I use this lube on all my bikes, mountain and road. Have for many years. For dry dusty conditions as in Colorado I think this is the perfect lube. Provides very good lasting lubrication. I will occasionally refresh the chain between washes and find that it loosens up dirt very nicely. Appreciate the biodegradable friendliness also.
For the price it's unbeatable. I pray it never goes off the market!
I use this on my trainer bike mostly as it doesn't make the mess the longer lasting lube I use on the road does. It lasts long enough for me on the trainer. I don't use it as directed, which is a cleaner first then lube. To me it works fine to wipe the chain down with a towel, then put a drop on each roller then run it through all the gears and then wipe the excess off the chain. When I used it outdoors it would last about a week, or around 200 miles in dry and paved road surfaces. I use it as my rest stop lube on ultra distance gravel rides too and it lasts long enough to get to the next rest stop .
I've been using prolink for a long time. In the past I've done a lot of ultra marathons but in recent years nothing over 125 miles. The prolink goes on easy and keeps the chain and drive train very clean. Of course I always wipe chain with a cloth before and after applying. Simply put it does not attract grime like many other lubes.
I don't quite trust it for the longer rides, opting then for a wax based lube or taking the prolink with me on the ride. But again, for up to 125 miles, no problem.
For the above reasons it is not the best pivot point lube but if you take good frequent care to maintain your ride and apply it often, say once every five to ten rides, it will serve you well there too.
I've tried several different brand in the last 9 years and this stuff seem to makes my drivetrain (2018 Shimano 105) run quieter and smoother than w/ the other oils.
This is how I use it. After a ride ( usually 40 + miles, all road, and moderate hill climbing ), I wipe the chain down and put a drop on each bushing, spin it slowly for 30 seconds, wipe then I'm done. Makes my bike shift like a brand new Di2. :-) Once you get the hang of it, hardly takes anytime. I ditched the messy, medieval chain cleaner device once I started the routine w/ P Gold.
All around good lube that isn't too thick and doesn't make an obnoxious mess of my chain, especially if I'm good about giving it a proper wipe down. Sometimes I mix up triflo or dumonde tech heavy with this stuff when I want, well, a little more durability and a little less sticky. Maybe I just mix up snake oil, who knows?
Been using this fluid for many years and like the easy way it flows into the links. Only needs about a monthly re-application as it tends to dry out over time. Also use it for other areas on the bike that require lube every once and a while.
I've been using ProGold for many years, it's the best I've found. I'm averaging over 4k year mostly commuting. This is for a road and cyclocross bikes, typically reapplying every 200 miles or so... with doing this and keeping the chain fairly clean I average around 3.5k to 4k per chain (10 and 11 speed). This is in a dusty but dry environment (Phoenix). A little goes a long way, so don't go crazy and be sure to wipe the chain down after application - good stuff.
I'm new to the ProGold ProLink lube - I prefer a dry lube but was looking for something that would actually last in the dusty conditions where I liveride. ProGold is great - super light on the chain - and lasts for a couple rides - in full summer conditions on gravel roads.
I'm new to ProGold lube. Previous user of finish line dry and tri-flow. ProGold is light and effective. I'm using it on a roadgravel bike in dry dusty conditions. It does not attract dirt (like tri-flow), it actually lasts for a hundred miles of riding (unlike finish line dry) and handles being hosed down after a ride without needing reapplication. It's my new favorite chain lube.
This was the first time I ordered this type of chain lube and I immediately became a fan. This lube is much thinner than the other chain lube I used previously (White Lightning Clean Ride) and seems to be much more effective in improving shifting and reducing chain noise. This has become my go-to and I will be buying again soon.
