messy @$$ luber

Do all cable lubers barely work or is it just mine. I got mine with a can of lube and i probably gets 50% to the cable and 50% into the rag i have to wrap it with. they all like that? 'cause everyone ive used is messy.

Generally I just use WD40 or Kero to clean it then some white lithium on it... however, I have heard good things about Kleen Chain.

Most of them suck but aren't too bad if you use the right technique.

Rarely is the question stupid, but sometimes the answer is you need to run everything you read online through your own personal BS meter to determine if it makes sense to you.
