We use t9 boesheild at the shop.
Penetrates the metal, knocks the crud off and lubricates.

+1. Exactly the same here. Works great. I use a FinishLine cleaner machine.

i like the t9 stuff for the mtb.. works great ... i use something called white lightning clean ride on my road bike as it was on clearance. it works ok I guess.. still black gunk coming of the chain, and I don't see that changing... I use simple green and a finish line machine to clean the chain, but still greasy.

I was wondering about it. A friend of mine uses it thinned out with mineral spirits, applies it to the chain with a dropper bottle. He swears by it.
Myself, I use a mineral spirit motor oil concoction for road and Prolink for off road.
