Looking for a chain lube that’s baller approved? As in, the stuff made by people that build, ride and eat/sleep/breathe bikes for a living? NFS could be it.
Nix Frix Shun was developed by Josh Simonds, one of the main guys behind Velocipede Salon and The Baller’s Ride. It’s an industrial strength chain lube that needs only a minimal amount on the chain but lasts up to 300 miles per application. The formula quickly seeps into the chain, getting between the links and rollers for smooth, quiet operation while moving dirt, dust and gunk out to the surface to be wiped away. And that’s all the maintenance they suggest, just wiping the chain, until you start to hear your chain getting “dry”. At which point you simply use about 5 drops worth to restore lube levels and carry on. They say it’ll withstand moisture, whether it’s rain or bike wash stations.
The bonus? It supports the Baller’s Ride, which ultimately supports much of the innovation squirted into the industry by some of the best handmade bicycle builders around…
A small 2oz bottle goes for $15, and they say it’ll last a very, very long time. Initial application should only use about 10 drops, and subsequent lube jobs half that. I’ve put it on one of my bikes and it both smells like an industrial lube and seems to work like magic.
All profits subsidize travel costs for frame builders attending the Baller’s Ride, an annual gathering of top frame builders to mingle, talk shop and learn. And ride. A lot, apparently, and we’re planning on popping in this year for a look at what everyone’s riding…if I can keep up. Get a bottle at BallersRide.com or ask for it at your local shop.
