the location will not be the only deciding factor, a lot of avid riders will keep stock of both wet and dry lubes for wet and dry conditions so their drivetrains are shifting smoothly no matter the trail conditions. But no chain will shift well if it isn't properly maintained.

Cleaning your bicycle regularly will help prolong its life and prevent premature wear. A good cleaner will remove dirt, grease, and grime without damaging the components. For best results, use a cleaner specifically designed for bicycles, most of the time cleaners or degreasers will be labeled bike-specific, however, most non-corrosive cleaners will do the job just fine. Cleaners will be primarily for the frame, shock, fork, wheels, cranks, and other bigger, un-lubed parts, and a degreaser should be used on the chain, cassette, and chainrings to remove the old lube in prep for a fresh coat. Keeping a bike cleaned regularly can profoundly increase its lifespan.

By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your bicycle always performs at its best.
