Smile Purchase Dry/Wax Chain Lube in BC?

Hi All -

I am a proud owner of an K7 Wee, and I am looking for some guidance on purchasing some of various kinds of dry/wax chain lubricant that are discussed in this forum. I have been to all of the obvious places here in the BC Interior, but nobody seems to have any idea of where to find them.

Any guidance on where to shop would be appreciated! I can't wait for the snow to go away until it is riding season again!

Thanks

I have been using Maxxim chain wax with great success. Pretty much any bike shop carries it.

I've used Maxima, Motul, and my fav so far is BelRay Super Clean.

I used to use Maxima until I did 90km of dirt road in Arizona. My chain became so caked with sand and dirt that it took forever to clean up.

Bel Ray doesn't attract dirt and even better doesn't fling off(and stays on well in the wet n nasty weather). Most bike shops should carry it.

But chain lube, like oil, can be a pretty subjective topic that tends to be pretty personal. ;-)

Thanks for the quick replies - I will try to find some of the Bel Ray or order some from the states. Almost time to get started on spring riding, just have to wait until this foot of snow in the front yard melts...
