    How often do you oil your bike chain?

    Apply chain lube at least weekly in the winter.

    Apply chain lube after riding in the rain, or in the case of wet lube, just dry it off and if it is still oily the next ride you don't need to apply more lube.

    Apply chain lube to every roller.

    Let lube sit for a couple minutes at least and then wipe off excess.

    New chains come from the factory with oil already on them, so you probably don't need to add any extra chain lube when first installed.

    I use a dry lube bike chain oil.

    Dry means it is more likely to get washed off in rain but less likely to get sticky and dirty as fast.

    Bonus Tip: A little chain oil goes a long way.
