All the "won't fly off" chain lubes trap dirt and destroy the the O-rings, cutting chain life in half (or worse)
WOW I guess my current chain that is sitting at 25K miles on it (and the two prior that each got 20K+) that I use Chain Wax on after every ride would have lasted 50K??? Actually the chain is still fine, just need new sprockets..
