Dumonde Tech Bio Green Bicycle Chain Lube $19.20
Every time you use Bio Green lube, an eco-angel gets its wings.
While we don't know about Gs one through nine, we can tell you that Dumonde Tech's G-10 Lubricant is something special. It is 100% biodegradable. By this, Dumonde doesn't mean that 51% of the lube is biodegradable, which often is enough for people to make a claim about their product. They mean 100%. That means the lube, the carrier, everything. There are no petroleum products in this lube. Only plant products. Bio-lube if you will.
We can't say whether or not using G-10 will save the world. We can tell you that it is a step in the right direction. Lube comes off chains, get onto roads, trails, and eventually, can make it into the water table. We don't see any benefit to that.
G-10 works like any other lube, albeit one with a nice citrus smell. Start with a clean chain. Dribble on the lube. Wipe off. Wipe again. Go. If it performs at all like other Dumonde lubes, it might even perform better after one or two bike washings. Because it is biodegradable, it might not last quite as long as Dumonde's Original and Lite lubes, but we found those lubes to be pretty long lasting.
The Dumonde Tech G-10 lubricant comes in a recyclable drip bottle. The lube is colored green. The bottle size is two ounces (2oz.).
What community has to say
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I jumped on the "green-ness" of this chain lube and I have to say that it is the only thing good about it.
Buy some synthetic Tech Lite instead, this lube does not spread well or last long, plus it gums up my chain twice as fast as a synthetic.
Does The Trick
This stuff does the trick if you're looking for a basic Chain Lube. Plus who doesn't want to be a green when using this stuff?
Biodegradable--nice idea but what are the...
Biodegradable--nice idea but what are the advantages? Does it rot like veggies or get rancid like veggie oil? Does it last? Does it work in rainy, humid weather? Does it keep debris from building up on the chain? Does it build up on the chain?
It does Not turn rancid. It Does last in rain, humidity. By not following the direction, it may build up, but who's fault would that be. Dumonde G10 is way better then all the other 'bio' lubes. They are all dirty and performance sucks.
