After 8 months of regular use of the product I an about to explain, I am here to say that THX to Kelvin Clark of Angle Tech Cycles , my guru for all things bike tech related, I no longer wear my recumbent. And this is a very big deal to me. After years of ruining winter time pants and rain wear, I now can ride my bike and not find my legs covered in grease. Since I ride the rain, in the past I used to have to apply generous amounts of oil to my chain so that it would not rust. Which added to my greasy leg misery. And the last thing I wanted to have to do was stay out in the weather to wipe my chain down every time I encountered any measure of precipitation.
So when Kelvin said that with ProLink Chain Lube, I would not have that problem., I did not believe him. But black stains on my legs and pants really are a thing of the past. And I am excited.
What a breakthrough! Especially for us recumbent riders. Since we have more chain than most, the dirt and grunge that collects on a chain can make for a most troubling matter indeed. Nor can I tell you how much of my life I have spent cleaning my drive train....
So when the ProLink web site sounds like it tells a tale that is too good to be true, as per the following, I am here to say U can believe every word :
ProLink Chain Lube will not let dirt and grit stick to your chain – in wet or dry conditions. It greatly reduces friction and wear, allowing smoother operation of your chain and cables, and it will keep your chain and drive train area clean and seemingly drag free. ProLink is a thin-bodied lubricant that uses MFR technology, a molecule which bonds to the metal surface. It does not build up or become tacky because it contains no solids like Teflon, wax, moly, graphite or plastic.
