I've been using an old crockpot and wax for my chains but my velodrome (Lexus Velodrome in Detroit) noticed some slick waxy patches on the track that they suspected might have been the result of wax flaking off of waxed chains. It's easy wipe down the outside of the chain while the wax is still hot, but it can really be difficult to get all the excess wax out from the inside the links. The Finish Line Dry lube seems to do the trick to lube the chain without slinging flakes or dripping lube on the track. I still like my crockpot full of wax for my road and grave bikes.
I've used Finish Line Dry chain lube for many years on all my bikes (road, tandem, ebike). I like that is somewhat dries out so that is collects less road grime than wet lube products. I also use it on many things (creaky door hinges, anything that has light friction that needs lube.
I have been using Finish Line dry lube on my road bike chain for about two years. It attracts less dirt than the wet lube I had been using (Finish Line ceramic). The only "con" is that you have to apply it more frequently, every 100 miles, and it is not as good (I am told) in wet conditions. You have to apply it more liberally than a wet lube, because the liquid is not the lubricant, it's a volatile solvent that has the lubricant suspended in it, which evaporates out after depositing it on and in the chain.
I rely on Finish Line Dry to keep my beach bikes operational. Use it before and after every ride. The salt and sand are brutal on all of the bike's moving parts, and FLD keeps things humming.
Love Finish Line products and this does not disappoint. Wet Triflo was always messy and attracted dirt. This product lasts longer, and the drive train and casette stays cleaner, much more so and lasts longer. And works well in the rain where other dry lubes do not.
Really smooth lube that goes on easily and doesn't attract a lot of road grime. Very easy to clean. Highly recommended for dry, dusty conditions.
Gave only four stars to Finish Line Dry lube, because it needs wax along with Teflon. No problem: Brand X is a dry lube with wax, so a half and half mixture gave me a perfect combination.
First time using this lubricant. After a few chain lubes, I found it worked well, but didn't last quite as long as my usual lubricant. Decent, but not quite good enough to consider switching over.
Its great no dirt build up, runs quiet, actually seems to prolong the life of my chains. Its great I love it!!
This is my standard day-to-day lubricant. I re-apply it every week or so, depending on the weather. Keeps things quiet and slick. It's very low viscosity, so it can be a challenge to get hard to reach areas without making a huge mess.
I like the teflon lube because it seems to stay on better in the heat of Las Vegas area. It does not attract sand and grit to the chain.
Doesn't last as long as other wet lubes I've used. Drive train is very quiet for first ride after application.
Its not from a sexy brand, but it just freaking works. I keep coming back to this lube because its durable in the dry and doesnt attract a lot of dirt. It will wash off pretty quick in the rain though.
