Rohloff Special Chain Lubricant 50ml
Special Chain Lubricant
The Rohloff Special Chain Lubricant has been developed in co-operation with a leading German manufacturer especially for the bicycle chain and the automatic chain lubrication system Rohloff Lubmatic.
It is based on a synthetic oil and special DCS-additives which guarantee:
- high resistance to pressure
- maximum lubrication capacity • water-repulsion
- rust prevention
Furthermore, the Rohloff Special Chain Lubricant is biodegradable and totally harmless to water.
In order to test its ability of degradation, the lubricant is mixed with sewage plant germs and then one counts the percentage of lubricant which has been degraded after 21 days. Around 90% of the lubricant were degraded after this period of time and the rest only some days later.
The Rohloff Special Chain Lubricant comes in a 50ml plastic bottle which can be refilled. This additional feature is important in countries like Germany where the refilling of the bottle can be marketed successfully due to the environmental awareness of the consumers.
On the versions with an internal gear mech the cable adjusters are to be found on the cable guide. This can be found on the left hand chain stay or attached to the left hand brake boss of the frame.
On the versions with an external gear mech the cable adjusters are to be found on the cable box which sits directly on the left hand side of the Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14.
When lubricating the chain place a thin thread of lubricant on the outside of the chain over the centre rollers, this process is carried out quicker and easier when running the chain backwards whilst applying the lubricant.
To lubricate the chain tensioner place a drop of oil on the left and right side of the upper jockey wheel on the pivot point.
Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14 versions with external gear mech: To lubricate the cable pulley bearing remove the cable box and place a little grease on the parts arrowed in the diagram above.
