Re: Chain Maintenence
Chain maintenace is something that you work with until something imparticularly gives you the results you're after. First question, is your chain an O-Ring chain or not. If whatever you're riding is relatively new it probably is. This requires a little more careful choice as to what lubes you use, and any reputable bike shop will be able to show which lubes are safe for O-Ring chains or not. Secondly, an O-Ring chain essentially is made to withstand more lack of maintenance and yet last londer as well.
There are a number of different lubes that have waxes in them. Honda makes a really good one that is safe for O-Ring chains. This allows the Lube to remain on the chain instead of being slung all over the place.
As far as WD-40, I used to use that on Worms for catfish.
