No-Drip Chain Luber Bottle Aims to Ease Chain Lubrication

Interbike is both an exhibition of current established brands looking to show off their latest years worth of products, and also a proving ground for upstarts looking to shoehorn their way into the bicycle market. One of those upstarts is Left Field Designs who were showing off their No-Drip Chain Luber.

The concept is fairly simple, you flip open the Luber, place on the chain, and squeeze the bottle while pedaling the chain past the Luber. Low viscosity chain lubricants will flow into the applicator sponge which then coats the chain. In addition to chain lube, No-drip can also be used for degreaser. The No-Drip Chain Luber is only the bottle and tool itself, it is not affiliated with any lubricant yet. The kit comes with 5 replaceable sponge inserts which will last about 20 lubrication each, with the ability to slightly extend that by flipping the sponge on the applicator. Also included is a travel cap that will keep the bottle from leaking in the reusable packaging.

Left Hand Designs will be launching a sales/funding campaign on Indiegogo on September 19th, through November 2nd to kick things off. Check back soon for the link, in the mean time, check out their video after the break of the No-Drip Chain Luber after the break.

 

The No-Drip Chain Luber will retail for $9.95 which includes the bottle, luber, travel cap, and 5 foam inserts. Additional inserts will be available in 12 packs for $4.95.

Solution in search of a problem.

And why does he lube from the outside?

Haha, Mindless you stole my thoughts exactly!
I can understand this being an easy way for the the non-technically-minded to feel comfortable lubing their own chain though.

Neat idea. Found it hilarious that the video started with him turning to the camera and going “oh..hi”

So how is it they found a bicycle with the drivetrain on the left hand side?.

Patrick - 09/18/12 - 9:18am

And also to find one with a cable stop on the top of the chainstay? And a downtube and bottle cage below the bottom bracket?

Strangely enough, it’s much easier to flip a bike upside down.

I ain’t afraid of no drip.

“Strangely enough, it’s much easier to flip a bike upside down.”

Some hydraulic disc brake manufacturers recommend not turning bikes upside down so as to prevent air bubbles from moving towards the calipers.

What I would like is a device that lubes the chain between the link plates where the friction is, not everywhere. I can do everywhere with my existing bottle of lube and an old t-shirt.

Who does 2 drops per each side of the link? I don’t even do a full drop. I just let decent sized bead form and touch it to each roller.
