    Yes he's right :)
    When I was commuting on them I'd stick something like SDoc100 white lube on as it protects the chain underneath from salt etc.
    But because I only ride perhaps once or twice a week now once salts down , I tend to stick with the Wurth and just wash/clean/relube each time :)
    However...I've just ordered some SDoc funnily enough as I'm getting more and more @Selmer50mark Can't be arsed these days lol

    Of course it doesn't affect me.

    The only water my bikes see is the summer bug clean.:)

    The older version was quite good compared to other brands I've ended up chucking in the bin.
    Never had winter rust on my chains.
    The recent can I ordered is a newer formula. It's gone on the chains well...you don't need much either. I'll report back once I've done a few hundred on them. Although I'm trying to avoid v crappy weather on the SP I have fully acf50 him as his pleas to go out with me from under his cosy quilt are quite heartbreaking and Ive no self control lol :D

    Never seen that stuff @Lozzy.

    I do have some Dr Wack products in my bedside dresser, but alas, nothing to do with bike lube!:eek::D
