I have an old can of 'Chain Wax' that I've never used, just wondering what your thoughts and experiences have been using this on bike chains an a lubricant? How well does it work? How long does it last? Etc.

I use Pedro's wax on my chain and it does a good job of keeping everything lubed. before you try the wax, make sure you clean the chain with a good degreaser. There are many citrus degreasers out on the market these days. I guess the age of the wax shouldn't hurt anything so go ahead and try it out. Also, what kind of weather will you be riding in, wet or dry?
Strictly dry, unless I happen to get caught out in a sudden downpour. (Try to avoid that at all costs!)
