    SDURO Trekking 6.0- Getting to know it

    4 years on mine.. Zero issues. Replaced the chain at 2,000mi. but it wasn't even at .5% yet. Yamaha drive has been flawless

    Ebike Chain Lubes

    I don't think anyone said there is one "best lube" but I'd definitely chose one of the top 5 in testing even though the testing is inherently flawed

    You can garden hose off heavy gear oil?

    Ebike Chain Lubes

    I'd hazard a guess that a lube that does well on an o-ring chain will also do pretty well on a non o-ring chain. The chains are very similar in construction minus the o-rings>In fact I beieve the tester mentions non o-ring chains were part of the testing. I had a non o-ring chain on an 1100CC...

    I agree but some of the poorly rated lubes should be avoided IMO. I doubt the testing is so bad that it can't identify lubes that don't work well

    ZFC is a brand of chain lube. Do you really think their tests are going to be "much better" than independent testing? LOL

    Ebike Chain Lubes

    You keep posting w/o actually having viewed the test. I'm not "forgetting" that o-ring chains are different than conventional chains and neither does the test. Actually the tests do ineed indicate how well the lube gets inside the chain where it's needed. Post up your better bike lube tests please.

    The fact that the chains were not actually on a bicycle doesn't completely discredit the results of the testing. Did you watch th video? There's some pretty high tech tests being done that you just can't throw out the window because the chains weren't on a bike... All test results are "moot" ???

    The dry lubes performed poorly in the tests.. Yeah I know it's not "real world" testing

    Ebike Chain Lubes

    Actually, I understand the limitations of the testing quite well and until someone comes up with a better test, it's all we've got. For sure there are chain lubes that out perform other chain lubes even if this guys testing doesn't mimic real life riding conditions it's a pretty good effort on...

    Ebike Chain Lubes

    If you actually took the time to view the test video you'd see that the Maxima chain wax was one of the top performers for keeping the chain clean. The guy throws sand on a metal plate after lubing and sees what sticks for all the lubes. Also it's one of the top performers for corrosion...

    FWIF, maxima chain wax gave the best average results out of 54 lubes tested on the test posted above.

    Yep, use soy sauce for all I care. Maxima chain wax has been great for my ebike and my motorcycle chains. Just trying to help anyone looking for a good chain lube. Sorry I tried now.

    Maxima Chain Wax is a superior power spray lubricant designed for all chain care needs. It's special ParaFilma formula creates a waxy film similar to Cosmoline, offering long term protection especially in water and high humidity environments. Maxima Chain Wax is formulated with heavy-duty...

    Disagree. The maxima chain wax goes on/in thin then dries to a waxy surface. This seals in the lube. Wax may not be better than oil but wax AND oil is a great combination

    I'm telling you, that maxima chain wax is almost magic. You get the lubricity of oil but the clean waxy coating of parrafin all in one product. The best part is there is no need to remove your chain and this stuff doesn't fling off at all

    I think I could get 3,000mi. if I ran it to .75

    Ebike Chain Lubes

    Maxima chain wax goes on thin and runny and then dries waxy. I do think it penetrates into the pins and then leaves a protective film on the surfaces. I've been more than happy w/ the results and longevity of my chain. Someone asked if I went 2,000mi. before relubing. LOL.. No, I get 2,000mi...

    I use Maxima chain wax. Same lube I use on my motorcycle chain. I get at least 2,000mi. from 10 speed shimano and Yamaha PW mid drive
