Keeping this in consideration, is wax a good lubricant?
Generally wax based lubes (here, I'm not talking about dipping your chain in hot paraffin wax, but of liquid lubes with wax in them) are best in dry conditions. “Wet” lubes are best in wet conditions. Wax based lubes are a type of “dry” lube. Wax based lubes tend to reject dry dust and dirt quite well.
what type of chain lube should I use? Every bike cupboard should have both a wet and dry lube. Dry lubes are for the driest conditions and cleanest chains. Wet lubes can be used all year, offer better value and have the greatest longevity.
Also Know, what is the difference between chain lube and chain wax?
The only real difference is the way to apply it to the chain. Lube is more fluid and it will take time for the oil to penetrate the o-rings properly.
Is Motul Chain Lube good?
Motul Chain Lube is better than 3M. Motul Chain Lube helps in diminishing rubbing between metal connections and reducing wear and tear. A very much oiled chain will move with less protection, will last more, and won't destroy alternate parts of the drive prepare.
