I try to keep the road bike drivetrain clean and lubed often. It's not because it works better as the primary reason, it's because the drivetrain wears out prematurely if the bits are gritty. Keep out the grit and the drivetrain should last longer.

I frequently get the same responses when I show up for a MTB ride. I just like my bike to be clean and lubed. It's really easy if you just give it a wipe down after each ride instead of letting it build up.
