- General Purpose Grease
I know this has been done before and it’s a boring question, so apologises 😳
I’ve had a Dualco grease gun since last Christmas and I’ve decided it’s time to fill it up as I’ve got some bits to do that are going to require grease, striping down Hope Pro Hub for instance. Plus the current cheapie Bike Hut stuff has just about ran out.
Don’t think I need bearing grease as everything I own uses cartridge bearings. I was going to get some of the Mobil XHP that Hope use but that’s as rare as rocking horse shit.
So what’s the forums current favourite?Posted 4 years agocookeaaSubscriber
I just use a cheap 500g tub of “Marine Grease” I got a while ago for general duties…
I did want a grease gun for a while, but then realised that a calpol dosing syringe is an ideal delivery tool, its essentially free, much easier to get into tricky spaced, easy to load, and 5ml is actually quite a lot of grease for most jobs…Posted 4 years agohatterSubscriber
White lightning crystal grease in my Dualco here, like the fact you can easily see when it’s contaminated and it’s tested as safe on carbon.
£20 was a lot for a tub but it’s lasted 2 years so far and is still more than 3/4 full so roughly £3 a year seems reasonable value.
Very good at silencing creaky Shimano pedals as well.Posted 4 years ago
