I have used the normal big brand Chain Cleaning products before but a few people use Paraffin, what do you use and where do you get it from as the only place I can seem to get it locally is B&Q.

Aldi are doing a great price on WD40 chain cleaner & chain lube and its extremely good stuff . You can usualy get parrafin by the litre from small diy shops, best to take your own container.

Chains !!!  Now I remember why I went for a shaftie.  I had a Scott Oiler fitted to the Katana - fantastic bit of kit - cut down the cleaning, adjustment & wear no end.  I used to use paraffin - I'm lucky enough to have an independent DIY shop down the road - sells everything

WD40 for me about one lube in 10! A mechanic told me he had seen a bike once with disintegrated rings due to dissolving quality of chain cleaners. If anyone wants a non aggressive degreaser, Wilkinson's citrus bike bicycle chain and gear cleaner is as cheap as chips and gentle (I clean my hands on it!) but chases of oil in a jiffy. I lube my chain and sometimes wipe the side with WD so it looks clean. Unless I have been riding in blowing sand, I rarely clean the links.
