When It Comes To Cycling, Make Sure You Embrace The Extreme
Extreme Lube is the most vicious of Rock 'n' Roll's lube formulations. It's for the nastiest, gnarliest, wettest, and muckiest conditions. Extreme Lube has a gel membrane suspended in the fluid. The membrane seeps deep into the rollers of each pivot, keeping the chain joints flexing, moving smoothly, shifting crisply, and doing everything quietly.
Rock 'n' Roll Extreme Lube cleans and lubes at the same time. Dribble it on by putting the bike in its biggest gear and backpedal. Drip from the top over the chainring or cog. Wipe off the excess. Shift to the small ring in front to wipe off the big ring. Wipe till the chain shines. You can ride right away, but letting the excess evaporate for a few hours or overnight is best. And, despite the fact that this is Rock 'n' Roll's wettest lube, it's still drier and cleaner than much of what's available on the market. Rock 'n' Roll recommends not re-lubing until you hear squeaking. If you have more than one Rock 'n' Roll lube in your tool chest, you can put on the thicker formulations when it's wet and then apply the thinner when it's dry and you don't have to degrease in between.

Mfg PartNum: EXTREME 4
I have been using Rock n Roll gold formula for the last couple of years and it was a game changer for me. Very easy to apply, lubricates very good and keeps your chain mostly clean.
The only downside was under raining conditions or a lot of dustï¿½ it goes away pretty fastï¿½ in a long ride I would need to reapply.
This is where the blue stuff comes in. It is mostly the same performance and it stays a little longer.
I've been using Rock-N-Roll Gold for several years now. I don't believe in magic and any lubricant will wear off or get dirty in time, but given my good experience with R-N-R Gold I decided to try Extreme during the Michigan winter. So far so good, it seems a little thicker than Gold and really made the chain quiet. I haven't tested it in real wet dirty conditions yet but I expect it will perform as advertised given my experience with Gold. Just my 2 cents and advice, get two or more chains and change them regularly. I remove the old chain, clean it, and then put it in a coffee can covered with lubricant. That way I always have a fresh chain waiting. If the chain that is currently in operation looks clean but is creaking, I just freshen up the lubrication.
Been using this for years. Great for dusty conditions. Chain stays cleaner than most other lubes Ive tried. Biggest plus is extended chain wear. I keep track of mileage on my chains. Always use a Park chain checker. Probably get 20% more mileage on my chains when using this lube. Less wear equals less rolling resistance. Only drawback is application. I saturate chain with this lube and it is messy. Learned to place old cardboard under bike when lubing chain. Keeps it off of my garage floor.
I choose Rock N roll over oil based lubricants as it simultaneously cleans and lubricates. The wax lubricates but attracts less dirt which should reduce link wear. No black, dirt filled, solidified oil accumulation on chain, cassette, rings, bike frame, clothing or fingers!
I have been using this chain lube for a little more than a year. It seems to work very well and the chain doesn't seem to retain dirt nearly as easily as with some other brands. This lube also has some very low rolling resistance numbers associated with it from some independent tests I've seen reported on the internet.
