    2014 Reba RL stanchion lube?

    got a new 2014 bike with a Reba fork and although the 2014 manual does not mention stanchion lube (other than soaking the sponges prior to reassmbly), I am sure I read that you can improve fork performance with a "treatment". Has anyone used the Finish Line stanchion lube? They state it will not harm wipers/seals...can't get a good answer re oil contamination though.

    It's a lube. Probably good for the seals. I use silicone spray on my Manitou and on my Marzocchi because that's what Marz recommends. Figure it will be good for the Manitou too. If someone gave me a bottle of Finish Line stanchion lube, I'd happily use that as well.

    I've used the finish line stanchion lube and it works well. It is very "frictionless" and very slick, so it helps shed some dirt as well as keeping everything working smoothly. I can't say it's anything noticeable while riding, but definitely in the shop pushing down on the fork you can notice it being smoother.
