Question / Issue: “My road bike seemed to collect a lot of grime when using SCC SLICK."
Answer: If you continue to wipe your road bike chain post ride (step #7 listed of the application instructions), without re-lubing or using degreasers, you’ll start to notice within 2 to 4 rides your chain will manage to stay much cleaner and will collect much less build up from ride to ride.
Explanation: SCC SLICK is a complex formula with 4 components: lubricant, penetrant, detergent and dispersant. These components work in combination to displace and float contamination trapped in the micro-crevices of chain to the outer links as you ride, effectively SCC SLICK is able to better clean the chain the more you ride. You should notice the chain maintains its “slickness” despite the contamination on the outer links allowing you to wipe it off without using more lube or having to degreasers. Once majority of the contamination is worked out of the chain and is wiped off the cleaner it will appear from ride to ride.
