Model/Year: White Lightning easy lube

Pros: Easy to apply. Goes on wet and dries quickly. Will not attract grit and grime/chain stays clean. Readily available and inexpensive

Cons: Needs to be applied after every ride. Does not hold up to wet conditions. Get it wet and the chain will start squeaking very quickly

Recommendation: This is a great lube for dry conditions. I decided to give it a try after using Rock n Roll Gold for a many years. R n R works great and has been tested to be second only to pure parafin wax at friction reduction. However, it leaves big chunks of dirty wax deposits in the jockey wheels and the chain gets really dirty. It is still best for variable conditions but when I;m riding mostly dry conditions, the easy lube is nice because my chain and drive train stay much cleaner.

Pros: Does exactly what the bottle says if you start with a extremely clean drive train

Cons: I find that it needs to be reapplied frequently. On long rides or if rode through water my chain would start squeaking

Recommendation: If you ride for long distances or in wet conditions I would use the epic ride. Other wise it works great and does what the bottle says

Pros: Cheap, easy to buy, works great. No complaints for the limits of my usage, which can get pretty demanding.

Cons: I only don't recommend for dry and dusty conditions, then you need a more coagulate wax-based formula.

Recommendation: Don't pay more for fancier stuff, this stuff is tried and proven.

Recommendation: One of the only lubes I will ever use. Use the wet lube in the winter and the dry in the summer, and it works great.

Pros: Very slippery and never dries out. This lube not only works on your chain but for other things too! I wont go there. Even though its sold in wal-mart this lube works well. I bought it for a reasonable price and applied it as directed. I believe using White lightning easy lube will add months to your chain or even years to it depending on how much you ride.

Cons: Could be viewed as cheap Chinese lube because its sold in Wal-mart.


Recommendation: Yes i do recommend this lube for all the haters out there.
Lube up with White Lightning because you squeak too much!
