Only 10% cyclists do this in a right way and 90% of them couldn’t choose appropriate lube for their pretty bike. It offense, because few of them know that actually which lube is fit for his/her bike.

Before picking chain lube you need to know about different types of lube, functions as well as the purpose of them. There are two types of bicycle lubricant those are dedicatedly designed for bicycle- wet lube and dry lube. I have checked out this two type’s lubricant in different weathers as well as roads also.
Let’s discuss in details of wet lube and dry lube so that cyclist can pick their require one.
Wet lube is thicker than dry lube. It is normally for those rides their bike in the muddy road. Wet lube stays for long until cleaned or washes your bike. When you will ride in rainy or muddy conditions areas, wet lube is best chain lube for you.
You should keep in mind that its stay wet and collect dirt and debris lots. The dirt and debris hold on to metal fragments and drivetrain. It might be the cause of slow speed also. The wet lube performs well but recommended for the required circumstances.
Dry lube is actually alcohol base lube. It dries after some times of using. It has a great positive sided that don’t collect dirt or debris on the muddy areas but wear off quickly. Normally it takes 3-4 hour to ride the bike after using.
Dry lube perfume excellently in the dry climate where there no muddy or rain.
