Our trails have turned to a fine powder. When I come back from a ride my chain / cassette have a light dusting of powdered dirt. Sometimes it’s more than light.
I could ride it one more time and probably get away with it. The chain might start squeaking by the end of the 2nd ride.
I’m a Rock N’ Roll lube user. In less dusty times I do the apply/wipe routine every three or four rides.
Lately, I have been hosing off the drive train to get rid of the dust/dirt, then letting it dry, and then doing the Rock 'n Roll routine. It’s just getting tiring doing this every ride.
I’m curious what others are doing…
