In my experience, nothing but nothing can clean a chain like WD40. There are theories as to why it may be bad to use as a lubricant and I have done a lot of research and reading into it. In the end though, in the real world, I think it performs better than most chain lubes and does less harm as well. We don't ride in a laboratory and if you ride regularly you don't end up cleaning the chain after every ride. Since I got onto the Bel Ray Superclean product things have been good so far and I hope that it does its job in the long term. We're it not for that, I would be using WD40 or good old fashioned grease before I ever went back the the overpriced, filth-attracting, chain abrading junk that most lubes are.
