being new to biking, i would appreciate some advice as to how often the chain should be lubed. the bike only gets used in dry weather and i currently use spray wax ( which i dont perticulary rate anyway )

i also use chain wax on the metric and have been pleased with the results :wink:

clean the chain every 800 miles or so with WD-40 while the chain is warm, it'll look brand new again and then spray a fresh layer of chain wax on. I usually do my chain every 400 miles with the wax, and clean it every other wax. That keeps the old wax buildup off and fresh stuff on.
