What’s your go to chain lube for gravel riding?
My gravel riding doesn’t happen just in nice weather and maybe a lube doesn’t exist that will always work well.
Currently I’ve been using Squirt and just tried actual waxing with Paraffin wax(haven’t had a chance to try it outside yet) biggest problem has been that a wet lube does great when I’m caught out in the rain, but if it’s dry and dusty then the drivetrain is gummed up in short order. Dry lubes do great with the dry and dusty but then when there is sometimes as much as a water crossing, let alone riding in the rain, the lube washes off and I’m left with a noisy, slower shifting drivetrain.
I’m almost to the point of keeping 2 chains on hand, one with dry lube, one wet, and changing for expected conditions.
What lube have you used and what have your experiences been?
