- Rock n Roll Extreme Lube – UK stock?
Spoke to the importer at the cycle show today. There was a 1 month delay as the labelling was being changed (now non flammable) then disaster hit in Houston with the recent storms and flooding. There are 2000 bottles of extreme lube in Houston port that are paid for by the uk distributor, but are stuck until the storm devestation clears up enough to get the stock to the uk. There was genuinely 1 bottle on the stand for display only, and not for sale! Sounds like it’ll be here in a few months……Posted 5 months agovincienupSubscriber
I find the White Lightning Epic Ride (the green one) a good all round all weather performer. The purple stuff is better when it’s seriously damp and mucky.
Agree with jsync on the MucOff. I ran the C3 wet for a winter with my normal chain care routine and the filth at the end was unbelievable. The very dirtiest chain lube I’ve ever used, and if it’s that dirty it more or less has to be picking up grit which isn’t good in the Peaks.Posted 5 months agoonedpeteMember
FYI, I’m a postie and surcharges are not decided by us. The cards are dished out by the office for delivery by us. Sometimes the parcel will come through the system without being surcharged, if that happens it’s rare that we will point it out to management and will just deliver to the customer coz we are awesome like that!Posted 5 months agoonedpeteMember
I’ve got a bottle of rnr extreme I picked up last year that should see me through this season , but I can’t remember where I bought it now, somewhere online uk shop….through the drier month, I have been using scottoiler UBS and rate it highly. It doesn’t last as wel as some, especially in the wet, but I usually take a small 2.5 oz bottle of it in my pack on longer or damper rides n top up if needed. The best bit about it is its water based so a bit of overspray on discs isn’t a problem and also, a simple rinse with a garden hose and the drivechain is spotless!! Seriously the cleanest running lube I’ve used.Posted 5 months agowhatyadoinsuckaMember
Got 4 bottles from RIbble the start of this year, as others have said it felt watered down to previous bottles,
RIbble are oos but have the dry and the gold in 4oz and 16oz
And totally agree about mucoff I stripped a bike to fit onto a different frame and the drivetrain was black, it took me two hours with half a can of bubblegum scented degreaser and a bucket of hot water to clean itPosted 5 months ago
Then another hour to clean the bucketOscillate WildlyMember
stopped using it after about what seems 10 years on the stuff (especially in winter!), found the last few big bottles I had in the uk (recent) were very watery indeed, even more wasteful than usual and didn’t seem to last anywhere near as long on a wintery wet day (6 months of the year)
I emailed the US to see if it was normal (which obvsiouly it wasn’t in my eyes given ive used it so long), and the guy at the other end was a complete and utter absolute bellend, will never buy it again, the most arrogant, condescending piss kidney ive ever had the displeasure of speaking to
I’m now just on muc off wet lube, at 4 quid, it lasts, it keeps working, and if you use your brain when applying it, it is no dirtier/filthier than anything else at allPosted 5 months agoScienceofficerMember
I never thought much of RnR extreme. Wasteful application, messy, expensive, not that good in the filth, and not that easy to clean off for a decent re-lube.
I’ve tried loads of lubes of the years. And settled on three chains in rotation with a full degrease and soak.
I’ve done away with all that now, by using Wickens and Soderstrom. Don’t bother with the expensive no.5. but try no.3 brilliant stuff.
It’s the first lube Ive ever used that has measurably extended the wear life of my chains, and thus transmission.Posted 4 months agohodgyndMember
I’ve used all sorts over the last twenty years ..by far the best though is this ..Posted 4 months ago
Not actually bike specific which may put some of you off ..but it sheds mud & water better than anything I have previously used and has a multitude of uses ..
Those of you brave enough can thank me later ..
