Lubricating your Chain – What Lubricant to choose & How Best to Apply it

We were all beginner cyclists at some time and we’ve all at some stage been guilty of either applying too much or too little lubricant to our chain, resulting in either a gunked up black mess of a chain or an annoyingly squeaky drivetrain.The below video from GCN is a handy guide to help you first of all, decide what lubricant or lube to choose and then, how best to apply it. The result should be that your chain will be cleaner, quieter and will last longer. It’s a small thing that we often neglect but spending 5 minutes a week to correctly maintaining your chain will make your ride more enjoyable and will save you money, as you won’t need to replace your chain or worse, your drivetrain components as often.
