Why lubricate a bicycle chain?
Lubricating the chain of a bicycle, it's a task quite often skipped. Bad idea! A bike chain that isn't maintained wears out faster, creaks, squeaks and runs a lot stiffer. Not only the bike chain, but also the sprockets and cassette wear out faster. Result: frustrations and unforeseen costs. You can do better.
By regularly cleaning and lubricating the bike chain you extend the life of the (electric) bike, road bike, mountain bike or gravel bike. After all, the entire transmission remains in top condition. And the cyclist? They benefit from better performance and extra fun. Because a well maintained bike chain shifts better and gives less resistance. Nice!
