Taking off wax lube
#1
Hello,

Any good ways to take wax lube off a chain? I tried it out on the recommendation of my local bikeshop owner, and I don't really like it, and would rather just return to the lube I've been using for a few years now. Anything special I need to do to get it off, or before I return to my old lube?

Thanks.

I would think that any good degrease would clean the chain and take off all the wax I like White Lighting it cleans very well.Then lube it up run through the gears then wipe off the excess with a rag by back peddling.
Hope this helps you out.Smile

Remember it's mind over matter
if you don't mind it doesn't matter

Yeah a degreaser of any sort. Remove the chain and soak it for a few minutes and lightly scrub it with a old toothbrush. Or something abrasive. Blow it out with compressed air(don't forget eye protection), or leave it dry in the sun.
