So you just bought your first bag of wax and are trying to figure out how to get started? You've come to the right place, my friend.
We've spent countless hours scribing guides to help you fearlessly learn how to clean and wax your bicycle chains like an absolute pro.
CLEAN YOUR CHAIN
This is hands-down one of the most vital steps when you are converting your bicycle's drivetrain system to wax. Whether you're ready to clean a used chain, new chain, or re-waxing, we've prepared step-by-step instructions to guide you through the entire process.

for your chains? Don't worry, we've prepared a guide for you too, you little over achiever, you.
WAX YOUR CHAIN
The extensive cleaning process you completed in Step 1 should have left your chain sparkling clean and oil free, now it’s time to flood the hundreds of friction points with wax. This technique not only lubricates the hidden parts but prevents oxidation as well.
Similar to the Cleaning Your Chain section, we’ll provide more detail than you can shake a stick at, but keep in mind that waxing really is a simple process. We guarantee that after only a couple of chains you’ll toss the instructions and watch cycling videos instead.
APPLY RACE POWDER
It's simply amazing that a mixture of dry powder brushed onto a waxed chain can reduce friction so dramatically. Perhaps even more impressive is the longevity of the powder. In the lab there was no increase in friction after 70 minutes at 250 watts and we theorize the powder's effect could last significantly longer. The reason is simple: the powder works its way into the wax and stays put. Importantly, it doesn't attract dirt after bonding.
