    What does everyone use to lubricate their chain?

    I've heard lots of different opinions from different people.

    Some say to only ever use heavy weight oil. The manufacturers of chain wax make it sound like there's no other choice but to use wax.

    I've used the wax for years on my street bike, I'm wondering if there is something better that racers use.

    I would say you are fine using the same chain lube that you have been using.

    With the relatively limited number of km of racing per season a bit of basic care is going to give you good chain life.
