    This one has been covered ad nauseam. Here are just a few links...

    Everybody is usually very opinionated on which is the best chain lube and will have quite lengthy rationales behind their logic. These threads usually sound like a he said/she said argument.

    Now for my opinion and lengthy rationale ... I use 3in1 oil. It's simply a light machine oil or sewing machine oil. It's cheap, can be found anywhere and works as well as anything else I've used. The down side is it is a little messy. Spray a little Simple Green on a rag and wipe off the chain a couple times a week and it's fine.

    Hey, thanks for the links. I was just wondering what people use to get some suggestions so I could try some of them out that I havent used. I have also been looking around and people seem to oil about every 2 weeks, woops! I do it about once a month but I should probablly be doing it more often then.

    [lang=no][Quote = elmosferrari; 1401090] Hei, takk for lenkene. Jeg bare lurte på hva folk bruker for å få noen forslag så jeg kunne prøve noen av dem ut at jeg har ikke brukt. Jeg har også vært å lete rundt og folk ser ut til å olje ca hver 2 uker, woops! Jeg gjør det omtrent en gang i måneden, men jeg bør nok gjøre det oftere da.
