Wax On. Wax Off.

I just past a milestone... 1000 miles on a chain that has NEVER had any sorta liquid/spray lube touch it's links.

It is an SRAM 9speed with the gold 'powerlink' - and has been boiled in my special concoction of paraffin/bees wax, a shot of powdered graphite, and a squeeze of teflon grease - once at purchase, and once at 500 miles..... I just took it off for it's next bath - and guess what.... my hands are clean, my links are silver, and I'm not sure I'm not being too cautious - no squeaks, no kinks, no errors.....
