    Favorite lube
    Not trying to start a pissing match here, but what is everybody's favorite lube? I assume everybody has a personal favorite; perhaps an old standby that has never let them down.

    Olive oil works great, but can stain. Usually I just use spit. Used to use Astroglide, but not anymore... and never use the warming kind. That ish will set your junk ablaze. :D

    Lube for what? For example, for chain lubes it largely depends on your riding conditions. Do you ride in dry, dusty conditions or wet, muddy ones? It's like asking what type of tires you use. It's meaningless unless you know more information.

    Seems as if astroglide is the main preference around here!

    Jk. I would like to know the answer as well. I have been debating on using some chain lube I use on my MX bike but its super tacky so I'm not thinkin it's a good idea

    I've gone back and forth between thin lubes like White Lightning and thicker ones like Dumond Tech. I've settled on the latter, applied lightly and to each link junction, rather than just squirted on a moving chain, and then wiped as clean as I can get it. Works well for me.

    O.k. I want to change my answer. The best is milk induced flem (not the green stuff)

    grease for bearings: I use the stuff chainsaw dealers sell for bar tips and needle bearings. I think the formulation is very similar to the sticky bike lubes, but half the cost.

    Oils: industrial chain lubes. Contains Molybdenum Sulfide. They're all the same.
    Shimano hub oil (grit your teeth and apply personal lube).

    Frog Lube.
    Or Slip2000 EWL 30 if I'm lazy and don't want to remove the chain.

    I've been using a new lube called "Chain Brew" since Summer... it's been working great in dry and wet conditions. And it smells like root beer :thumbsup:

    There's a lot of chain talk in here. Are you all saying that you are in to s and m?

    Totally condition and application dependent. When I lived in the NE, I used finishline wet. It's works awesome and lasts for ever. I couldn't understand why people used the wax based lubes like white lightning. Then I moved to the desert. Wet lubes gunk up everything here so now its wax based lube.

    For other applications, water based is the best.

    uhuhuhuhuhh...you said lube.

    I ride in mainly dry conditions and use White Lightning..no complaints. Keeps chain v. clean, just doesn't last more than few rides is the only real downside. I have considered trying Dummonde.
