Strengths:    Well it lubes

Weaknesses:    Oily and sticky, attracts a ton of dirt. Chain sounds like a coffee grinder

Bottom Line:   
Typical oil / ptfe based lube. For me in the dry some sort of wax lube is the only way to go. Only bought this because the bike shop was out of Finish Line Ceramic Wax

Strengths:    Seems to last a couple of rides. The applicator and viscosity of the lube make it easy to apply so theres less waste.

Weaknesses:    Seems to shed large dirt particles but seems to hang on to really fine particles.

Bottom Line:   
I'm trailing this lube because White Lightening has become expensive and you have to use a lot of it for it to be effective, so a local bike shop (Pedal Hedz) suggested I try Muc Off Dry.
So far I like it but it seems to hang onto fine dirt particles, I didn't see that level of contamination when I used White Lightening, It definitely applies better than WL and there is less waste. Muc Off needs 3 hours or so to set up so apply it right after a ride otherwise it gets thrown everywhere.
When I clean the chain I notice a lot black in the stuff coming off, that being said it does come out of the chain when you clean it, so I have been cleaning the chain a little more often.
I'm going to keep using it and go through another bottle or two before I make a final decision on it.

Strengths:    quite, relatively clean, does not attract grit

Weaknesses:    must apply in advance of ride, lasts about 60-80 miles

Bottom Line:   
I use white lightning on my mountain bike, which I ride for no more than 10 mile at a time. Works great except not very good at keeping rust away and doesn't last very long (I never really determined how long it will last, I just apply a little after each ride). On my road bike, however, I was using finish line wet lube for longer rides. Although wet lasts for a while, it is a magnet for grit and extremely messy. I thought I would try the teflon dry lube and my lbs recommended new muc-off dry. To apply, I degreased the chain, dried and applied the muc-off. The muc-off is relatively thick, like a gel, so you can put a drop on each roller at a time and rotate the crank backwards until the muc-off works itself into the chain. Wipe off excess and let the muc-off dry. It seems that the liquid evaporates leaving behind the teflon to lubricate the chain. I was concerned at first that the consistency of the gel would prevent the muc-off from penetrating into the chain, but that wasn't the case. I let the lube sit over night and I was rewarded with a quite chain with good shifting the following day. After a few rides (maybe 60-80 total miles later), I noticed that the chain got considerably louder (unlike the wet lube which seemed to last forever). I applied more of the lube during the ride and it quieted down for a few miles only. Before the next ride, I noticed that the dry lube was squeezed out of the chain and it was deposited as a flaky residue over the links of the chain and the rollers of the derailed. The flakes were dark and waxy (not as messy as wet), but the chain was not gritty. The noise obviously was a result of there being no teflon left between the parts of the chain to dampen the noise. I wiped the flakes off and reapplied the muc-off, let sit over night and the next ride was extremely quite again for the first 20 miles or so. After the initial 20, I started to hear some noise while accelerating hard, but still relatively quite most of the other times. Overall, I think the product works as advertised. It is relatively quite, cleaner than wet lube, and it does not attract grit. It doesn't last as long as wet lube, but definitely cleaner. I haven't used other teflon dry lubes to compare, but the reviews that I read are similar. Biggest negative for some may be that each application only lasts about 60 to 80 miles.
