is a new attempt at an old idea: using a a primer bulb to dispense some oil on the moving chain. Oilin'About is our own version of this concept, which we built because we had a need ourselves. Shipping cost and the cost for the custom part made it more economical to make more than one kit. So here we are.
How much oil does the reservoir take? The bottle contains up to 100ml of oil, which is about 100 full presses of the oiler bulb.
How often would I need to press the oiler bulb? If the consumption of other chain oiler systems is anything to go by, pressing the oiler bulb and releasing it slowly once about every 250km should do the trick.
Why would I buy this from you? I can make my own. Absolutely. The benefit you get from buying this kit is that you don't have to run after the parts and don't have to think about how to mount the slightly awkward-to-fix primer bulb. Additionally, if you consider the shipping cost for all the individual parts - or the effort for getting them - you will likely be cheaper of buying this one (law of scale).
How do I mount this thing on my bike?
We have prepared a series of videos that show how to install the cain oiler.
If videos aren't your thing, or you'd like something to print and take with out, check out the manual for more details.
What is included in the kit? In the kit you'll receive everything you need to set up this chain oiler. All you need to mount it is an allen key, and some oil to use. The parts included are:
