"Product Testing" Finish Line Ceramic Wet Chain Lube

For lubing bicycle chains over the years I have used practically everything under the sun.  Three in one oil comes to mind early on, engine motor oil, WD-40, Tri-Flow, many different spray lubricates, wet and dry graphite the list is long. Searching for a really good quality product to lube bicycle chains is relatively easy now a days. Most of my riding is done on the streets "black top" not gravel, not dirt trails. I like quiet running chains be it single or multi-speed drive train. Wet lubes seems to be the way I choose to go. In the last 3 or 4 years ceramic this...ceramic that...has been the buzz. So I thought here is a product with the latest greatest stuff in it... well since sliced bread. Finish Line Ceramic WET Bicycle Chain Lube so I got some and gave it a try (after reading about this product I couldn't resist). Here's the really good part,  it's GREAT STUFF! flows on smooth doesn't clog up (no need to shake the bottle), penetrates into rollers well, gives you a super quiet running chain, waterproof stays on the chain, doesn't sling all over the place so its not messy. It lasts for a good long while. No annoying fragrances or dyes. It's white clean looking right? Well it turns black pretty quick, this products works extremely well as advertised. Any how... that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Thanks for stopping by.
