    Finish Line Cross Country is the only lube I ever use, whatever the conditions. That said, it's wet here the majority of the time... sorry for the useless response

    I have used Rock 'n Roll Extreme (Blue) for everything for many years.

    Keep your drive train clean, use Tri-flow 99% of the time.


    Use something else if you ride in pure mud or freezing conditions (EG - Finish Line XC lube - mineral, no wax...)

    Progold > everything else. The only problem is I have no clue if you can get it in the US. I love mine.

    I rarely ride mud but often deal with dust and sometimes a lot of dust.

    Finishline Krytech wax is the cleanest and has enough durability for most DH days. At the end of the day a light hosing and re-application is all it takes to stay sparkling clean and slippery. On long, dusty XC rides it doesn't last well enough and the chain feels dry and rough in the last miles. So: Krytech when you can get away with it, Boeshield or Rock'n'Roll Gold for more endurance but a little more gunk to clean up (you'll want to use some degreaser). Tri-flow works almost as well as those two, is cheaper especially in large bottles, but collects a little more dirt and requires more cleaning (maybe not as good lubrication & longevity also).

    I have had decent luck with Finish Line Dry and ProLink ProGold...I think I liked the Finish Line a bit better, though. I tend to end up using Finish Line Wet, though. Things get a bit dirtier, but it lasts a bit better and keeps things quieter.

    1. Melt ski wax in saucepan/pot
    2. Place chain in pot
    3. Pull chain out with wire
    4. Hang in the open air to cool
    5. Curl chain around a bit to break wax
    6. Ride any conditions you want and not need to do anything to your chain for 3-6 months

    It doesn't get much drier/dustier than Phoenix. I've always used Dumonde Tech Lite.
