A lot of people see chain maintenance as a pain in the ass when in fact its piss easy. All it really involves is lubing your chain and checking the tension every now and again. I tend to lube my chain after giving the bike a wash or before a big ride. At the same time I run my eye over the chain checking its slack.
I find a lot of people lube their chain wrong (IMO anyway) and end up with crap all over the rear of their bike and rim. I’ve thrown together a few pics to help you out.
Next wipe excess chain lube off with a rag as I have done in the video below.
And there you have it. Easy as pie and you don’t get sticky shit all over your bike.
