My off road lube of choice

I've put it through the wringer

Squirt was really trendy when it came out years ago. Now there's lots of liquid-wax style lubes like it, but this is still my go-to! I prefer it off road, where a lot of dust and dirt can accumulate on my chain. The dirt does not stick around and gunk up your drivetrain if you use Squirt. With a bit of water and soap all the grime rinses right off, too! Don't degrease or you'll ruin the wax layer you've built up. Its not the all-time best at straight-up lubricating, so I find myself re-applying ever 50ish miles, or after a big ride. On road, I find that it accumulates a different, greasier kind of dirt. I prefer regular lube that I can degrease regularly for that use. I would NOT use this on a bike that you plan to both use on a trainer and ride outdoors. You'll notice that darker, hardened grease accumulating nearby as it flies off your cassette. PRO TIP: Squirt is thick stuff. Heat it in a mug of water just off the boil. Bonus points for preheating your chain with a hairdryer so it all sinks in. Let the product dry completely before riding.

Great lube!

I've put it through the wringer

I started using Squirt several years ago after reading an article in a biking magazine that rated all of the lubes then available. The best was parafin wax. But taking my chain apart, heating the wax, dipping it, hanging to let it dry, etc. was not going to work for me. This was rated #2 and I've been using it ever since. If you follow the directions & apply the day before or overnight to let it dry, it works like a charm without any wiping off of excess. But in a pinch, you can apply, wipe excess & you're still good to go. I always get compliments of how clean my drive train looks. I'm happy to get them but come on, this is not rocket science. The one observation I would make though is that you do need 1) a good degreaser and 2) a good chain cleaner to remove the potential wax buildup. And if you do get caught in the rain, you do need to clean and re-lube because the wax does get removed. But you should always do that anyway no matter what lube you use.

Thank you Fran, I'm from the school of if I am going to spend the energy on drivetrain maintenance, do it correctly. To your point, I've come to realize that the park degreasing agent is the culprit which doesn't dry. I will do this 2 or 3 times until the used fluid is relatively clean. I will try your advice. That is do it after riding & let it dry over night, before using the squirt lube. Thank you.

I've used it several times

So far, I have been liking it. In the past, I have used a traditional lube that you would just wipe off after application, but this one actually is supposed to stay on. It creates a waxy coating around the chain which seems to be helping with friction.

Works great

I've been using this stuff for a couple years now and it works great! It lasts a long time and makes for very smooth shifting. It's super weird but the directions say that you don't need to wipe the chain after application and I've found that actually works really well, the chain just soaks it in over time and I've never had a problem with it attracting dirt. You want the lube to be dry before you start riding so applying after a ride is a really great option.

Used it for years and don't plan to stop

I've put it through the wringer

I've been using this chain lube for nearly 10 years after a recommendation from a riding buddy. I prefer wax since it stays cleaner, but most weren't super durable, whereas Squirt tends to last longer and I can go longer between applications. As with most lubes, I've had best results applying to a clean, degreased chain.
