I've tried several different brand in the last 9 years and this stuff seem to makes my drivetrain (2018 Shimano 105) run quieter and smoother than w/ the other oils.
This is how I use it. After a ride ( usually 40 + miles, all road, and moderate hill climbing ), I wipe the chain down and put a drop on each bushing, spin it slowly for 30 seconds, wipe then I'm done. Makes my bike shift like a brand new Di2. :-) Once you get the hang of it, hardly takes anytime. I ditched the messy, medieval chain cleaner device once I started the routine w/ P Gold.
I use this lube on all my bikes, mountain and road. Have for many years. For dry dusty conditions as in Colorado I think this is the perfect lube. Provides very good lasting lubrication. I will occasionally refresh the chain between washes and find that it loosens up dirt very nicely. Appreciate the biodegradable friendliness also.
For the price it's unbeatable. I pray it never goes off the market!
I've been using prolink for a long time. In the past I've done a lot of ultra marathons but in recent years nothing over 125 miles. The prolink goes on easy and keeps the chain and drive train very clean. Of course I always wipe chain with a cloth before and after applying. Simply put it does not attract grime like many other lubes.
I don't quite trust it for the longer rides, opting then for a wax based lube or taking the prolink with me on the ride. But again, for up to 125 miles, no problem.
For the above reasons it is not the best pivot point lube but if you take good frequent care to maintain your ride and apply it often, say once every five to ten rides, it will serve you well there too.
I've been using ProGold for many years, it's the best I've found. I'm averaging over 4k year mostly commuting. This is for a road and cyclocross bikes, typically reapplying every 200 miles or so... with doing this and keeping the chain fairly clean I average around 3.5k to 4k per chain (10 and 11 speed). This is in a dusty but dry environment (Phoenix). A little goes a long way, so don't go crazy and be sure to wipe the chain down after application - good stuff.
I'm new to the ProGold ProLink lube - I prefer a dry lube but was looking for something that would actually last in the dusty conditions where I liveride. ProGold is great - super light on the chain - and lasts for a couple rides - in full summer conditions on gravel roads.
I'm new to ProGold lube. Previous user of finish line dry and tri-flow. ProGold is light and effective. I'm using it on a roadgravel bike in dry dusty conditions. It does not attract dirt (like tri-flow), it actually lasts for a hundred miles of riding (unlike finish line dry) and handles being hosed down after a ride without needing reapplication. It's my new favorite chain lube.
I've been using ProGold for years. I've tried others, but nothing runs as well or as clean as this one. I ride a lot during the wet winters here in the PNW, so I apply it more often than some of the other, heavier, lubes, but it's worth it.
I ordered this to try something else. The other lubes were good - very good - but no matter how diligent I was with application, wipe down, puddle avoidance, etc, my drive train turned black after two rides. My chains lasted (DA or Ultegra only, 3500-4500 miles), but it took constant attention, cleaning, wiping, re-application, and diligence.
I ordered ProGold ProLink, both Heavy Duty and Regular (HD is for my rain bike). I cleaned the drivetrain, let it dry, then applied in accordance with the directions.
The next morning I rolled out for a ride (mid-winter, lots of salt, cinders, and dirt) and rode 20. The drivetrain was quiet (good) and remained silver (VERY good). I rode the next week indoors (snow, ice, wind is unfun). Still clean. I rode 30 outdoors on Saturday - still clean.
This is the first lube I've used in over 30 years of road cycling that doesn't attract and hold dirt - it's amazing. It smells like kerosene (and that may be the secret) but I don't care. This stuff is GREAT, and I can highly recommend it! Just keep away from open flames while applying.
This was not available at the local bike shops here, and I'd heard good things about it. I bike commute daily, and have tried many, and have to say this is turning out to be my favorite. Excellent lubrication, nor does it seem to cake up or collect a bunch of grime and dirt. My cassette and chain stay cleaner. This is not a super heavy oil, nor is it so light that it washes out with a couple of rains. Am very pleased.
