How to lubricate a chain? A question asked in bike forums umpteen times. There are as many opinions and instructions as there are bicycle chains - a topic with the potential for a war of faith. But there is one point on which everyone agrees: When you hear that the bike chain requires care, it's actually too late! On the road with a dry chain, steel on steel has already caused unnecessary wear. And as the lubricating film decreases, quite a lot of performance also gets lost.
Road bike mechanics certify a dirty chain strand with a power loss of up to 30 watts. If you consider that an average touring cyclist may achieve an average power of 120 to 140 watts over the day, it becomes clear that chain care not only protects the bike, but also significantly increases your riding pleasure.
Now hand on heart! We don't know anyone who enjoys the pleasure of oiling a bike chain. A complete care is usually only something for really committed bikers (and requires the removal of the chain), and even the oiling on the hurry sucks - There´s more oil on the bottle than in it, half of the oil goes in the cloth, the other half on the ground. The rest is spread randomly on the chain.
