Lubrication is a substance that makes things slippery, stuff that you squirt between two surfaces so that they slide against one another resulting in the least amount of damage or wear to either surface. So, a successful lubricant will do the best job of extending the life of the objects that are lubricated and make the entire system involved more efficient by the fact that friction has been reduced between the systemic parts.
Does Road rage lubricate well? Yes! Road Rage penetrates deep into the rollers and keeps the chain spinning freely and unencumbered by internal friction.
A Lube is lube is a lube?:
There are different kinds of lubes for different conditions and different kinds of applications. So, what application is Road Rage good for? Although, Road Rage has an oily composition it seems to do better in dry conditions that were fairly free of dirt, debris or other road detritus. As stated earlier RR worked its way deep into the chain to reduce internal friction but, it also seemed to attract a great deal of schmutz. The longer I rode with the RR on my chain, the more gunk it picked up. This lead to the need for more frequent cleaning to preserve accurate shifting. Eventually, I felt the need to do a complete drivetrain cleanout because of the coat of gritty residue that caked onto the chainrings and derailluer pulleys. One also has to take into consideration that fact that the grime that adheres to the chain will produce a certain amount of resistance, which will affect the performance of your drivetrain. This fact detracts from my opinion of Road Rage's marks as an everyday lube. I think Road Rage is an excellent product for revitalizing older chains that may be semi-seized or corroded yet still have life in them. Additionally, I think Road Rage's deep penetration helps protect chains from future corrosion which could be particularly helpful to people who train near bodies of salt water or ride in the winter on salted roads. So, if you reside coastally or are training for Ironman in Hawaii, this might be the goo for you.
Switching up bikes:
Most of us who have the cycling bug own more then one steed. And many of us switch off bikes seasonally or have certain bikes that are only used for racing or good weather. Which means that when those bikes are not in use they are in storage. Road Rage's ability to sink in and block out moisture makes it ideal to use to prevent drive train corrosion. A thin coat of this slick metal ointment will keep your chain, cogs and chain rings happy.
