A Preview of The New “Green” Chain Lubes

As cyclists, we don’t use much oil, but we do have to keep our chains lubed. Well, now we can lube our chains with “green” chain lube and help the environment even more!

Most of these lubes are based on a natural substance such as soybean oil. Have a look for yourself:

Dumonde Tech G-10 Bio Green Bike Lubricant

G-10 Bio Green bicycle chain lubricant is 100% plant based and 100% biodegradable. Highly concentrated, low-friction film layer keeps components clean and quiet running for long periods of time, while resisting being washed off. (In other words, it has the high quality of regular Dumonde Tech lube, but in a “green” formula.)
