Bicycle Chain Lubricating Shoe

  [vote for,

The chain lubricating shoe is a cycling shoe (for the right foot only) with a reservoir of chain lubricant concealed in the toe. When you curl your toes, lube squirts out. Next time you’re riding and you suddenly get that dry-chain feeling, just take your foot off the pedal, hold it over the chain, and curl your toes while pedaling with the other foot. Instantly and on-the-fly your chain goes from not-so-fresh to silky smooth.

       The Scottoiler company seems a little more hassle-free way. See second link.

       //suddenly get that dry chain feeling//   

       I've ridden many a mile, and I don't think I've ever noticed that dry chain feeling come up suddenly.   

       Would you have to keep cranking with your left foot as you applied the oil?

       I usually get the dry-chain feeling after it rains, since the PTFE-based lubricant that I use tends to wash off after a good drenching. You would have to keep cranking with your left foot in order to get the stuff applied to the whole chain (easy if you have toe clips or clipless pedals, more difficult but possible if you don’t.)

       What if I get that dry-joint feeling from curling my toes?
