No problem, I'm here all week.

If you're sticking to your original post, what with all the crud under your wheel before you stop making an oily mess on the ground, I would venture to say that you just like to post bad advice and don't care what others think of you. If that proves to be the case, then I would certainly go out of my way not to meet you or ride at your side for my own safety's sake. Doesn't matter how long you've been doing it that way, it's still pretty ridiculous to tell others to follow your method.

I'm struggling at this end to continue finding a way to play to your sense of humor, when in all reality you gave some pretty bad advice. Is pride really an issue at this point?

What I meant since you seem oblivious to the fact that you could be wrong is the facts I've used this method for a very long time & get good longevity out of my chains, very good longevity. Everything I use is recommended by the chain manufacturers. Normally people with half a brain would clean their chain this way before the rest of the bike, maybe your style is different. As for getting anything on your tyre, I've never had a problem with that, then again I apply liquid at the top of the chain before the front of the sprocket, applying it at the back so it goes everywhere is not very smart & those that would should maybe stick to other things they know about, & maybe even try to see if it works, like not in there mind, I'm not telling anyone what should or shouldn't I just mentioned something that works for me & then you took it to a personal level of insults. I'm just replying to your retorts.

Stop being so sensitive, your fellow Aussies are going to have a laugh at you.

Pail with a few gallons of diesel for cleaning everything that can possibly get grimy... Mostly the chain. DuPont Teflon spray for lubing the chain. Doesn't fling so no caking up around the front sprocket & the back of the bike stays nice and clean. Best I've used in nearly 30 years of cursing everything I've ever sprayed on a chain.

DuPont? Teflon? Lubricants

Sit back and watch my divine spark flash.
