Boeshield is a tried-and-true all purpose lubricant for any application that calls for a light, penetrating lubricant that won't collect excess dirt and grit. It works well for your chain, cables, brake/derailleur pivots, spoke nipples or even as a rust preventative inside your steel frame. The solvent and paraffin wax formula penetrates, cleans and displaces moisture before drying into a thin film that lubricates and protects your parts. If applied properly (all excess lube wiped away, allowed to dry for 2 hours or more before riding) the lubricant will not wash off or collect dirt.
We carry two sizes - a 4oz bottle that is perfect for the home workshop or a 1oz bottle that is an ideal size for your on-the-bike tool kit.
Application Instructions: Apply to lower run of chain by dripping onto rollers while turning the cranks backward. Allow lube to fully penetrate chain. Wipe off excess and allow to dry for 2 hours or more before riding. You can't wipe too much; there is no such thing as a chain that is too clean! Wipe until your chain is shiny and appears dry. Reapply when you start to hear your chain squeak or rattle, or after washing the bicycle.
