Just replaced my sharks tooth chainset on my cx, my own fault due to my own shabby maintenance routine. Anyway, have turned over a new leaf (honest!) And have promised myself to keep on top of cleaning. I have 100% success rate so far! However, it occurred to me what applying the wet lube that surely this could be part of the problem. Doesn't it's sticky nature actually attract dust and dirt, thus exacerbating the problem? I know dry lube has it's place, but why exactly is wet considered superior for most if the year? Please bear in my mind that I'm asking this in relation to off road/trail riding on a cx, rather than just the straightforward grime of the road.
