storing chain w/o rusting?

Recommended Posts

Dumb question I know, but I've wasted a couple chains and its getting expensive. I keep a couple different length DID x-ring chains for my mx & offroad gearing. Within a few weeks the chain thats off the bike gets rusted and unusable. I spray it with wd40 before storing it in the garage cabinet but that hasn't seemed to work. What's the best way to store a chain and keep it from drying out and rusting? 😢

After i wash my bikes i throw em on the stand and dry the chain with a rag. They have sat for months with out rusting more than just a little. Results have been the same with all the chains i have used.

Do you keep pool chlorine in your garage? Even in a closed container, it will rust EVERY piece of metal in the garage. Put it outside. The only other way you could have severe rusting is if you live right on the beach and have salt air.
