Their site says it does do this, but it would be nice to see reviews. I am interested in it more for the cleanliness aspect than anything else, provided it does still actually do a good job of lubing the chain.

If something like this basically works economically, I will probably stop thinking about other bikes with shaft drives.

No email reply after a week and upon placing product in the cart to see if shipping rates come up, message says no shipping to US. So no response from these guys. Kind of too bad because I was interested in giving this a try. Could call, but if they won't shoot off an email, not real confident about CS.

I have sent two email messages and received no response. Too bad. I would really like to try this type of product. I am tired of taking time time to spray the chain when I get home, while it is warm, when I have lots of other things to tend to. I have thought about oilers, but I think that installing one, inspecting it, topping it off, and wondering about the flow rate would drive me even more nuts.

Like rubbing Corn on the Cob on a cube of butter. Fascinating
I remember getting blocks of polishing compound like that..
I guess a block of rouge wouldn't be a good idea though.

lubes

So let me get this straight.... $170 for a block of solid lube that lasts 6000 kms??? 1 can of Belray clean lube that has lasted me 9000 kms so far and is not empty yet for 15 bucks???? not a tough choice. I'll stick with Belray. Clean, Easy, Simple.

It depends on how much you are willing to pay for the convenience. I am pretty frugal, but when I pull into my garage I have other things to tend to besides lubing my chain. I know it only takes a minute, but I still find the chore very annoying. If this new idea has merit and is marketable, no doubt others will bring similar products to market and drive down the pricing. I would also be interested in some kind of a maintenance free chain with reduced service life.
