Had my first scottoiler fitted. Looking forward to get many more miles on my chain and sprocket, but even more for not having to clean and lube it so frequently doing commuting everyday in all weather in London, UK. ??

Re: Scott Oiler
Chain lube + road or trail dirt = chain grunge. Eventually you have to clean the chain.

Yes, it annoys me after a dirt ride if I hose (not pressure wash) down the bike and next day the chain side links are starting to rust.
I tried the wax chain lube - off road everything sticks to it - total grunge

I now use Motul off-road lube - really, with the o-ring chain chain, lube only stops rust on the links and keeps the roller-to-sprocket interface quiet. Some off-road guys just use teflon spray so the dirt and mud won't stick - they swear long life results as the grunge is not there to wear out chain or sprockets.
