Hi there, Had been happy to make myself accustomed to bike chain care with Motul chain cleaner and road chain lube until bought my first big bike from a very nice guy who also threw in much good stuff including a paddock stand and a can of Bel Ray chain lube. So far, the Motul lube spreads over the chain (of my older smaller bike) way better but stays as sticky as chook poo, never drying up and always collecting debris, whilst the Bel Ray lube is just dry from the outset making the chain develop just a few minor patches of rust on its exterior. Still unsure which is better for the chain. Mechanically, the chain shouldn't care about its exterior, right? Thanks!
