Thanks, Don. I wasn't aware of how close Victory was to Triomphe. I think much of the bike (brake levers, for sure) is Triomphe. I will do more research and revise. Thanks for pointing this out. Dan.

As a road rider, I clean the bike every three rides or so. Unless it is wet -- then I clean it after the ride. I use a dry lube and unless it rains I clean the chain once a week.

In sixty years of riding -- including a marathon from London to Rome -- I have never needed one. So, I don't carry one, even on long tours.

Chain drives with derailleurs are a beautifully evolved design. Yes, they need to be cleaned and maintained, but so does the rest of the bike. I happen to enjoy the maintenance part, though I know...
