The smoothest

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

This stuff is thiiiiiick and smooth. I was super worried at first that it would attract a lot of dust due to being so thick, but I am pleased to announce that this isn’t the case IF applied correctly. If it’s not applied correctly, then dust will be attracted to it. After some trial and error, I’ve come up with the best method to make this one of the longest lasting/smoothest chain lubes you can use. First off, I’ll typically put the lube on the night before a ride. I’ll put a generous amount along the chain, then without wiping it off, let it soak in overnight. Then the next day before the ride, I’ll go through with a shop rag and clean each individual link and pieces connecting to make sure that no lube is left on the outside. What matters for any chain and lube is that you get it in between the links where the chain pivots, so this insures that and keeps the remaining lube off of the outside of the chain to avoid dust clinging. Overall, it’s not quite necessary to do this for the chain lube to perform well. However, this is the best method I’ve found for this lube to last long and give a super smooth ride. Although it seems like a lot of work, doing this will make the chain lube one of the best you can buy and take away one more aspect that you don’t have to worry about so that you can enjoy your ride instead.

The Sound of Silence

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Listen closely. Do you hear that? That is the sound of silence after using Hardcore's Chain Butter for the first time. I have always been a big proponent of the "if it ain't broke" theory when it comes to chain lube but after giving this formula a try I am completely hooked. If you are looking for a dry lube to minimize drivetrain noise this is one of the safest bets out there.

Makes for a quiet drivetrain

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I've been using this lube for just over a month now and have found this to be the quietest lube I've used so far. It put it through the wringer riding the gravel roads of Routt Co, CO made famous by the SBT GRVL event. The fine dust generated from riding these gravel roads has little effect on this chain butter. (It has a butter fragrance too) As with most lubes I will reapply before each ride; but have gotten away with two 2.5hr rides on one application. Towards the end of the second ride the drivetrain was just starting to make some noise, but nothing too concerning. I do follow the instructions and apply it liberally and give it some sit time before wiping it down and heading out on a ride. I plan to stick with this lube for awhile. I had been using ProLink wet/dry lube; but that never gave the quietness in the drivetrain this lube does.

Probably the best lube I've used

You're not a real cyclist until you have a favorite lube. This stuff dethroned mine. "Jack of all trades, master of none" is an overused cliche, and I'm happy to report that it doesn't apply to Chain Butter. I'm comfortable saying "Master of all trades." This stuff really is the Assos/SRM/Pinarello of the lube world. It's the fastest, cleanest, easiest lube I've ever had the pleasure to use, and it's probably going to be my go-to moving forward. It's a touch more expensive than some other options, but the extra five or six bucks is worth it, and given the fact that this stuff lasts two or three times as long per application (even in heavy dust), it's honestly pretty economical.

The lube we needed but didn't deserve

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

So after a thorough cleaning of my bike with the bike hardcore products, I was stoked to try this chain lube out. I'm currently running it on both my gravel bike and my road bike and the results have been astounding. I've tried a lot of chain lubes in the last while and found that for the dusty desert we live in here in Utah, I always end up needing to reapply chain lube every couple of rides for road or every 10 miles on the gravel. When I go to apply them, I always find that my chain is disgusting and then I end up just piling on more lube on top of filth. Not so with chain butter! Comparatively, my chain stays pretty clean in between applications and the chain butter has my drivetrains running SILENT compared to other brands. For road, I went well over 150 miles before re-applying my lube, but likely could have done another 150 before really needing to. If you're in need of a dry lube... this one is for you. Just be aware. You might not ever want another one if you do!
