|Rock & Roll Gold: Too sticky!|
First, an update on Rock & Roll Gold lube. It is not a good wet weather lube here. What worked in the dry times seems to not be so good when mud and moisture come into the picture. I'm not picking up a lot of gunk on my chain, but I am getting much more than I did when it was drier. What I am getting is a sticky chain and it caused chain suck on a 36T ring the other day. This was right after applying a fresh coating of the lube only hours before. That's not going to cut it for me. So, that's it for this lube. I would recommend it heartily for anything dry, as far as conditions, but not when things get nasty.
Of course, DuMonde Tech is going to be used going forward, but I also have some "off the wall" solutions in the mix. I won't say what they are just yet, but I have gotten some surprising results. More on all of that soon......
Stay tuned. This is going to get real interesting.
