I know very little about bikes.
In fact, it's rather embarrassing. Seriously.
And while I am taking small strides to change this terrible dearth of basic knowledge, I consult folks around the Backcountry / Competitive Cyclist office in the meantime.
In asking our most knowledgeable, experienced and veteran bike nerd employees - 4 out of 4 agreed.
THIS IS THE BEST LUBE. THIS IS IT. THERE IS NOTHING ELSE.
I didn't even say anything...all 4 recommended it independently of each other.
What do I know about bike lube? Nothing.
But these strong recommendations were enough to convince me that this was the only option for lube.
My nO_Ob observations:
*It's a nice yellow color.
*The texture is viscous without being nasty - I kept hearing how the 'lite' part is sposto be really nifty. Sure. It's great. I think?
*I don't mind the smell - It's a weird combo of sweet, candy (smarties maybe?) with the acrid scent of a rubber tire. Interesting but not offensive.
* Pretty easy to clean up, though I have nothing else to compare it to....what do I know?
