Wheel Jockey makes chain lubing easy

Dailies -

wheel_jockey.jpgLooking for an easy way to lube your chain on the go? The Wheel Jockey is small enough to fit under most seats and strong enough to support bikes up to 750lbs. Essentially just a set of rollers mounted in a steel frame with a non-slip base, the Wheel Jockey isn’t going to replace a paddock stand in your garage, but will make basic lubing much easier when you’re a long way from home. It’s only designed to work with road tires, no knobblies.

    “For use on road motorcycles only; not for off-road tires”
    they need to make a separate model/rollers for off road tires i bet a lot of off road adventure people are going to jump on this in a hurry
    other than that..briliant especially for touring or people who live in urban areas and are short on space

    If they give me one for free, I’ll get rid of those awful chicken strips for them.

    If they give me one for free, I’ll show the guy how to work on those 2 virgin centimeters on the rear.

    Neat idea but…

    You can buy something much cheaper that does the same thing at Harbor freight.

  • Sean Jordan

    Yeah right. Like anyone actually lubes their chains.

    uhh $54?? yeah, think i’ll stick to the “hassle” of moving my bike a few feet.

    I bought and use something similar (and cheaper) from Harbor Freight in town. It’s cheap, it works well and makes the horrible chore of cleaning/lubing my chain almost tolerable.

    Sells for $30, but if you’re familiar with Harbor Freight you just wait 24 hours for a 10-15$ off coupon to land in your inbox.

    If only they had a belt drive conversion kit for $15 for my bike.

    Thanks Broke -I knew there had to be an HF version for much cheaper. $54 for this product is a bit steep for a piece of steel bent in a C and a couple of metal rollers with some skateboard bearings inside.

    The HF version looks nicer and easier to use -as well as being half the price (regular HF price even, you know this goes on sale every few weeks for $9.99 -or you can use a coupon like you said).

    We are now dipping into the next Great Depression. These people are going to need to realize if they want to sell something they are not going to be able to price it this high. In a world where you can buy a 750Gb hard drive for $54 a bit of bent steel, a couple metal rollers, and some bearings might not be able to pull in that same price…

    While I too would probably opt for the HF version, this one looks like it’s significantly smaller. That could be advantageous if you’re taking a long trip and need to bring it with you.

    Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch because I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!
