Strengths:    Ease to use, keeps chain and clogs clean and makes shifting excellent.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Been using this product from mid May of this year (2012) Was giving a bottle from a friend for a b-day present. I applied as the directions said. Rode to meet friends about two miles from my house at trailhead. I noticed the chain didn't make a sound and the shifting was sweet. Yea but I was on the road with a fresh lubed chain. Hit the trails and my shifting was spot on every time even under load. When I got home after about three hours of riding, I hung up my bike and the chain was like it hadn't see any single track. I ride 4 to 5 times a week and always get in 2 to 3 hours in. I'm still on my chain and it shows almost zero wear.

Strengths:    Easy to use, keeps chain lubed, extends component life

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Love this stuff! I use it regularly and it does a great job keeping my chain clean - it doesn't seem to overly attract dirt and it also repels water. Using it couldn't be easier, just squirt it liberally over the chain as you turn the crank until it is well covered. Then use a cloth to remove as much of the lube as possible, then you are ready to roll!

Strengths:    I have never seen a chain look and roll so good! Just follow the directions and you'll see the reasons this lube gets great reveiws.

Bottom Line:   
I tried this product because it was recomended. It works great! All kinds of conditions in the north east and this lube worked wellin all of them. Just apply as needed. Your chain will not as though it has gone through hell and back.

Strengths:    Withstands wet rides, lasts longest of any lube I've used, keeps chain clean, easy to apply.

Weaknesses:    If you don't follow the directions (which includes keeping the lube warm, read the label), you might find it doesn't work very well.

Bottom Line:   
Best lube on the market for my purposes: from my regular 3-4 hr weekday rides to my all-day rides in alpine conditions with wetness and mud likely on many rides... this is the best lube I've used.

Rock and Roll Gold works nearly as well but is not quite as resistant to wetness. I use Gold in the dry period (4 weeks or so in high summer) and Extreme all other times.

Remember to follow the directions -- it will make a big difference in how well the lube works. After you've used RnR lubes for a while you'll get to know just how much excess to put on before spinning the cranks to work it in. Remember to wipe it dry after applying. And it works best if you can lube the night before, if possible.

Bottom Line:   
If you need to apply this when the temp is below 45f, don't even bother. It thickens to the consistency of uncooked spaghetti sauce, and will not penetrate the links. You end up with a blue chain, blue cogs, and blue chainrings. Oh, and you also get nice chainsuck and poor shifting, too.

Strengths:    It works like a charm. Now I have a nice quiet, clean and well lubed chain and drive-train.

Weaknesses:    None as of yet. But, I will probably change over during the winter season.

Bottom Line:   
It works (period). Buy it online, most cycle shops overprice it (if you can find it).

Date Reviewed: November 14, 2009

Strengths:    Like others have already said, it works better than any other lube I've tried, and I've tried a lot over the years.
It works very well in our dry climate.


Weaknesses:    You have to make sure it's shaken very thoroughly so the white stuff at the bottom is all mixed in good.

Bottom Line:   
I've used this stuff on my road and mountain bikes to great success.
It will attract some dirt (all lubes will, including "dry" ones) but when put onto a chain that has be cleaned of other lubes and wiped off like they say, it works great.
It will last for at least one ride, sometimes two, and builds up way less crap, even when it hasn't rained here in the desert for months.
(Note: That is off road riding in extreme dust and sand, when used on road bikes, it will last much longer.)

I recommend this to riders in a dry climate for sure. I can't say about wet, that's for others to say.
It's a great lube, just follow the instructions to the letter and it will work.
It's great for trail riding and works even better on the road.
In this case, the hype is real.

Bottom Line:   
This stuff works. You just have to put a lot on, and spin the chain for a while, then wipe off as much as possible. This is the only lube that gets me through the entire ride without squeeking, in sandy Southern California trails, without having to clean the chain before each ride.

Bottom Line:   
easily the best chain lube I've used in 6 years of riding. I'm a maintenance fanatic, so you can trust me. CRUCIAL TIP: FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS! this is not your typical drip on lube. you have to douse the chain then dry off all the excess. if you do you will think your chain is made of silk.

Strengths:    Quiet, clean, relatively long lasting..... dare I say approaching lube perfection. No more chain ring tattoos and my drive system has never stayed this clean for this long.

Weaknesses:    It's not free and I keep checking to see if my chain is still attached

Bottom Line:   
This review is for RnR Gold. I've used the extreme and it just doesn't perform in the long run as well as the Gold in the dry and dusty conditions in which I ride. This is hands down the best lube ever invented for a bicycle chain and drive. I use high end components on my bikes and this stuff has reduced wear on my chain, rear cassette, and front rings also. Just don't apply it over the rear cassette like the instructions say.... I don't want any kind of solvent to get near my hub seals or grease! When I switch to winter gear on my bike, I switch to purple extreme and rock that for three or so months where we have lots of moisture.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
I commute to work, 40KM round trip on roads & pavement. the product gives clean quiet operation and I'm very impressed. I lube the chain once a week but even that may be overkill. Follow the bottle instructions carefully and start with a clean drivetrain. I would recommend this stuff to everyone!

Strengths:    Can't think of any. Supposed to wash the chain, but it washes itself off just as well.

Weaknesses:    In winter, freezes in the bottle or over the chain. Otherwise, washes off at any sign of wetness, leaving behind awful rust.

Bottom Line:   
In Michigan useless in winter and useless during other seasons. Under the criteria I have to consider, actually the worst chain lube I've encountered.

Strengths:    It cleans the chain.

Weaknesses:    Can't use below freezing b/c it congeals. Granted my garage isn't heated, so I can't use this in the winter. I use Pro-Link in the winter and R&R in the other three months.

Bottom Line:   
Great product! And their lube/grease products are even better.

Chain skipping under extreme loads

So I have looked around and I believe I need a new rear cassette. I put on a new chain 50 miles ago, and the chain slips, but only on extreme hills, like 30 degrees or more. Is it normal to skip under extreme pedal force or no? Also I have ghost shifting between 4,5,6 gears, but I think that is a re ... Read More »
