Cons: Leaves wax buildup on chain that eventually starts holding dirt and grime.
Recommendation: I'm not normally a fan of wax lubes but this does work decently. Not sure how much it "self cleans" but it did keep my chain quiet for a good 100 miles or so in between applications. If it didn't have the waxy buildup I'd be a fan.
Pros: Definitely repels dust and dirt. I think it can extend chain life if used frequently.
Cons: Frequent re-application is necessary. Does not inhibit rust.
Recommendation: Where I ride, in Arizona, most of my riding is in dry conditions with very fine dust. I used this lubricant and got about 3000 miles out of a chain last season. I was pretty religious about cleaning and re-lubing the chain between rides however. So if you want to lubricate and forget you might choose a Teflon lube instead.
Recommendation: This stuff does not stay on the chain long enough to make it worthwhile. My general ride is about 20 miles, 12 road miles round trip to the trail and about 8 or so on the trail. By the time I am heading home, my chain is crying. I was trying to be environmentally friendly but this is not the solution. Next...
Recommendation: This lube is perfect for shedding grit and grime and keeping your chain nice and clean. However, it definitely wears out very quickly and you constantly need to be reapplying it, (like before every ride). If you're willing to go through all of that work though, it's worth it. (And despite the constant application, you won't break the bank because it is reasonably affordable.)
Recommendation: Man, I can't understand how people say this is messy. It's the easiest stuff to use. First, you need to take the chain off and completely degrease it. Let it dry and put this stuff on it. I was shocked how clean my chain was after the first ride using it. It literally repels dirt! Now it may not last forever, especially in wet conditions, but for how cheap it is...
Pros: Leaves a layer of wax on the chain to repel dirt and water. Cheap.
Cons: A little messy if you allow it to drip off the chain. Functions best with a proper chain cleaning in between applications.
Recommendation: While not my favorite chain lube, it's still a functional lube if you a looking for something with a wax base. It can gunk up the chain a bit after repeated applications without washing down your chain.
Recommendation: Not really worth it, it leaves a white film all over your tires/ground if you miss the chain. Also this is a dirt magnet, maybe that's the "self-cleaning", cause you yourself with be cleaning it often. Does not last long at all, I feel like you have to lube after every ride. Another reason not to get this is because it will NOT penetrate as well as other lubes do. Do yourself a favor and walk away from this headache.
Cons: Lube doesn't last long -- I was lucky to ever get more than 30-40 miles out of an application. It may be a dry lube, but what it lacks in attracting gunk is overwhelmed by the gunk that it creates by itself. You can't apply it in temps under, say, 50 degrees F, or it will just clump on the outside of the chain.
Recommendation: Skip it. There are so many better lubes available.
