DESCRIPTION

Bike Milk is recommended by elite racers, weekend warriors, mechanics and the best bike shops as their preferred dry film chain lube.

The advanced formulation has a triple action CLEAN-LUBE-PROTECT which means the drivetrain runs very clean and quiet in both wet and dry conditions.

Bike Milk is a dry film chain lube which runs very clean:

  • Has excellent penetrating-cleaning-degreasing properties to remove grime buildup and assist lube flow throughout moving chain parts.
  • After film formation the chain stays exceptionally clean without attracting dust onto the drivetrain surfaces. 
  • Dry film coating means no wet residue buildup which can rub off to leave dark “grease” stains.
  • Leaves a protective film on the crucially important internal contact surfaces of the chain between rollers, bushings, pins and plates.
  • Employs a “RESERVOIR EFFECT” to deliver lube into moving parts as you ride.
  • Perfect drivetrain lubricant for shorter (up to 3h) and dry dusty rides or in beach/sand conditions.s.
  • Great value for money 185ml pack which lasts longer.
  • Also available in 50ml trail and 900ml workshop packs.
  • Proudly created and made in Australia.

 

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Stage 1: cleaning chain

  1. Degrease chain thoroughly before initial application.
  2. Adjust chain onto smallest rear sprocket.
  3. Shake BIKE MILK vigorously to re-suspend and disperse the active components.
  4. Rotate chain backwards and direct soaking stream of BIKE MILK onto moving chain at cassette. The chain should be visibly coated with BIKE MILK and look wet.
  5. Continue reverse chain rotation to allow BIKE MILK to penetrate, clean and flush contaminants from deep inside the chain.
  6. After 20 seconds thoroughly wipe the residue off the chain using dry cloth. This is important because the BIKE MILK will dissolve and flush the grease and dirt from the chain and carry it to the outer surfaces, and this needs to be removed from the chain.

In some cases this cleaning process may need to be repeated several times.

A full degrease is best on a routine basis or the first time Bike Milk is used on the chain.

Stage 2: Lubricate and protect

  1. Rotate chain backwards and direct soaking stream of BIKE MILK onto moving chain at cassette. The chain should be visibly coated with BIKE MILK and look wet.
  2. Continue reverse chain rotation to allow BIKE MILK to penetrate, flush and coat moving surfaces of the chain.
  3. Allow the BIKE MILK to dry on all of the metal surfaces of the chain to form a protective lubricating film. Leaving overnight is recommended. In very cold (freezing) conditions Bike Milk does not evaporate as fast and needs longer time to bond to the chain.
  4. Repeat this apply/dry lube process several times if chain has been fully degreased or a thicker film is required for endurance rides.

For dry riding conditions it is best to wipe residue from the surface of the chain with a clean rag prior to riding.  The chain will look clean on the outside and is less attractive to dust.  The lube remains active on the internal surfaces.  

The BIKE MILK should be left to dry on the chain to provide a protective water-repellant lube coating on inner surfaces of the drivetrain.  If the gaps inside the chain (between rollers, pins and plates) are packed with the tenacious film lubricant it will help prevent dirt and water from wicking into the gaps and increasing friction and wear. There is only minimal external surface coating left with Bike Milk, and most of the lubricant bound inside the moving parts of the chain.
