It's always better with lube!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Put some here, put some there, put some everywhere! Great as assembly lube, thread lube, axle lube, you name it, it will probably lube it. Obviously not recommended for chains, but before you gunk it up with dirt - it will lube it!

Does the Park Tool PolyLube 1000 tube have a 9/16" thread that is compatible with a grease gun? (I.E. Finish Line or Pedro's)


Great to Have

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Small tube to keep in your toolbox. Perfect for bolt threads and any loose ball bearings you have on your bike.


Lube It Up!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Before I got schooled on the Poly 1000, I was using various automotive greases I had around the garage for all my thread needs and whatnot.

Well after doing some late night researching, many things pointed me towards the Poly 1000; something that is actually made specifically for bikes. From pedal spindles and BB cups, even to fussy no-go seatposts, this stuff rocks and gets it done!

The tube size version of this stuff lasts a looong time, and if you happen to stumble upon the "tub" version, well, that'll last you a lifetime.


Lots of lube for little price

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

4 ounces is more than I thought. Plenty of lube for the price and I'm sure it will last a very long time. It's a thick, dark blue grease. Just cut the nozzle tip with some scissors and squeeze. I've used it to install my pedals and practically anything with bolts to prevent them from seizing in the future should I ever need to remove or adjust them. Please note that these aren't for your chain. You'll want a chain lube for that.


A Little Goes A Long Way

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

A little goes a long way. Used on pedal installs and any bolts I have. The size of this tube is going to last forever.


Essential tool for any home mechanic

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

In addition to having wrenched in shops, I like to keep a decent set of tools at home. My third purchase after a good set of allen wrenches and some chain lube was Park Tool Polylube. The one 4 oz. tube has lasted upwards of 4 years of prepping bolts, rebuilding loose ball hubs, and and old headsets. There are higher end greases out there for specific jobs, but as a do-it-all grease for the shop, it is a great thing to have on hand. It is grease, so don't do any wrenching in clothes that you plan to meet the significant other's parents, because it won't wash out easy.


Great Grease

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

If you are like me, you are tired of putting bacon grease on your bike because it makes you too hungry when you ride. This grease is great. It does exactly what bacon grease cannot, it doesn't make you want to eat it. I put it on my seat post and thru axles and then wipe it off with a rag. It last for a long time and definitely does the job!


Polylube 1000 grease

    A durable, waterproof grease for all your needs. Great for hub bearings, headsets or even loose bearing pedals.


    Staple for home mechanics

      Unless you take your bike into the shop for all maintenance and repair you'll need a bottle of this on hand. Much cleaner and easier to use than a giant tub of hardware store grease and the Polyurea formula is better for my bike.


      A must have!

        If you are building, repairing, maintaining any bike, you need to have this stuff. It makes everything go together well and stay together without destroying components in high stress environments. A 4 oz tube looks like it'll last me years and the applicator tip is clean and doenst leave a goopy mess.


        Solid Lubricant

          Park Tool Poly Lube is a great replacement for standard grease. Park Tool made this specifically with Bikes in mind and it's exactly what you would expect from Park Tool.
