Description

Keep your chain running smooth

Rock 'n' Roll Gold Lube is the middle child of their three chain lubes. It's not as thick as the Extreme and not as thin as the Absolute Dry. It's good for both mountain biking as well as high-performance road riding. The folks at Rock 'n' Roll say this one gives the best chain performance in terms of making your shifting faster. Gold lube makes a geared bike feel like a fixed-gear; the movement is that smooth. Like the Extreme, the Gold has a gel membrane suspended in the fluid. The membrane seeps deep into the rollers and stays there, keeping the metal parts flexing, moving smoothly, shifting crisply, and doing everything quietly.

Rock 'n' Roll lube cleans and lubes at the same time. Dribble it on by putting the bike in its biggest gear and backpedal. Drip from the top over the chainring or cog. Wipe off the excess. Shift to the small ring in front to wipe off the big ring. Wipe till the chain shines. You can ride right away, but letting the excess evaporate for a few hours or overnight is best. Rock 'n' Roll recommends not re-lubing until you hear squeaking. If you have more than one Rock 'n' Roll lube in your tool chest, you can put on the thicker formulations when it's wet and then apply the thinner when its dry and you don't have to degrease in between.

Rock 'n' Roll Gold Lube comes in a 16oz. bottle and should last you for several seasons.

Great lube

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My favorite, go to lube for road and mtn bike. Lasts much longer on the road and do not have to reapply very often. Keeps the chain quiet, clean and well functioning. Mtn bike rides in UT and CO are dry and dusty so I have to reapply about every ride. During a long 7 hr dusty mtn bike ride I started to hear some chain noise but I'm not surprised given the amount of grit. Follow the directions for application and it works great. Much cleaner to work with than oil based lubes.

Best lube I've used

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I find that with this lube, it's not so much an oil... I reapply after every 1-2 rides (about 100 miles). As it says, clean off all excess, you can't wipe it down enough. Leaves the drive train silent, after 100 miles it starts to get black and pick up debris, but I believe this lube isn't thick enough to be left on for long durations. Excellent product if you're riding in the right terrain. I'm in PA and do road racing, perfect for what I do. Extremely recommended if you ride the road and like a clean quiet chain and don't mind frequent reapplications.

Works great but attracts dirt

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought about 6 months ago and have put about 600 miles on my bike since. Need to re-apply regularly (about every 150 miles) or my drivetrain starts making noise. Used on the road only, in Southern California only in the dry and it attracts dirt like a big dog in heat. Directions say to spray on pretty liberally, soaking up excess immediately, so that's what I did. Wiped chain as dry as I could get it and waited for it to settle in before riding. Runs smooth, but had to wipe black crud off of chain or it would get all over my shoes, socks and leg. If you want the ultimate protection, it works well, but not worth the mess!

A product worth trying

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Easy to apply, good shifting and keeps the chain clean. On 80-100 mile training rides this lube does not wear off like wax based lubes and the drive train stays quiet. Nice that you can buy it in bulk size bottles.

Favorite Lube

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This stuff is great, shake it up, put it on, wipe it off and you are good to go. I lube my chain up with this stuff before every ride and it keeps my chain clean and silent. Just the way I like it.

Not so Squeaky, but clean!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great product, When something says keep away from open flame, I know its gotta be good stuff. This is some of the best out there. Shake well, apply to your chain, have a beer, work on something else on your bike, then wipe fully off. Some of the quietest chain lube I've used and I have used tons and tons of products.

Quiet bikes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This product worked very well for me during the 2012 mtb season. I really liked how long is worked. Switched to WD40 Bike tho, and it's the only thing I'll use now. In a pinch I'd buy the gold again.

Simply Works

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been mountain biking for a long time and have used many different brands of chain lube. By far the Rock N Roll Gold seems to be the most functional. It lasts through 1-2 weeks of solid riding, including XC races.Rock N Roll actually made it so I ran an old chain too long - using this lube made my drivetrain a lot smoother than it should have. Just note that it is important to thoroughly wipe down the chain after application.

All good except the application process

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The good - makes drivetrain quiet, keeps chain (relatively) clean, really seems to clean the drivetrain as advertised.

The bad - the way you are supposed to apply it. It feels very wasteful to just drench the chain. In spite of all it's good qualities - Im not sure I can get over this part of it.

Also - as an aside, before using "Gold", I used the Absolute Dry (red). It also worked as advertised, but what a total mess to apply....

Need to try it again

I used a bottle of this last year on an old bike with an old chain. It seemed pretty good, but the results I'm sure, were hindered by the application it was used on. It was really easy to use. I want to try it now on my newer bikes with good chains.

Silky smooth and quiet

Works very well, and lasts. Admittedly, it's a little on the wet side and tends to attract road grime more readily than some other lubes that I've used, but I still love this stuff. Great price and great performance.

Best Lube Ive Used

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was hesitant at first cause i really hadn't heard much about it, but right after the first application i noticed a difference. No only that buy it comes with and applicator bottle and a big refill bottle. I would absolutely recommend this to any rider.

Rock N Roll Rocks

Rock N Roll lube is hands down my favorite chain lube for both my mountain and road bikes. Drivetrain is dead quiet, fast and it lasts. Good in all weather. I've tried everything else and this is the best I've ever used. I've tried the blue (thick) gold (medium) and red (dry) Rock N Roll lubes and the Gold one is the best all purpose viscosity. This is the best stuff out there.

*Best* *lube* *evar!!!*

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love, love, love Rock n' Roll lube.

Lubricates really well (although perhaps not absolutely as little friction as the best conventional lubes) but it lasts and lasts, and keeps your chain nice and clean. I ride mostly in dusty conditions, and find that the regular wet, oily lubes are like a magnet for dirt.

I've tried other waxy lubes (Pedro's Ice Wax and White Lightening) and think this is way better. Pedros seems just to turn into sticky gunk, and the White Lightening interacts horribly with other lubes.
