well I use S100 "Kettenspray" at least once every 1000km (of after heavy rain) and I'm doing some cleaning every time I ride through snow (salt), sand and mud. for cleaning I use some cheap diesel fuel. if you keep doing it every 200 miles your chain will last at least 45k kms .
Those mixed unit's are interesting.

200mi? am I supposed to stop during a ride?

to the OP...........opinions are like a$$holes, everybodies got one.

I clean my chain when I feel it needs it, I use belray chain lube every couple rides, or when it seems to be getting noisier.

I don't ride like some of the inmates, I only have about 14,000mi on mine, the tension usually only gets adjusted when I change tires.
