Rock 'n' Roll Gold Lube is the middle child of their three chain lubes. It's not as thick as the Extreme and not as thin as the Absolute Dry. It's good for both mountain biking as well as high-performance road riding. The folks at Rock 'n' Roll say this one gives the best chain performance in terms of making your shifting faster. Gold lube makes a geared bike feel like a fixed-gear; the movement is that smooth. Like the Extreme, the Gold has a gel membrane suspended in the fluid. The membrane seeps deep into the rollers and stays there, keeping the metal parts flexing, moving smoothly, shifting crisply, and doing everything quietly.
Rock 'n' Roll lube cleans and lubes at the same time. Dribble it on by putting the bike in its biggest gear and backpedal. Drip from the top over the chainring or cog. Wipe off the excess. Shift to the small ring in front to wipe off the big ring. Wipe till the chain shines. You can ride right away, but letting the excess evaporate for a few hours or overnight is best. Rock 'n' Roll recommends not re-lubing until you hear squeaking. If you have more than one Rock 'n' Roll lube in your tool chest, you can put on the thicker formulations when it's wet and then apply the thinner when its dry and you don't have to degrease in between.
