your first time making a video, or your first time cleaning your chain?

video looks good. chain maintenance was also good. not sure that you need to remove the chain gaurd, but I guess it makes it a little easier.
also, the video showed you cleaning the front, and inside of the links, but not the back. you are cleaning the back right? just like when you brush your teeth, you gotta brush the back ones too.

Yeah I have to clean all around, going to buy a grunge brush for the next time I do it. I cleaned it the best I could, doesnt show all the time I spent cleaning it on the video.

First time doing the chain cleaning, 3rd time doing the video.

I removed the chain guard to make make filming a little easier.

Excellent video. I just cleaned my chain and used Kerosene and applied it with a paint brush. The only thing I can suggest is putting some carbored between the sprocket and rim and under the bike. This just makes clean up a whole lot easier.

Nice video editing and production. The audio was kinda cheesy, but hey you're cleaning a chain.
