How to apply:
1. Ensure the your bike is secure
2. Preferably clean the chain first, and dry. (A wipe down with a rag is better than nothing)
3. Work out how many times you need to spin the cranks for one chain circulation - Slowly turn the cranks backwards, watching a single chain link go all the way around.
4. Apply Green Oil to the top part of the bottom half of the chain (if that doesn't make sense, hopefully the diagram below does!). Apply to one length of the chain. Apply to the 'rollers', the cylinders on the chain.
5. Carefully spin the cranks a few times.
6. Wipe off excess from the outside of the chain with a rag. It’s most important to have lube between the links of the chain, rather than on the outside.
NB. If there is snow, it is not recommend not doing part 6, and putting two layers of Green Oil on, ensuring the whole chain is coated. Salt on the roads means you need extra protection, as salt causes rust- so lots and lots of chain oil is a good thing in these conditions. Generally though a thin layer is cleaner and more efficient.
