Bella, your information is suspect, or perhaps just down right wrong. You are aware that there's chain lube inside those o-rings, right? The o-rings are rubber; they don't get damp.
Aussie Sprint, you won't go wrong with DID x-ring, but you'll pay a lot more than I do for my EK 530SRX x-rings. X-rings are much better than o-rings, BTW.
I have just shy of 37,000 miles on my current chain, which I've lubed every 500 or so with DuPont Teflon lube. I don't think you can get this stuff down under, but Lanotec liquid lanolin apparently has very similar properties. My previous chain probably did about 14,000 miles before it was well and truly done. My current chain could probably go another 5,000, maybe 10,000, before it's as bad as the old one was. That's all down to environment, really. The chain before this went through two NYC Winters full of salt and snow; this one's only seen salt twice in the three and a half years it's been on the bike.
