So, like every 1k of street, a little more often if offroad, and if I ride through heavy rain. The process I have been using for this is simply just wiping it off with a cloth (which is very easy and far less mess than an oil) and then spraying it down again.

They dont use salt on our roads here, so I see very little rust on the chain, though my trip to Idaho last weekend, riding in the rain on Teton Pass, chain and sprockets got pretty rusty.... I must not have had much wax on it....

For what its worth.....
