This product cleaned well and really seemed to lube the chain well.
L. T. Cooper
It does a good job on the chain and doesn't attract dirt like many other lubes.

Like the lube because it's clean and keeps your chain running smooth.

I have used various lubes in the past including Pedro's Chainj, Finish Line and others, but I keep coming back to ProLink.

I like ProLink because it acts as a decent cleaner and a great lubricant. It's a lower viscosity oil, so you'll have to apply it a bit more often than the thicker stuff. I usually apply this stuff about every 150-ish miles.

I believe that some people really overcomplicate the process of oiling a chain by using fancy chain cleaning tools, degreasers, extended soaks in oil and/or mineral spirit baths, etc. I'll share my personal technique below. I'm not claiming this is the best way to do it, but it's very easy and I get just as many miles out of my chains as I did back when I overcomplicated this process, if not more. I'm a full-blown cycle commuter who puts over 8,000+ miles on my bike annually, so I've gone through plenty of chains and have tried various techniques. Below is all I ever do anymore.

First, there's no need to use degreaser unless your chain is rusty. I'm in the camp that believes degreasers do more harm than good by allowing subtle debris to work its way deeper into the chain. Also, I believe that degreaser can flush deeply penetrated lube out, which can be hard to re-apply. ProLink does a good enough job cleaning and your chain will still look fairly shiny.

1. - Wipe chain vigorously with a dry rag (just hold the chain with a rag and pedal backwards).

2. - Apply a drop of lube on each roller.

3. - Wipe chain vigorously again.

4. - Re-apply a drop of lube on each roller, try to get it between the roller and the plates for better penetration.

I have been using White Lightening for awhile but was unhappy with how long it stayed on the chain. I have been using ProLink for about a month now and this stuff really makes the drivetrain extremely quiet and seems to stay on the chain much longer than any other lube I have used.

I've tried a variety of oils and waxes over the years... I have been using ProLink for 3 months now and can strongly endorse it.

With a little online research on chain lubrication, I realized there is a cult of passionate tribologists debating the virtues of the different oils, treatments, and processes of proper chain lubrication. To be clear, I am NOT that guy! (but respect those who are into that stuff). I do have a couple of mechanical engineering degrees from many years past, so I feel qualified to at least intelligently look at the problem of oiling my chain.

What I like about Pro-Link is:
1) it seems to have a very low viscosity but high surface attraction such that the chain operates smoothly with lower friction that my prior oils. Thus, it is more efficient and allows you to ride faster.
2) The same qualities (#1) allow the bike to run more quietly and shift smoothly.
3) The oil attracts less dirt than my prior oils/waxes. So the chain stays cleaner longer.
4) Seems to wear longer than other oils/waxes. Thus It requires less maintenance.

My application process (for what its worth) is simple.
A) After most rides (20+miles) I wipe the chain clean with a rag (just pedal and hold the rag against it ).
B) Apply Prolink. Peddle backwards and apply 5-10 drops. Distribute the oil evenly by continuing the peddle backwards for 15-20 seconds.
C) Let bike sit with the new oil applied until next ride. The oil will not seep into the metal, but it will continue to seep in between the links and pins where it is needed.
D) Before your next ride, wipe off the chain with a clean rag (peddle backwards). Focus on removing the oil from the outside edges, let most of the oil remain in the inner working area. Ride and enjoy.

OK, after writing this, I too sound like the passionate tribologists:-)

Prolink is a wet, thin lube but with special "metal attachment" compounds. Even tho it's wet, it attracts a surprisingly low amount of road dirt. And the very, very nice thing about it is that every time you lube the chain, it re-cleans it -- you really never have to take your chain off until it at the end of it's service life/stretched out. One important note: Use Prolink the night before (or I'd say at least six (6) hours before) you plan to ride otherwise you can get some "spin off" onto your rear wheel. The time period is to let the volitale compounds eveporate from the lube. My method to lube: Place newspapers between the rear wheel and chain & derailleur, then lube away by spaying Prolink on while spinning the pedals backwards. Keep spinning and hold a wadded up piece of paper towel against the chain near the derailleur cage and watch all the dirty crap come off with the excess Prolink! I usually do this twice and you're done. There is no long-term buildup of junk on your chain from Prolink like with dry lubes, and they just never really lube as well as a wet lube anyway.

I've been riding quality bikes for more than 50 years and doing all the maintenance on them. I've used many different types of chain lube over those years and ProLink is the best. I wipe the chain down after every ride and relube prior to the next ride. Chain and chainring wear is now negligble.
