  1. Lubing my bike chains was a success. Cycling feels a little bit more smoother now. I think I have a little bit less resistance so I could cycle with one higher gear than usual with the same force. Maybe my brain tricks me thinking that. At least the gunk is scrubbed off. I wonder why there are no more bike chain covers that attempt to fully enclose the chain.

    1. @adiwan I think stuff like that and tire fenders fell out of favor due to so-called "weight weenies" but I know less than Jon Snow so.... :p

      1. @scribus Tire fenders are practically standard here as well as half-enclosed chain guards. Also a rack is basically standard, except for mountain and racing bikes. I just looked up and I found some after-market fully-enclosed chain guards. Only "Holland bikes" have the fully-enclosed bike chain guard out of the box. I guess I never put that much attention to that feature.
