Just Plain Bitter
I can not believe that you guys are arguing about keeping your bike clean! To the OP, I am with you on this one, To the guy that has 10 DA chains in his toolbox, You get a Brownie Badge! Must be nice to have $400.00 bucks tied up in chains in your tool box. That's a weeks groceries in my house! I ride Campagnolo and a KMC11SL is $70.00 bucks a pop, real Campy is $100.00. I don't buy it unless I need it. I wash and wipe the bike down after every ride, I clean and lube my chain and other parts every 2 weeks. Just the crap from my bottles on my frame and components is enough to make me clean my bike after every ride. Cleaning and lubing a chain is just good maintenance and prolongs the life of you Chainrings and Cassette. Let alone if I have to change a flat on the road I don't want to get that dirty anyway! I also keep nitrile gloves in my saddle bag, never know when some guy who doesn't clean his bike is going to need help changing a flat!
