Introducing the VonBuckinator


An Automatic Bike Chain Cleaner

The VonBuckinator™ cleans and lubricates your bike chain using state-of-the-art technology. The best part is that cyclists can deep clean and hot wax their chains without removing them from the bike!


A Revolutionary Chain Cleaner and Waxer


Riders place their bike into the machine and the chain is captured by the VonBuckinator. The chain is drawn through a series of strategically placed nozzles, spraying an ecofriendly cleaning fluid at high pressure. The fluid is captured, filtered multiple times and recycled again and again, reducing environmental impact. After the chain is cleaned, it is automatically dried and the lubrication is applied. Traditional liquid lubricants can be applied but with the touch of a button the VonBuckinator can heat the chain and apply an actual hard wax lubricant, like our Slippery John’s High Performance Chain Gravy.

This patented process is unique and offers the rider the advantage of a cleaned and waxed chain without the hassle of removing the chain and all done quickly in a matter of a few minutes.

The VonBuckinator ensures that cleaning and waxing are done quickly and correctly every time.

Treating Your Chain with the VonBuckinator

Chain cleaning and waxing are often frustrating, messy, and even dangerous, but are required for performance. This process can take hours, even for experienced cyclists.


Why Clean with the VonBuckinator?

  • Achieve a deep clean without removal of the chain
  • Obtain a thoroughly clean chain without the mess
  • Deep clean a chain in a matter of minutes
  • Use an eco-friendly cleaning solution that is filtered and recycled
  • Automatically applies a wet lubricant or revolutionary hot wax


Automatic Chain Waxing with Von Buck’s Lubricants

The average bike chain has over 400 moving parts and requires regular lubrication to decrease pedaling effort, properly shift gears, and reduce wear. Bicycle chains are subjected to thousands of pounds of pressure where each pin and bushing meet. Lubricant is quickly pushed out of these tiny areas, metal rubs on metal, and the chain eventually wears down, elongating and sitting incorrectly in the gears. Riding with a dirty and or worn chain will quickly wear out expensive chainrings and gear clusters.
Frequent chain lubrication is necessary to keep your bike in prime condition. When riding, wax-based lubricants melt and flow back to these critical areas. Hot waxing a chain creates a thick coating of wax that acts as a reserve, decreasing the frequency of applications. Unlike liquid lubricants, a waxed chain does not attract road grit, further reducing wear.
To maximize performance and prevent hundreds of dollars in maintenance, you’ll need the best lubricant available. Thankfully, Von Buck’s lubricant options are just as revolutionary as the VonBuckinator itself:

  • Slipper John’s High Performance Chain Gravy
  • Blue Whahoo High Performance Chain Wax
  • Boeshield T-9



  • Utilizes hard wax that coats the entire chain
  • Doesn’t hold dirt or grit
  • Flows back into the pin and bushing interface when heated
  • Results in less chain wear and reduced wear of the gear cluster and chain ring
  • All natural Slippery John’s or High Performance Synthetic Blue Whahoo Wax
  • Long lasting lubrication and protection


Things Are Heating Up with the Vonbuckinator 

Not every cyclist has experienced how wax can benefit their bike chain. Waxing a chain has been time consuming and difficult up until now. A waxed chain can be more efficient and stay cleaner for much longer than when typical bike chain lubes are used. 

The VonBuckinator not only cleans your chain but can apply a hot wax coating in a matter of minutes without removing it from the bike. The VonBuckinator utilizes induction heat that warms the chain from the inside out. Infrared sensors constantly monitor the temperature and trigger the automatic application of Slippery John’s Chain Gravy. Slippery John’s non-paraffin wax penetrates as the chain heats, turns, and flexes–delivering a chain that performs. Check out the video below to see how we achieve a perfectly-waxed chain every single time.
