"Chain Johnny"

Now, White Lightning’s cover protects both rides—the vehicle’s interior and the bicycle’s drivetrain! The new White Lightning Chain Johnny solves the problem of how to transport bikes without making a mess. 

The Chain Johnny: Transport Bicycles with No Damage, No Mess!

The Chain Johnny uses a rip-resistant, 2-ply rubber/nylon material which protects the inside of a car much better than old-school methods such as towels or rags. It is also water resistant to protect the drivetrain itself when transporting bicycles on vehicle-mounted bike racks or storing them in the garage during the winter. Apartment and college dorm dwellers are also using the Chain Johnny to shield their greasy chains when storing their bikes indoors.

The Chain Johnny’s unique drivetrain shape and VELCRO® closures make installation a no-brainer. Simply slip the Chain Johnny over the front gear, then the chain and finally the rear derailleur. Seal it all up using the Chain Johnny’s Velcro closures.

“The Chain Johnny was invented (patents pending) by David Bolch, former professional team soigneur to the Saturn, US Postal and Discovery Channel cycling teams,” said Hank Krause, president of White Lightning. Krause continued, “Dave is a true visionary. His long tenure in tour cycling gives him tremendous insight when it comes to understanding what cyclists need. He has been selling chain sleeves to professional cyclists and high-end shops for the past 3 years. With White Lightning’s global reach, we’re eager to bring the Chain Johnny to a worldwide audience.”

The White Lightning Story.

In 1994 Paul Maples, a retired research chemist, was determined to find a way to end the messy inconvenience and performance inefficiencies caused by the dirt, grease, and grime build up on his bicycle chain. He set out to develop the first and only chain lube that would “self clean”. Clean Ride™ is that product; the original White Lightning chain lube. Clean Ride has become world renown because it actually repels and sheds dirt and grime from the chain and other drivetrain components while you ride. It was, and is, so unique it has been awarded four patents.

Since then, White Lightning products have grown to become recognized globally as the brand that means “Clean Riding”. From Clean Ride to Epic Ride™ to Wet Ride™ – all White Lightning lubricants perform better and stay cleaner longer than those of the competition.

After taking over the company in 2000, Hank Krause and his team have continued to develop new products that stay true to the “Committed to Clean” philosophy of White Lightning. While continuing to add unique new products like Clean Streak™ and Crystal Grease™ to the bicycle care side of the company, White Lightning has developed a range of Performance Accessories for the bicycle, car, and home. Starting with the Johnny™ product line, White Lightning now offers innovative ways to safely and cleanly store and transport you bicycle and accessories. White Lightning is committed to producing a steady stream of innovative new products and product improvements.

Although White Lightning has grown to become the best selling bicycle lubricant in the USA and enjoys strong sales and popularity in over 25 countries, we remain a small and passionate company, focused on making each and every one of our products to very exacting standards. We hope you’ll try them out on your next ride – we know you’ll be impressed.
