  • Lube & Camera

    Catchy title right? A question for each of these pictures:

    Are either of these cans of lube the stuff I should be buying for my bike chain or do I really need to go to a real auto shop?



    Has anyone got any experience with this camera? It's a K-mart GoPro knock-off and cheap.

    No, yes, no, maybe.

    But not necessarily in that order.
    Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

    when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

        I've only seen those cameras at K-mart but they look way to bulky for anything mc related and look pretty poorly built. I'd stay away.

        Also, proper chain lube is approx $12-$20 a can. Stick with the real stuff as cheap shit will just fling everywhere.

              Buy a decent lube, or you'll be looking at shorter chain life and a ridiculous amount of fling.

              Same with the camera; don't be fooled by 1080p resolution, the image is no use if the stabilization renders distorted slow frame rate movies. Also bikes suffer a lot of vibration which the decent cameras are built to withstand. That one will likely rattle to pieces in no time.

                Save camera money and spend it on improving your riding skills. One may save your life the other may only film your death.

                  Cool - will buy actual bike chain lube (or wax?) & give the camera a miss

                  Thanks for input ^_^

                    Geez! I looked at the thread title and expected it to be about a hidden speed camera somewhere
                    Chain lube I've always found the spray on types while good at not flinging don't really penetrate well on O ring type chains and attract heaps of dirt :o
                    The dry lubes and silicones I use on bolts/cables etc but not enough body for chains or other heavy moving parts
                    no experience with cameras (apart from having pics taken) so can't comment

                      Either. But may I recommend a brand to make it easy for you, Maxima Chain Wax. You can get everywhere.

                        Maxima chain wax and a TRAKDAYZ ticket.

                        And never.... ever... become a Motoflogger with a camera on the streets.
