This lube is very long lasting. I use it on my MTB and the bike that sees the most rain on the road. It does turn black and can be a little messy early on but a quick wipe between lubes and it works like a charm. Perfect for wet weather and dirty conditions. If you are obsessed with a silvery clean chain, you won't like it. If you like a quiet chain and aren't prone to constant lubing, you will.
