Welcome to Chain-L High-Mileage Bicycle Chain Lube
Chain-L satisfies what we think are the three most important requirements of a chain lubricant:
  • Lubrication
  • Lubrication
  • and Lubrication

While properties like external cleanliness may seem important, the fact is that internal wear of
the 112 overloaded, overworked and overlooked bearings is what destroys chains. A road
cyclist, riding first-tier equipment, will typically wear a chain out in as little as 50* hours of use --
often destroying the cassette or chainrings in the process. On a high-end bike, drivetrain wear
is the most expensive maintenance cost per mile.

That’s why, when developing Chain-L, we approached is as a bearing-wear problem and
formulated it consistent with our theory of how chains wear and how best to combat it. We then
road tested with racers, messengers, shop staff and others; refining it over the span of almost a
year before we began selling to the public in the fall of 2007.

Rather than bore you with sales hype or smoke and mirrors, we prefer to follow the old adage
that the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” and encourage you to give it a try  and see for
yourself if Chain-L is something you should be using.

We're so convinced that once you try Chain-L you'll stay with it, that
we arranged with all of our dealers to apply Chain-L to your
chain free
for the asking.

All they ask is that you prepare your chain by dry wiping as much
loose dirt and crud as possible, so that it's ready to be oiled without
the mechanic having to clean it.

No catches: FREE is FREE. No purchase required.
You don't even need to bring in beer or coffee, though we understand
that it won't be refused...

This is a one-per-customer offer, so don't think that you can keep
going back every time you want your chain lubed!
