Howdy, all -
I love Pro Link lube, but don't love the price. Six bucks per bottle, and a bottle only lasts me about a month.
I've heard people mention that they make their own lube by mixing synthetic motor oil and mineral spirits. It seems to me that this is probably what pro link is. That would explain the smell, and its strange ability to clean the chain it is lubing. What do you think?
Does anybody have a home brew recipe for synthetic chain lube? Specifically, how much lube to how much solvent?
Yes, I did a forum search for this, but all I found was folks getting REALLY angry with each other over wd40 and white lightning. Death threats, etc. Please remain calm.
