I just bought a 1998 Schwinn GSX Searcher; dark red color. It says "easy ride" on the back part of the frame. It's in mint condition with new tires. My first 'grown-up' bike. I had been riding a GT Robinson (bmx-style) bike until now. I love this bike! I've got bike fever right now; all I want to do is ride, but St. Louis weather is wet right now. :'(

The bike's been thoroughly cleaned and the chain is bone dry. Does anyone know the ideal lubricant to use? Is 3-in-1 oil okay or should I use something else?

cheers,
Mike

Welcome to the forums!

I suggest going to your local bike shop and getting some real bicycle chain lube. I like Rock-n-roll Wet Lube myself but whatever you can find should be fine.
