i think putting the chain lube on is a pain though, b/c you can't tell what part of the chain you've already done and it's sticky and gets all over.
what about cleaning the chain what do you guys use?
Use a lube that has a residue that dries white then u know what you've done. as for cleaning, just a good degreaser and a clean shop rag, thats what i use anyway. i usually lube it after i clean then a quick one after the first ride, just to be sure none of the degreaser was still there and the lube flung off.
dont know what scott oiler is but i am also interested.
Visit the folks at ScottOiler at www.scottoiler.com to see the different on-board lubrication systems that they have. It's basically a reservoir with a pinpoint delivery tube right to your rear sprocket above the chain:
I don't have one, so I can't provide a product review, but it looks pretty cool and adds minimal weight. Approximately two drops are added per minute to the chain while riding to clean and lubricate simultaneously.
