I just cleaned my gears and chain with a biodegradable degreaser. I'm going to lubricate my chain. Do I also need to lubricate the gears or do I just pedal and make sure that I hit all gears? Will the lube on the chain lube the gears?
I always wash off the degreaser, lube the chain, and then run it through all gears to get a bit of lube worked into everything. Don't need to lube the gears specifically.
I think the key is to be sure to wash off all traces of the degreaser. Last thing you need is residual cleaner gunking stuff up.
