NixFrixShun(tm) aka "NFS"
Ladies and Gents the wait is over. NixFrixShun is a over-the-top quality chainlube which is VERY quiet, long lasting and will work very well in all conditions.
Not like other lubes where most of the bottle is filled with solvents, NFS is 100% product. Each bottle contains approximately 10,000 miles worth of bicycle chain lubrication.
Owing to my past employment history I've got deep knowledge with high tech industrial lubricants. That and the never ending quest to find something that will last one week of commutes in all weather and actually does the job has been frustrating at best.
NFS is a no holds barred chain lube that will last for extended periods of riding and does a terrific job of lubricating the chain.

Basic instructions for use:
1. With your chain in the big ring and the smallest cog apply 8 to 10 drops of NFS at random and run the chain backwards to distribute the lube. A very good method is the 12:12:12 method. follow the instructions for chain position than add 12 random drops, rotate the chain 12 times than wipe it with a clean cotton cloth for 12 seconds.
2. The cogs will do the job of distributing the lube. Once all the lube has been distributed to the chain wipe any excess OFF the cog/chainring AND chain.

Ridiculous, buy use it write the same review. No need to ever buy any other chain lube
You guys rocked it!

I have been using NFS since its introduction on our family's five bikes. The bikes see all kind of conditions ranging from dry and dusty to wet and cold and the product holds up admirably well. It's almost too good to be true as a little really does go a long way compared to the previous product that I had been using...White Lightning. The chains are also easier to clean and I can attest to the fact that they are lasting longer with relatively little wear. I do use the product more frequently than suggested but I like to see a clean chain and I dislike hearing drivetrain noise. A win win for all.

My chain is cleaner and quieter with less effort. When I clean my bike I strip the chain with Morgan Blue chain cleaner then apply NFS from scratch. After a few rides I wipe the chain with a cloth and apply a few drops. Easy.

Stuff is made of magical unicorn tears i swear. The most quiet i have ever heard my drivetrain. Be it wet roads, dry and dusty gravel, 60km or 100km rides...this just works. And a 30 second wipedown of the chain post ride when i hang the bike up is all it needs.

Make no mistake about it, this is the one chain lube to use. 37 seasons on the road and I think I've tried everything and put this NFS chain product at the top.

This lube is simply the best. Everything you've read is true. 10-12 drops will give you a gunk-free, quiet chain for 200+ miles. I've given this as gifts & always hear back how great this product is. A little goes a long way...I'm still on my first bottle & I ride over 5000 miles a year in rainy Seattle.

By far the greatest lube I ever used !
There are quite a lot of high-performance lubrication systems out there, but most of them require a complicated application process.
By constrast, NFS Ultimate Lube offers great lubrication, and is very easy to apply.
Clean your chain, apply a few drops, turn the cranks, wipe off the excess. And off you go.

using NFS smooths the ride, stays clean and doesnt need frequent application.
win win win

Bought this for my cx bike and I have been riding in wet pavement and on ice and snow down to zero degrees in Northern Illinois. Ridden in some slop but not tons of mud. Staying clean. So put it on my road machine which I use on the trainer inside. Super quiet and smooth as compared to Rock N Roll. So I put on my gravel rig and will use it with my mountain bike. Weird to think I found an all season chain lube for different disciplines. The real test may come at a gravel metric I do at the end of February in Iowa. If it performs like it has so far we will have to change the rating scale, ha ha!

NFS works as advertised. So easy to use.

Lasts 150 miles or more, while only needing 6 drops per application. You can ride with it till you start hearing chain noise. Less lube used means a cleaner chain too.

Saw the initial launch of NFS over on V Salon. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical. I had been using Rock N Roll and T9 for quite a few years. They're good lubes but reapplication gets tedious and if it is wet you'll get one heck of a squeaky chain. With NFS apply 12 drops (drops mind you!) and pedal backwards, wipe excess and you're good to go rain or shine for 2-300 miles without reapplication. Pretty killer. Also NFS keeps the chain amazingly clean. While you can get cheaper stuff/more well known you'd be making a mistake. Buy NFS and spread the word about THE Chain Lube to use.

I was replacing chains every 1000 mi or risking freewheel replacement with every chain. With NFS I go to 2000 mi and get several chains changes per freewheel. And I love having a clean drivetrain all the time. A bottle seems to last forever.

Could tell the difference the first time I put this product on my chain. Everything got smother and slicker.

I tried NixFrixShun about a year ago after hearing about it from my cycling buddies (commuters and racers) in and around the DC area. As a bike enthusiast I'd been using Tri-Flow since I my BMX days in elementary school but I've now switched to NFS exclusively.

After 41 years of cycling this is the best chain lube I've ever used. Long lasting, doesn't wash off easily in rain and leaves the chain quiet, eerily quiet. Never used a lube that made the drivetrain so quiet. Great stuff.

You cannot get an easier drive train regimen then applying a few drops of NFS and wiping down the chain. My short term review is that it has helped quiet my drive train and make for smoother shifting. In the damp spring here in Buffalo, NY, NFS has been working great for me. Glad to have found a great product in this lube. Like others have noted, the guys making and promoting this product are good people. Thanks Josh!

Great lube that seems to run forever here in dry, dusty Colorado. The oil distributes itself very well, which is surprising given its viscosity. Yes, wiping the chain down is somewhat annoying, but depending on the conditions, you could probably get away with every few rides (hey, I'm a busy guy). This is my second order, the first of which lasted more than a year before a household move when my bottle misplaced itself. Overall great stuff, and even better customer service from NFS.

Been using NFS for about a year and a half...two bottle's worth. Works great, stays on, lasts forever. Coming off Triflow, this is a world of improvement. Thx Josh!

I followed the instructions on the website and used 8 drops for my tourer and 6 drops for my track bike. After a few rides on both I was convinced I'd never buy another brand of chain lube again.
I'm also a sucker for puns so 5 stars all around.

Impressive lube. Only need about 10-15 drops for the chain with a wipe afterwards. My drivetrain has never been so smooth and quiet while staying clean. Looking forward to logging some miles on the roads and trails near Boston this winter...
Bruce (Submitted on Dec 10th 2014)
Developed by some pretty demanding cycling gurus, this stuff lives up to the hype. A few drops on the chain and all you have to do after that is wipe it down after every ride. Great stuff!

Super smooth and a little goes a very long way. Get some.
