Love Finish Line products and this does not disappoint. Wet Triflo was always messy and attracted dirt. This product lasts longer, and the drive train and casette stays cleaner, much more so and lasts longer. And works well in the rain where other dry lubes do not.
After thoroughly cleaning my chain, I applied the Finish Line lube on a clean and dry chain. The first surprise was how very thin and liquidy this lube is, NOT like a typical 'oil' lubricant. You'd best hold the tip of the bottle very close to the chain as you spin the cranks backwards. That said, it seems good so far.... Not sure about the longevity of it, I've only taken a couple of rides with the first application, so I'm not sure how soon again I'll want to re-lube the chain, but so far, the chain seems to ride and shift as smooth as a baby's bottom.
Easy to dispense from the bottle and the lubrication goes on pretty easily. Just follow the instructions and wipe off any excess. Be sure to do this in an area where you don't mind staining or place cardboard on your work area. Otherwise I like this product. And remember, a little goes a long way.
Been a wet lube fan for years, as previous efforts with dry lube (White Lightening) resulted in a real blobby application and a nasty film that seemed to attract road and trail grime onto the drive train, so was always cleaning the stuff off and starting over. This however is a different experience altogether. Applies easily, cleanly, and the excess is easily wiped away. After a couple of months of summer use, the drive train seems to be less dirty than either my old wet lube, or the previous attempts to lube dry. I remain skeptical that this is an all-weather lube, but will see soon enough, and if it is, I'll even convert my off-road bikes!
I like a clean well lubed chain on my ultegra equipped bike since it improves the shifting performance. This lube performs well and can last for multiple 40 to 50 mile rides. I tried other lubes when my local bike shops quit carrying it but came back to Finish Line by buying on-line since the others didn't work as well. Thumbs up!
I use the teflon lube because it makes cleaning easier, is less messy, and picks up less road dirt. I clean the chain frequently. Don't try to toss it in your bike carrier for airline travel - mine was confiscated by TSA!
I have been using Finish Line dry lube on my road bike chain for about two years. It attracts less dirt than the wet lube I had been using (Finish Line ceramic). The only "con" is that you have to apply it more frequently, every 100 miles, and it is not as good (I am told) in wet conditions. You have to apply it more liberally than a wet lube, because the liquid is not the lubricant, it's a volatile solvent that has the lubricant suspended in it, which evaporates out after depositing it on and in the chain.
I rely on Finish Line Dry to keep my beach bikes operational. Use it before and after every ride. The salt and sand are brutal on all of the bike's moving parts, and FLD keeps things humming.
Gave only four stars to Finish Line Dry lube, because it needs wax along with Teflon. No problem: Brand X is a dry lube with wax, so a half and half mixture gave me a perfect combination.
