    Best lube for Grip-shift internals???

    Installing all new grips on my XO 11 speed shifter, and would love to know what everyone is using for their grip-shift internals? As I understand it, Johnnysnot (sp??) is the preferred choice, but I don't have any. What do you fellow fatties use and have good luck with???

    I thought they discontinued that stuff, but I looked on ebay and sure enough you can still get it! whowuddathunkit

    I have used Shimano Special Grease once or twice, but only on the older 8/9 speed versions with good success.
    Silly bike things happening.
