- TJ was right – chain wax
🙂 Buy candles [waxy ones, not too crumbly]Posted 4 years ago
🙂 Have candlelit dinner [optional]
🙂 Remove wicks/metal bits
🙂 Gently melt in old bean can
🙂 Place whole chain in
🙂 Shake about a bit over the sink
🙂 Remove chain and place on cardboard to cool
🙁 Clean sink
🙂 Ride and repeat when it squeaks 🙂
SO there I was, googling for ring lube and chains, and I found that putoline stuff that teej uses
put the road bike chain in it – bugger me, it’s silent and it’s already lasted 30 miles without reappliation !! 😉
great fun with a camping stove on the lounge carpet, too

I’ve been using this stuff too, it’s ace- amazing how well it works in mud, I used it for a couple of innerleithen enduro races and the UKGE event particularily left the gears just a block of mud, but still it worked. Only downside is that it’s a lot of work to clear off, and it does still need redone fairly often in winter.
Going to try it on a bike if summer ever happens- originally I planned to go back to epic ride, but this feels like it might last forever in the dry.
Also it does feel quite a lot like I’m going to burn the house down.
But what did the Tandemjeremy ever do for us? Just excellent employment advice, useful bike advice, running trail repair sessions, organising rides sometimes, what a ****, glad he’s banned 😉 Because there’s been no bad threads since then obviously and the people who used to troll him definitely don’t do it to anyone else.Posted 4 years agoJunkyardMember
andy – if you keft would anyone notice?
Not having a dig but look how often he gets a mention
there was no malice in him even if he was foolish and those who goaded him deserved the ban IMHO.He was often bulled and we kicked out the victim and left [some of]the bullies here and this shames us all.Posted 4 years ago
