If your'e using prolink (as you should!) and you use it correctly, you know it doesn't last long. This bulk size container is like have the price per volume as the smaller 4oz container. Do yourself a favor and buy this and have enough lube for years and years and half price.

I like ProLink because it acts as a decent cleaner and a great lubricant. It's a lower viscosity oil, so you'll have to apply it a bit more often than the thicker stuff. I usually apply this stuff about every 150-ish miles.
I believe that some people really overcomplicate the process of oiling a chain by using fancy chain cleaning tools, degreasers, extended soaks in oil and/or mineral spirit baths, etc. I'll share my personal technique below. I'm not claiming this is the best way to do it, but it's very easy and I get just as many miles out of my chains as I did back when I overcomplicated this process, if not more. I'm a full-blown cycler who puts on a good amount of miles annually, so I've gone through plenty of chains and have tried various techniques. Below is all I ever do anymore.
First, there's no need to use degreaser unless your chain is rusty. I'm in the camp that believes degreasers do more harm than good by allowing subtle debris to work its way deeper into the chain. Also, I believe that degreaser can flush deeply penetrated lube out, which can be hard to re-apply. ProLink does a good enough job cleaning and your chain will still look fairly shiny.
1. - Wipe chain vigorously with a dry rag (just hold the chain with a rag and pedal backwards).
2. - Apply a drop of lube on each roller.
3. - Wipe chain vigorously again.
4. - Re-apply a drop of lube on each roller, try to get it between the roller and the plates for better penetration.
5. - Let it sit for at least 30 minutes, while doing so pedal backwards on occasion to allow the lube to move around inside the chain.
6. - Wipe your chain vigorously again. You don't want the outside of your chain to be wet with oil, this will only gum up your drive-train by turning your chain into a dirt magnet (also if you don't wipe it enough then you'll get those dirty marks on your leg).
That's it. Keep it simple, the chain is a disposable part and I have noticed no added life by using degreasers and more involved cleaning/lubing techniques.
As a side note we own an indoor cycling studio we use ProLube on our indoor cycles too. They are chain driven and ProLube helps to keep the chain clean and smooth.
