I live in San Diego, which is semi-desert, and my chain gets rusty if I don't lube it. It gets clickety if I don't lube it. It wears out the sprocket if I don't lube it. It simply is not true, in my experience, that simply because chains have o-rings that you don't need to lube the chain. There's far more to a chain-sprocket interface than just in those inner chain bearing surfaces.

LD riders with chain drive bikes like products like the Loobman or Scott Oiler, which dribble small amounts of oil on the chain as the bike runs. The Scott Oiler is more expensive but more precise and less messy. For long runs (anything over 750 miles) it can be a nice time-saver.

No -- it will be one of the last things I add. I have talked to a lot of other LD riders who swear by the Scott Oiler though, so that will be what I get later in the spring.
