Looks interesting. I'm a late adopter on just about everything so I probably will not.
Seems like a solution that adds unnecessary complication to the bike. I only lube every few weeks.

And been kicking round since the 90s (possibly even the 80s)

Maybe it'll work this time.

12w? Hmmmmmm. Didn't think a properly maintained chain drive even had that level of loss. Unless the coated it in rust first.

Must be a more elegant solution possible. Too ugly for me.

adding more weight. some issues of lube dripping on wheel. probably not good if you use your rear rim brakes. i'd rather run my chain dry than risk not having brakes going down a steep descent.

I don't get it. They show dirt on a chain as an example of decreasing its lifetime. But isn't a chain that was not wiped after lubing exactly the case how dirt sticks on it easily?
Of course the lube will spray around when riding, since that's what a chain that was not wiped after lubing does, and that's why we learnt to wipe the chain after lubing.

How to solve it? Ride disc brakes, so you don't care about chain lube sprayed over the rim. Money, money, money.
And of course, you need some "special" oil for this device to work properly, I understand - money again.

The biggest problem I have is that I'm not convinced I need it. If I can noticeably feel that riding gets harder during the course of a ride, then I'll buy this. But I don't, so I won't.

I call that a solution in search of a problem.

No way... it takes a few minutes to clean a chain, which I do after each ride. I agree with AJS914, it's a solution in search of a problem.

If I was running a bicycle rental program, and it also had a self-degreasing function

That dude in jeans in the last photo will get a hell of an advantage of his lubed chain. Might get some dirty leg also.

I saw someone was running this at TDU?

Integrate it in the front derailleur. Then it'd be almost unnoticeable and more riders might take a punt on it if you market it enough.

You guys know about this, right?

Orica-BikeExchange will use Flaer Revo Via automatic chain lubing device in 2017

Yes.

I suspect we'll only see it in the muddy classics.

If we throw enough money at people, they'll will do almost anything.
