    Squirt

    Bought myself a bottle and find that there are two camps regarding preparation.

    1. Slather it on without doing anything else.
    2. Get the chainset anticeptically clean first and then apply.

    being bone idle, camp 1 is my preferred option, but will gladly listen to arguments for and against both.

    Over to you....

    Option 2 is the only option imo.

    It's a one time deal though, you'll not have to do it again (clean the chain I mean) Iv never used it on a chain treated with another lube but I'm told it's a bad idea, especially if it's got a wet lube on it.

    Leaving grit and oil on the parts will affect how it works I would think.

    And just remember that to degrease it properly you must dismantle the chain link by link, degrease and reassemble.
