    Hahaha. I've used every single lube available and found that dry lubes are really just a quick fix.

    I discovered a once a month cleaning in acetone, and a hot dip in chainsaw lube, a quick wipedown, and my chain is silent and clean for another 30 days.

    I bought a little bottle of Phil's bio-lube a few weeks ago and it's worked well, though it kind of makes the chain smell like an old deep fryer

    well, i picked up some stuff called rock n roll lube, its supposed to clean + lube, i like the fact the directions say to wipe off chain completely "you cant wipe it off enough!" wo-hoo!!! no more chain oil on my leg! i also picked up my new limited edition chrome bag while i was there too, i promise to post pics of it and pics of the masi as soon as my laptop is fixed (possibly this week!)
