I use Prolink at the moment for a SRAM 10sp setup. Seems to work quite well.

Bought the spray bottle size from Cell Bikes on special last year. Do notice that after a while chain gets very fine black gunk on it which can be wiped off with a rag and Prolink reapplied.

Tend to run kero in a chain cleaner and cycle the chain through for a thorough clean, and repeat until kero and chain is clean(er) looking and then reapply Prolink.

Waiting on some KMC links so I can remove chain to soak in kero when needed.

pro-link is good stuff, i like the "tube" for application...... lost my pro-link and switched to rock'n'roll and it's a bitch to apply / squeeze out of the bottle at s drop flow.

Are any Australian made?

FWIW I use this:

I was just wondering what is the best way to apply lubricant.

Do i just get a rag and wipe off any 'junk' off the chains and then apply some lubricant on the chain and roll it through the different gears.
Also, how much lubricant do you put? Just a bit on every chain link or just the bottom half??

I have read many here use Inox as the Aussie option.

Anyone use Penrite products at all?

The "Lanox" or MX4 is a better option it has more lanolin in it. Dries to being quite dry and only a little greasey.
