Can anyone recommend a reasonalby priced good chain lubricant

This is ok for quick fix

I've been using this after a local bike shop sold me some and its superb. the little bottle is still half full after 6 months. chainreactioncycles.com/mob…215

I should add that's with cleaning the chain every week and cycling 110 miles per week average. I apply the lube every 60 miles.

You can get for this price in Halford in the large cans too

So the way I understood it from comments, cleaning the chain first (solution like muck off?) and then spraying GT85 over it?

thanks for that

Hi, does anyone know whether this spray is silicone based or petroleum based? Thanks in advance!

misleading, no Teflon in it!!! its silicon based.

WD40 is fish oil based.

Nothing wrong with using it as chain lube! Most forums are pretty much divided 50:50 on it's use but I speak to a lot of bike mechanics who use nothing else. Sure, you need to re-apply it regularly but it only takes a minute to lube, wipe and re-lube which removes all the crud on your chain prolonging the life of your chainset.

Better using this than applying a thick wet lube and never cleaning it!

It's PTFE.... Do some research lol

" the best known brand name of PTFE is Teflon"

Look on google

GT85 or WD40 is great for expelling moisture from the links in the chain after you have thoroughly washed the chain then you dry off the excess before using a quality chain lube.

Wilkos do cycle lube for £1.44, been using it for years. Lube is lube in my opinion it's not as though a bicycle chain is under used under intense conditions, as long as you clean your chain regularly especially after very wet weather, that is what really matters.
Some cycling experts don't even use chain oil, instead just make sure the chain is clean.

If you have an Aldi nearby they sell GT85 for £2.50, i've been getting my supply there for years and it always seems to be in stock.

Its fine for chains you just need to make sure you clean it well before re-applying and dont get any on the outside of the chain or your rotars !

Finish Line Wet Lube is really good. Costs about £5

I use GT85 as a degreaser and it is fantastic. So much cheaper than proper degreaser

so it is, i always thought it was Silicon based.

i'm quite aware of brand names and what they really are, most tight cnuts are.

I don't know if it helps

I sold Wurth products for a year or two. They aren't that cheap but their hs2000 is really stick lube and resists centrifugal force, thus not requiring re lubricating.

They are officially account / trade only but there are places like eBay to get it.

+1 I use finish line dry lube and that works a treat too! doesn't attract dirt quite as much but it does wash off easier if its wet so coming up to winter I'll prob switch to the wet version.

It's adding postage, what am I doing wrong?

We believe this legend came from folks assuming that the product must contain fish oil since it appears to attract fish. Sorry Charlie®, it just ain’t so.WD-40 Company has taken steps to respect and conserve the environment, and encourages its users to do the same. While WD-40 can be used to help protect fishing equipment from rust and corrosion, WD-40 Company does not recommend using WD-40 to attract fish.

wd40 IS petroleum based
there is a false belief that it consists more wholly of fish oil
it does NOT!
it consists mainly of petroleum products...hence this is why it says highly inflammable on the tin/container

its the propellant that makes it flammable, haven't you tried using one as a flame thrower? its not the oil that catches....

Grrr, just paid £4 for this a week ago!
