Rock "N" Roll Gold lubricant is recommended for road and mountain bike use, which is great because I’ve needed to use this lubricant on my cyclo-cross bike's chain as well as a couple of road machines over the winter. Before use I noticed the contents tend to separate out within the bottle with a waxy layer falling to the bottom, so you need to give it a good shake to mix everything up before starting.

Rock "N" Roll tells you to apply a stream to the chain as you turn the cranks, then rotate the chain backwards for around five seconds. This should be enough time for the lube to penetrate the chain and wash out any grime. It has a pretty standard nozzle so application is easy.
