  • The chain should be VERY clean and dry before applying
  • Apply according to video and let dry for AT LEAST 12 hours for optimal results, 24 hours if applied in cool or humid weather conditions!  We recommend applying the lube AFTER your ride so it’s ready for next time!  See Chart Below for more Info
  • NOTE: Over time the WS2 will begin to settle to the bottom of the bottle, shake well before using!

The Environment:

Best of all perhaps is that this formula would prove to be very environmentally friendly, utilising 4 different types of wax, nanoplatelets of WS2 (Tungsten Disulfide), and mild alcohol to act as a carrier.  This same alcohol is used in the SILCA Gear Wipes, making them a perfect product to clean and remove Secret Chain Lube.

FIRST: CLEAN your Chain
Method 1:  On-bike cleaning
1. Use a degreaser and brush and begin working the degreaser into the chain links
2. Silca recommend 6-8 revolutions of the chain, scrubbing all sides of the chain with  the brush to work the degreaser into the links and rollers
3. Hose the chain directly just in front of the rear derailleur pulley.  DO NOT DIRECT PRESSURE onto cassette, hub/axle or BB areas
4. With clean brush and strong dish soap/water mixture (Silca like ~1 tablespoon Dawn in ~2 cups water) work through the chain again, scrubbing all sides and trying to drive out any remaining dirt as well as any trapped solvent
5. Direct spray rinse the chain again
6. Dry chain with towel/paper towels and allow to air dry in sun for at least 30 minutes OR (preferred) Direct Blow with high-pressure air to drive out remaining liquids and particulates
APPLYING THE LUBE (NOTE UPDATE!)
1. Be sure to have chainline relatively straight (53/15 or so)
2. Shake bottle well and open tip halfway
3. Begin applying drip lube to the top of rollers while pedaling backward.  Be sure to apply at least 1 drop per roller and no more than 2 drops per roller while continuing to backpedal.
4. Use fingers on top-bottom of chain to work the lube into rollers while backpedaling at least 3-4 revolutions.
5. Pedal forward shifting all the way to top of the cassette, pedal for at least 3-4 revolutions.  The extreme chain angle opens gaps between plates to allow the lube to better work into the chain. Continue pedaling, shifting through all gears on the rear cassette at least once.
6. Stop pedaling and allow Secret Chain Lube to dry for minimum of 12 hours, test results show that lube is fully hardened in 24 hours.  ZeroFrictionCycling found SSCL to be the best dry lube EVER Tested after 8 hours of drying, but would be EVEN BETTER after 24 hours!!
7. SILCA Gear Wipes may be used to remove any excess lube from chainrings if you desire a cleaner look.
Note: Temperature and Humidity will affect the drying time of SSCL, and the dryer it is when you ride it, the longer it will last.  Drying time will also be affected by temperature, lube will dry faster in warmer temperatures and at lower humidity, and lube will take longer to dry in cold or more humid conditions. Silca recommend 24 hours as the optimal drying time.
