    Lubed the fleet and took the last rig out for a nice ride. This stuff works. I may need to order another round.

    One ride in and I am impressed. I am amazed at how little of the stuff you need. I am really rethinking all of my past use of chain lube. Thanks for creating this stuff!!!

    Hello ;)

    There are hundreds of bottles "out there" in the wild now. I'm headed out for a cold wet ride on the DI2 Ti Indy Fab bike. I have approx. 15 hrs. use since the last re-lube and will come home, wipe the chain aggressively than relube and done.

    Somewhat longer term report:

    I'm not going to bother reporting after this because I am done with all the others. No other chain lube has done what this one just did. After the initial application on a not very clean chain, I put in 120 mostly dry miles (except for ten misty wet miles) and wiped the chain down after a couple of the rides. Then yesterday, a bunch of us went on the last "Dave" ride. Dave is known around here for loving dirt roads. He is moving his family out to Colorado on Friday, so about twenty of us got together and Dave led us on a "Dave" ride. Only a bit over forty miles, but almost half was on dirt roads ... but with the weather, cold, mist and rain, all the dirt roads were mud. It was a blast but we were all kind of bummed out thinking that we were losing Dave, at least until he wises up and comes back "home." Anyway, I took a few photos posted below during the ride and of my bike after the ride. So after 160 plus miles, much of it in stupid conditions, the NFS was still working. Not as nice as it had been after 100, but it still worked. It stayed in there and when I wiped down the chain after the ride, it cleaned up pretty well. I applied two, yes two drops this morning before heading over to Church for bell practice and then the Derby. Colder and pretty solid rain. My hands got so numb I turned around early. So only a bit over twenty miles in the rain but the NFS was just fine. Wiped down the chain and even after today's rain, I'm not going to bother with any more NFS until I need to. Who knows when that will be.

    There is no better. Period.

    After reading all the testimonials, I'm interested too.
    Is Australian Customs the snag point?

    All orders placed this week 12/10 will ship friday. Apparently NFS(w) is the ultimate stocking stuffer.

    NFS is the mother fuckin truth. Order a bottle, or bottles, today. Really, I ride rain or shine on my mtb and it still keeps the chain clean. I am stunned.

    I love this shit!
    Works really well. Cleaned and degreased the chain, applied ten drops, wiped excess and I got a noiseless chain for more than 100 km. Cleaned sideplates, 5 drops and the chain was lubed during two rides on wet and muddy trails under the rain. I'm not going to say that the chain jumps are smoother, but it seems.

    What do this stuff smell of? It reminds me of burned motor oil.

    I've completed my intial cold weather testing.
    This stuff is still flowing/liquid in the container at -35, which is more than I can say for myself.

    Thanks for the righteous report. With permission I'm copying your comments to BallersRide
    Curiously, I'm not sitting on my laurels.
    I'm super glad to hear this as I was not able to test in such cold conditions. You sir rawk.

    OK, so I gave a bottle to my cousin Bobby Lea. Some of you may know him as the US rider in the Olympic men's track omnium in London earlier this year. Decent rider. In the "off season" he does a lot of long (five to seven hour) rides in all sorts of weather and stupid conditions. Lots of dirt roads, dirt trails, etc. but only on his road bike. He sent me a note yesterday which follows:

    ... In other news, the NFS lube is incredible! It even survives back to back rain rides with getting dry by the end. In the rain it is certainly the best I've ever used. So far I'd also have to say its at the top for dry conditions, too. I haven't given it a good series of days with a lot of dirt, though. Some dirt, but not big loads on a single day.

    So there you go. Experienced professional, two time Olympian, mega-miles, all conditions ... and even he thinks Toot's stuff works like the nuts.

    Now order some as a Christmas present to yourself.

    Well that certainly puts my endorsement to shame. I'm in total agreement, though. A few weeks in and I've now upgraded all my bikes to NFS and I'm going against my urge to clean and relube to see just how long I can go. The stuff just lasts. I've just received a couple extra bottles that will either be gifts for some riding buddies or will get stashed away for what would likely be a lifetime supply.

    Devlin, sorry you missed my reply. I'm not selling outside CONUS however am perfectly happy to barter for local goods. For instance bottles to Spain resulted in terrific local olive oil on the flip side. Send a PM.
