Its good to make sure your chain is clean and flexes. In the early days I had a dirty chain and kept adjusting the derailer. I was using WD-40 as a lube. It was attracting dirt and was stiff as a steel rakil. It finally broke. I asked a shop if it could be fixed, they said the real problem was the rider, could he be fixed. They then threatened to whip me with dirty chains if I ever used WD-40 on my bike. Good lubes and a clean chain are god things.
BTW-it was a good shop, still is.
I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!
