Comments about Downeast WHITE LIGHTNING Self-Cleaning Wax Lubricant, 4 oz.:
I've been using white lightning for a few years on the family bikes. The bike in the family that gets used most is mine. An application of this lubricant does make cycling smoother, and it seems to last a while.
The lubricant seems to be some wax in a fluid. The recommendation is that you lubricate and let it dry. When it dries the wax is left behind.
I've been attracted to the concept that this is "self cleaning" - though after spending a couple of hours trying to clean my gears today I am not sure what that means. The theory with this lube is that it "sheds itself and with it, dirt and grime to prevent abrasive wear"
I'm not sure exactly how in theory this is supposed to "shed" dirt away, but in practice the dirt and waxy gum does not fall off magically, but instead accumulates all over the gears and derailleur. I spent a few hours trying to get it off - it doesn't dissolve with conventional detergents, so I went through two cans of solvent to remove the black gummy mess. An aspect of the accumulation on the derailleur is that it was infused with lots of hair that had gotten picked up.
