    Best Grease for VPP Bearings?

    I just picked up a Carbine 650B. I want to get into a good grease routine using the Zerk Fittings. I was wondering what some people are using.

    I used to own a Tracer and was using a heavier grease for Moto X bearings that was suggested to me, it worked great but im open to suggestions.

    Thanks in advance.

    Chris.

    There was a thread a long time ago that Jeff Steber chimed in on. He said that they use Boat Trailer hub grease. Its more water resistant. I got some locally at a boat marina but I would imagine that many auto parts stores would have it as well. You can buy it in tubes that fit in the grease gun that comes with the frame.

    Marine trailer bearing grease works well in the lower pivots to resist water, but this is what we've been using lately and it is working great: Waterproof Grease - $8.95 : Maxima Racing USA, - Power Without Sacrifice.
