Re: Bicycle repair and general maintenance question

I have the normal U brakes so no worries plus I would never lub brake contact area. Btw I found a brand new chain lub spray can in my basement (from last year). It's from coop and it's called "Leopard Chain Lube" . Says that it's bio-degradable. Not sure if that is a good thing from lub point of view.

Text on the can-

Kettenspray für die optimale schmierung und pflege aller fahrradketten. Hervorragende und dauerhafte schmiereigenshaften. Scmutz- und wasserabweisend, verklebt weder kette noch andere kamponenten, schütz nachhaltig vor korrosion.

Anwendung: Sorgfältig auf gereiningte kette aufsprühen und kurz einwirken lassen.

Zusammensetzung: Vollsynthetische, biologish, abbaubare basisoele, verschleiss- und reibungsmindernde zusätze, Korrosionsinhibitoren, haftzusätze.
Achtung: nich auf bremsteile sprühen


ChrisW I will try to buy the one you recommended tomorrow.

I bought my bike new for CHF 1400-1500. I will definitely clean it tomorrow. I am pretty sure it is just a lub issue as I have not been lubricating it regularly.


Just reading the link that Blueshrimp posted. The accident tips page was scary!
