    10W30 – whodda thunk! In a moment of dry chain desperation last week before a freezing but necessary ride I sprayed on the only thing I had in the house – 10W40 – and felt like I had committed some kind of biking sin. You have absolved me though 😉 I’ll get me some 10W30 today & heck with the pricey specialty chain lubs going forward.

    Looking forward to the series of videos.

      A bottle of lube for your bike probably costs less than an oil change for the car 😉

      As for 10W30, I would think it would need thinning out a bit with some mineral spirits.
