Update by Ray of Sunshine:
as at June 3, 2022.
Bike shop has my bike for a pre big trip service. They commented that my chain was only .25% (I knew that) and in good condition, the cassette is good and the front chainrings (both) were good.
so 7,000km on the Chain, the Cassette is about 8,000 km now and the front chainrings are about 20,000+ old. Not looking at replacing anything any time soon.
I am begining to think that 300km between wax is mostly too short.
I obtained some liquid wax and ptfe to put on the chain on my trip, which I expect will be about 1000-1500 km. This should test the credentials of the liquid wax. the trip[ distance depends on my better half and when she wishes to join me (‘join me’ is code for stop me riding).
