Rated 5 out of 5 by from T-9 excellent quality and value. This lube has so far outperformed the others I've tried in terms of its effectiveness at lubrication on my chain, (I haven't used it elsewhere yet, but plan on doing extensive winter lubrication prep. with it on my winter bikes), keeping it cleaner longer. Once you apply, and I did so sparingly, one drop per chain link, and let it dry for at least two hours per directions on bottle, there wasn't even any excess to wipe off (and attract dirt and build grime). Chain has remained clean for two weeks now, riding every day at least ten miles, as we've had very nice late-October weather. Will update when wet weather arrives over next week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I've tried I've been working on bikes since 1976. This is the best stuff I've found and I've tried most of the others. Here's how I use it: Using a Park chain scrubber, I insert the T9 from the top holes of the chain scrubber and pedal backwards. I cover the holes with a small square of paper towel first to slow the application of the T9. Then I remove the chain scrubber and run through all the gears. This coats the cogs, chain rings and derailleur plates. I tune up all my friend's bikes each spring. The very first thing I do is I check the chain with a chain checker. Chain wear is almost unobservable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all-purpose solvent and lube Put this on my dirty chain and it ate everything else away, almost like a degreaser would. Then it ran smooth and buttery. Also put it on my brake and shifter cables, then disassembled my shifters and put a drop of this lube on every component in there. They shift better than ever now. Lasts a long time. I like that it dries to a thin waterproof wax finish. Impressed by the quality of this lube, I used it on a few non-bike related items as well. I oiled my pocket knives with it and applied some down inside a padlock to keep it working smoothly. Absolutely no complaints on either count!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is Great Stuff I've used T9 on my cables and chains for a long time -- more than 15 years I think. I live in the southeast US, bike in and around lots of sand and loose soil. T9 is the best I've used. In my experience, better than TriFlo and Phil tenacious oil (and all the others I've used that I can't remember). It's cheap enough…give it a try and I think you'll like it. Oh, and it's best to apply the lube to your chain the day before a ride to give it a chance to dry to a nice waxy film so as to minimize dirt and sand sticking to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been workin' on the Chain Gang.... Arizona is filled with fine dust. It ruins chains that are "wet" lubed. Years ago I switched from wet (oil based) lubes to "dry" lubes to prevent infiltration of dust that was wearing out my chains in 1500+/- miles. (Also very dirty and made for everyday epic cleanup periods). I've used other teflon and/or parafin based lubes that did the job but required very frequent reapplication as the lube would migrate and/or disappear. T-9 on the other hand clings and stays in place for a much longer time! I get 4-600 miles before reappling lightly. The chains on my four bikes now last 3-4500 miles before replacement. Completely remove any trace of old (or original) lube before applying T-9 the first time. This will guarantee adherance to the metal. Allow overnight to dry! Just wipe the chain with a wet "baby wipe" every couple of rides. Perfect product, perfect results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff--Been using it for many years.... In 1989, I walked into a bike shop in Tempe, Arizona to buy lube for my new bike. Asked the guy what do you recommend? He says, "if you can afford it, Boeshield is the best." "It was developed to lubricate aircraft engines," he explains. If it is good enough for Boeing, I thought that it must be good enough for my bike chain. I am still using it and have used it on many bikes since: mountain, road, and hybrid. I even use it on the most expensive Dura-Ace chain on my road bike too. I got other cyclists using it too. For one full year in 2013, I diverted to try something new. There was a fad of riders trying Dumonde Tech Lite—all this hype about it. Dumonde was okay, quiet for the first 100 miles, but it goes on very wet, attracts a ton of dirt, and made a mess of my drive train. It also required more cleaning maintenance than T-9. I prefer a clean drive train. So in 2014, I returned to Boeshield T-9 and I think I will stay here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lube to date!! I have tried many lubes in my years of cycling; you can see my review of other lubes on this website, and this is by far the best lube I have ever used. It almost magically picks up no dirt and keeps the drive train VERY clean. It lasts for many, many miles before needing to be reapplied and doesn't wash off easily. When it is due for reapplication simply wipe the chain down, apply, let dry for 2 or more hours and then wipe off excess! Excellent lube!! Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it After 10 years of experimentation, this has become my primary commuter lube. It doesn't attract dirt (like wet lubes) and keeps the drivetrain quiet. I like it very much in Texas for dry conditions, but I'd probably go back to a wet lube in a rainier area. I'd only like it more if it was all natural like the Pedros Bio lubes.
