What do people do to maintain their drivetrains on long rides like the CTR? After one-day rides, I usually spray the dirt and grime out of the chain with a hose, run the chain through a Park chain scrubber with solvent (not every ride), let it dry, add some lube to every link (trying Finish Line Ceramic for a bit), and then rub off any extra. I’m pretty happy with this ritual, but it’s not something that I can do on the CTR. I’d love to hear what experienced long-distance riders are doing, which lubes they’ve tried, etc. Thanks in advance!

In the previous years, I had been racing marathons, 100 milers, and 24 hour solo events on Finish Line Wet lube. It worked really well for me for those races. Basically had to re-apply once during the event...or not at all.

Just as yourself....I am also messing with different lubes for CTR. What I have found to work best so far has been Squirt Lube. I haven't even touched the FL Wet Lube this year.

Hope this helps.
