    Word up STW Dudes.

    Just after some recommendations for the best grease for headsets. I've used some general stuff from Finishline but wasn't impressed, I think I need something thicker.

    Advice?

    Motorex is very thick and sticky 🙂

    Have been putting some shell lithium grease on my current project.
    Mainly cause I have got a bloody great can of it and use very little at a time, nice and thick though

    Thanks. The current stuff I use (which was recommended by my LBS) just seems to disintergrate after a short time.

    progold grease is the best i have used and its red, so it must be faster than most greases

    most moto/marine grease are a bit thick for bike use (in my opinion)

    Horses for courses here though, thick type moto/marine grease might be just the thing for a headset or suspension pivots that see about 45deg of ("slow") movement, but defo something lighter for BB or esp. wheel bearings. Agree that bike specific stuff, that white goop, is shite.

    My Fave is the MoS2 grease that comes in the packets/sachets with GKN CV boot/joint kits. It's not particularly thick, but very persistant, filthy even.

    I bought a grease gun sized tube of Lucas Red 'n' Tacky off the bay for about a fiver. Seems pretty good so far.
