    I don't know, man, I mean this sounds way too complicated. I mean, do I put ten drops on links right next to each other, do I space them out, is it important if I space them out to space them exactly or is close good enough, which gear ratios spread the lube optimally when I work it in, how long do I work it in, and do I need any special tools?

    My head is spinning.

    Seriously, I'm glad I decided to wander over to this section to waste some time looking at classifieds for cool stuff I may or may not need. This I am pretty sure I need. Prolink is OK but I ran out and am using up some Boeshield which is OK but they both have their drawbacks.

    The proper lube will keep the wheels on your shopping cart from squeaking.

    If you change your settings to 40 posts per page it's barely two pages.

    Apologies for the wait. The shopping cart system at BallersRide is driving me nuts. I'll have it working by sunday. Sheesh.

    josh, did you work up an uber cool, semi-plausible yet still epic back story? Something about how your regular lube failed with 50 to go in Ballers or r2d2 and Richard heckled you for 40 miles then his beloved chainL failed and the remaining 30 minutes was pure hell with scratchy drivetrain noise ruining the total epicness of the ride....? Maybe the CC guys can help.

    I keed, I keed....

    It occurred to me yesterday while gluing tubulars that your next million dollar idea (after this one of course) should be to create a tubular glue that is quick like fastack but not as abrasive as you have mentioned.

    I keed, I keed....
    Here is the backstory...sorta. I think it was before my last transcontinental I was hanging at Haldeman's house and he was bitching about the fact that he can not find a chain lube that will last one entire 600K in the rain. He said that without blinking as if it was something that should be easy to accomplish. Since both of us are seasoned long riders it was not exactly unreasonable at least in my mind to have that expectation...but it was nuts. We all struggled with the simple fact there was nothing that would even remotely do this.

    None the less, to that date Lon had tried every lube on the market as well as trying all the kooky combos people suggested to no avail. That conversation stayed with me and every year at some point I throw up my hands over the fact that I can only get one week's worth of use from the best chainlubes and even my favorite chainlubes need a refresh way to frequently. This is even more frustrating when you begin to accept the fact that your chains are wearing out way faster if you don't over apply the lube or re-apply frequently.

    I've tested lubes for all the players you can name...some of them I tested before they got traction and became very popular. I'm a good tester because I lay down big miles and never stop riding because of bad weather and I'm not biased, if glove fits you must commit.

    Trust me, some of these whizbang lubes actually ruined my chains.

    Fast forward today. Myself and some of the Cabal are really keen to make Ballers Ride a continued success. If you have followed that story you'll know that Ballers Ride is a event where framebuilders gather, RIDE their bikes, talk about the trade and never stand behind a table. From the start I had the bright idea that we could somehow lower the cost for their attendance.

    Combine Ballers Ride goals with NFS profits and maybe, just maybe we've got a product who's sales will raise the funds I need to pay for all the effbuilders to attend each year.

    The "rest of the story" is that I worked at a western coal mine for two years and gained extensive experience using industrial lubes. When I finally decided to market a lube it was pretty easy to narrow in on what would work. After several failures and 6 months using the final product I'm really REALLY happy. NFS stays where you put it and runs and runs and runs. After you get the product applied all you have to do is keep the sideplates wiped clean and you'll be a happy.

    Do NOT ask me to teach you how to apply chainlube. This chain lube is made for people who are hands on. Unfortunately that means Darren is out, but the good news is that I'm shipping a bakers dozen to Signature Cycles so Justin can take care of the boy ;)

    How does that grab you?

    Friend, international shipping is not impossible. Send me a PM with your mail address and we'll work it out. Include your physical address.

    I've checked out your blog. You cats really need this chainlube. Looks like GREAT riding.

    Holy cow. Thanks for the rather enthusiastic first round of orders. New to NFS? All you really need to know is start slow, go easy and aggressively wipe your chain sideplates.

    11/21/12 All orders rec'd to date as shipped.

    Please note, we've added a donation button to the catalogue at BallersRide where you can help to underwrite 2013 costs for Framebuilders traveling to BallerRide. If Mayor Daley were alive today he say "Give early give often".

    Why do people feel the need to list all of their bikes in their signature?
