PSA: Free Squirt chain lube
I just received mine along with a long letter explaining why it has taken so long…..
I had completely forgotten i had signed up for it so to receive it today was a really pleasant surprise.
Sounds like they have had a real hammering on another forum over the time taken for these to arrive which is a bit silly. If a company chooses to give their product away for free then I guess it’s up to them when they send it. Obviously it is better if sent straight away and looks better for them but I aint going to get my knickers in a twist over it.
Thanks for the sample, Squirt! 😀
Edit: oh and don’t ever ever type squirt into google when the image search option is clicked when you are at work. That took some explaining.Posted 4 years agoOnzadogSubscriber
Totally agree, it’s free so you can’t really complain. Having said that, I remember a similar offer from mucoff that never materialised.
Love the tiny bottle. I can refill it and take it away for weekend trips. Perfect.
Thanks in2dust. Certainly doesn’t deserve a lot of earache on some forum no one has ever heard of.Posted 4 years agovincienupSubscriber
I love squirt on my cross bike that also sees more road/bridle way than proper offroad. Done well over 200 miles on last application so far.Posted 4 years ago
Not so sure about it on a mountain bike in the UK though.
Based on back to back applications on mine and my mates bikes : brand new drivetrain on mine and used but scrubbed on his it seems to dislike traces of other lubes – mine was still sweet after the ride and he was disappointed with his.
Also, while using it on a MTB at eAster this year riding on the NY moors in the snow, my chain froze solid… Hence my MTB ‘s are on chain juice or purple extreme again but crosser on squirt…
Just my 2p. If there are still sample bottles going I’m in… 🙂alibongo001Subscriber
I cant remember if I asked for one in the initial thread, but seeing it earlier this week I went onto the site and requested one.
It came today, so either it took ages like everyone else or they are now in a position for a very quick turnaround.
In any case happy to try it and thanks to the makers for being generous!Posted 4 years agodibboidMember
Haha mine landed this morning and Mrs D was about to launch a “what have you been ordering” attack how happy I was that it was a free sample. I live to ride another day. The letter made me chuckle “So far no death threats to the family” 😀 although my letter isn’t on the official letter head like the one pictured above. So I guess they resorted to photocopies because of the demand.
Thanks op I’ll put it in my cupboard and see if I remember next summer.Posted 4 years agotonydMember
Mine just arrived. You’ve got to feel sorry for them – trying to give stuff away and getting that kind of hammering.
Incidentally it looks like this isn’t just dry lube, you just need to apply it and let it dry rather than squirt and go.
I’ll be giving it a try the next time I degrease, clean, and dry my chain. Of course it might well be spring by the time that happens!Posted 4 years agodeadkennySubscriber
Wondered what the weird lump in a jiffy bag that turned up today was when I didn’t remember ordering anything. Tiny sample bottle but I guess good for one or two applications.
Will try it out when I feel like doing a full degrease. My normal policy is to never do that as it flushes out the good stuff inside the chain, but will give it a go if that’s what they say is required.Posted 4 years ago
