Exciting! Which Grease?
This is what I usePosted 4 years ago
Just serviced & re-greased some Shimano Hubs
I used Lithium Grease, which according to the label says it’s suitable for use with bearings
My LBS tells me that I really should have used some thicker grease
The question is which one? (I stupidly didn’t ask the LBS what they recommended)Posted 4 years agoTuckerUKMember
It’s not a massively complex job for the lube, low revs, low load, pretty much any grease will do…but thick and waterproof are nice. Morris K99 for me (head bearings too).
Or you pay tons more for some grease that’s been died pink (or whatever) from a boutique bike company who don’t make lubes.Posted 4 years agoAmbroseMember
As vinylspin says- it’s grease ffs. It is usually automatically waterproof anyway. That is why you need soap/ detergent to wash it off your hands after you have used it.
In bearings the thicker the better I reckon. I’ve used oil from a tin of mackerel in extremis. It’s rubbish, get some good old castrol in there.Posted 4 years agoschnorSubscriber
