I shouldn't have ever gone away from this lube in the first place. Between Mtn biking and commuting, I started using Boeshield about 8 years ago. Boeshield works great on my Mtn Bike, but not so great on my commuter. And since I just bought a new road bike this year, I didn't want the buildup that comes with wax based lubes. So, back to ProGold.
When I used this lube before, I would do a ride and then put this on the chain before I put the bike away. The process that works best is to thoroughly wet the chain and then use paper towels to soak up the excess and rub the chain until the towels come away clean. Anything left evaporates and the chain is ready for the next ride. This every-ride routine has the added benefit of keeping the chain very shiny. The only negative is the smell. Make sure you lube outside of the house and give it at least a couple of hours to gas-off.
Now YMMV, but when I used this lube before, I rarely replaced my commuter bike chains. But since I started using Bowshield on my commuter, I've replaced 2 chains, 1 rear cluster, and 1 chainring. I think I'll start using this on my commuter bike again.
Thank you for your feedback.
