Pre-Ride Tune-Up with GooseWorks Mobile Bike Tuning
You can give your chain a quick wipe to knock off the grime. While it’s not as good as a full degrease session, it’s better to not mix chemicals by degreasing, and then trying to put chain lube right on top of an oily mess.
If your drivetrain is dry, drip some of your favorite chain lube on each link. Then use a clean portion of the rag to remove the excess lubricant that’s only attracting dust and not lubricating the chain internals.
