    Do I understand correctly then that bike chains do not require lubrication and that we are misled that the chain lube/wax serve to lubricate the chain? If so, then the only purpose of such products are to provide rust protection? Geez, I think I would be better of to simply use gear oil on my chain...

    I've been quite happy with the Motul chain paste. A few squirts quickly spread everywhere.

    I'm pretty sure the lube still helps if you want any real mileage out of your chain/sprocket, but exactly what you use is less important.
