This is our shop lube. We use the regular strength greenish/blue stuff, but the lighter yellow "Lite" works well on road bikes.
Dumonde Tech lubricants are engineered to perform with a minimal carbon footprint. It is made of a liquid plastic it bonds to the chain and keeps your components clean, last longer and is quieter than other chain lubes. But you can also use Dumonde Lubes on your cables, pivots, and seals as it does not deteriorate or compromise plastic or rubber.
When you first apply Dumonde Tech Chain lubes it is recommended that you thoroughly clean and dry your chain first. Apply Dumonde Tech sparingly and wipe off access lube so the chains outer surface appears dry. Re-apply Dumonde Tech Chain lubes when your chain starts to make noise. Sound is a better indication that it is time to re-apply over appearance.
Dumonde Tech Original and Lite differ in only their concentration. Use the Original formula for your more extreme needs, mountain and cyclocross bikes. Use the Lite formula for your road bike. For your commuter you can determine which to use based on the conditions that you commute in. The two are interchangeable so you can go back and forth. When it’s time to clean your bike just use mild soap and water.
