I was looking around, and trying to find out about an AR-15 and came across this on a military site. Seems some of our hero's are using Finish Line Teflon Plus Dry Bike Lube on their weapons (M4s, etc). And are liking the results in the sandbox. I've used it on my AR-15 and it seems to love it. It goes on wet then drys, but still lubes. I've also used it on a mower cord and it now pulls very easy. And it doesn't pick up all the grit or sand. Grit and sand seems to fall off or stay away from the parts. I'm liking this product very much.

Best lube for dry, dusty places... after applying to a clean chain, and letting it dry, I wipe off the outside of the chain to be sure no excess remains. The chain is quiet and smooth as can be, yet it doesn't attract tons of dirt & gunk like a oil or wax-based lube would. Highly recommended!

Avoid this lube if there is any chance of rain. Even though the label indicates this lube is for wet and dry conditions, the bike will be a greasy black graphite mess if you get caught in a rain shower. I recently was caught in a brief rain shower on my road bike. The water causes the lube to get slung off the chain and onto anything in its path including rear wheel, brakes, frame, seat and the back of your jersey. Brakes stopped working and had to disassemble and clean the bike after this ride. After the cleaning, I switched to Pro Gold Prolink lube. This stuff is the best lube I have used.

It does what it suppose to.

Before getting Finish Line DRY Teflon lube, I used Cyclo C-10 Break-Away Penetrating Oil and Lubricant but although the C10 was pretty smooth on the chain it collected a lot of dust.

I ride around 100 km per week in a dusty part of town next to the main road, ride a little on the road and on the pathway next to the river with some occasional dirt, soil, leaves and nature. I tried using WD 40 for a while but it just wasn't smooth and didn't really lubricate the chain. I felt I had to use more effort to pedal.

So I finally decided to get the DRY Teflon lube from Finish Line hoping for a smoother ride and getting less dust being collected. I cleaned the chain and dripped the DRY Teflon on the chain.

It is really smooth. I can feel the different when I pedal and it's so quiet now. However, for the past week it rained a bit and were some puddles on the route I usually take. I try to avoid the puddles but the bike still got wet.

It was all okay until yesterday when I left the bike outside and it rained around noon. When I came back to look at it in the afternoon, I noticed some rust spots on the chair.

That was the first time I saw rust on my chain after 1 year of riding. I am not sure if it is the rain water that made it has some rust spots. It's shocking to me because it never happened to me. Even the bike I put outside my house doesn't have rust spot.

I thought DRY Teflon would give a little water protection but I guess not. So I am wondering if DRY Teflon is only for "dry" places with no water or rain whatsoever or if I have just maintain the chain in correctly.

Update:

After spotting the rust spots, I wiped them off with a paper towel and they didn't reappear. After using the product for about 3 weeks with no rain, but just some occasional puddles I am not getting any rust anymore.

Can lubricate your bike chain and make your journey quiet. I like it because there's no oily mess and dries without leaving residue. You can easily wash your hands with soap and water afterwards.

I ride my bike around 20 miles a day and after applying this lube, it has become super smooth and I am sure it has decreased the friction between the metal parts as well. I like it.

Works well on all moving parts of my bike. I use it mostly on my front suspension to loosen it up. Works great, best place to get it, cheaper than everywhere else.

I started using this dry lube after using tri-lube for years. I live in San Diego so it's typically dry terrain here. I stopped using the wet lube because it just attracted dirt to the drive train and if/when the chain got wet it sounded like the chain was grinding by all the dirt on it. Anyway... I switched to this Finish line Dry lube and absolutely love it, the chain stays clean and yet lubricated. When the chain gets wet the dirt pretty much falls off. Cleaning the chain is simple. I use a little diluted simple green and water, hit the chain with a brush quickly and blast it with the hose and it looks like new. Wipe the chain down and apply a fresh coat of Finish line and it's good as new. The 32oz is the way to go, it's the best price and the lube is so good, it won't go to waste sitting in the garage for years.

I purchased this product on a whim after having used a traditional inexpensive lube from Nashbar called "Pro Style Chain Lube" for many years. I've used this Dry Teflon lube now for about 5-months and I don't see it as being substantially better in any way from a traditional lube. It does not seem to last any longer, doesn't provide any additional performance benefit, doesn't apply any easier, and actually seems to attract dirt and grime much more than a traditional lube. If the cost of the lube was cheaper, I might give this 3-stars, but at literally 2x the cost of a traditional lube I have to rate it 2-stars. I've used this on my road-bike exclusively, but I imagine on a cyclocross or mountain bike results of this lube would be similar or worse.

People complain about the price of some lubricants. As a mechanic I know that spending a little more on maintenance can save you a lot more in the long run over replacement. One of the main issues is most people use too much of it. I apply about one drop per chain link and a little blast to my derailleurs weekly and one bottle lasts me about 6 months usually. As long as cables are adjusted right this keeps my bike running so smooth all you can hear is the tire noise. Please note that this is mostly for your drive-train. For cables I use Zoom-Spout oil and for bearings Mobil brand premium grease.
