  • I avoid it by not having to clean chains. Cleaning chains "weekly" is far more painful than putting the chain back on.


    Chains are cheap (or you should be using cheap chains) and not worth the effort of constantly cleaning them. All you have to lose is the time wasted on cleaning chains.[/QUOTE

cyccommute,

You are correct about the 'cleaning'. But being an old dirt motorcycle rider that has gobs of time available and being slightly 'anal' it is kinda fun at this point in time. I ride road Monday thru Friday 20 miles in the morning. Down here in coastal Florida my chain gets coated with the salty sugar sand. With the weakly cleaning I hope to help extend my cassette and chainring life.

By the way, last year your gave me some good advise on double butted spokes and where to purchase them. I built up two DT-Swiss rims with Shimano hubs and the spokes. 3,100 miles later no more broken spokes. Thanks again......
