Hey folks, any thoughts on the best chain lube for cold weather riding? I'm a huge fan of Tri flow, especially for wet weather and muddy conditions. Tri flow says its good from -60 to 475 degrees F.

Cory,

The Pedro's ice wax works well for me. It's thick and probably best stored in a heated area during the winter. A lesson learned though, don't use it in the summer. Too messy and collects a lot of dirt.

I have a big bottle you are welcome to try before you buy your own. The weather is looking good but it'll be a cold start again. Are you racing? There are several people from Columbus racing.

I'll throw the bottle in my car for when I see you next at Iceman or on the trail. It's definitely not something to use with all the sand up there.
