Make sure you thoroughly clean the chain first then lubricate it. And oh yeah, you posted this in the wrong threaddd =P

Well I sold my house yesterday and moved in to an Apt. Unfortunately my bike is not garaged right now. Next month though I'll put her in storage. Anyways, it's raining and I hate leaving it outside. I rode it in the rain today for the first time. Call me anal, but the only water that should touch my bike is soapy water. It was cool though...

Get a bike cover asap!


I rode the bike in the rain yesterday too. Kinda got stuck in a lil downpour on the way home from my buddy's house. Gave the bike a nice wipedown when i got home.

The grooves in the tires are there for a reason. Hell, I'll do trackdays in the rain. It's just water. Don't sweat it.

Had my first ride in the rain. It was kinda nerve-racking. I just took it nice and easy going home. Kept her straight up on painted lines and railroad tracks! Cleaned and lubed my chain soon as I got home.

what kinda lube would i need to use? and how do i go about doing that?
Sorry for taking so long to get back. For my chain I use a combination of Chain Wax and WD-40. Usuallly when i get home after riding in the rain I immediately spay it down with WD-40 so the water doesn't get settled in it. And I use chain wax whenever I do a complete cleaning of it.

Hope that helps.

Sting? What are you wearing, shorts and t-shirt? If riding in the rain 'stings', get some more gear on.
