Squirt Bottles, Tubes and Queries


SO

...well, what women really prefer is variety in their lubes...a bit-o-White Lightning or Pedro's Ice goes a looong way over multiple

...er...

linkage

but now and again something with a bit more durability is required
especially for those moving parts of like materials
undergoing heavy

ummm

friction

....

...in which case, Phil Wood Tenacious Oil is a good choice.

And of course, there will be times when the Poly Lube 1000 needs to make an appearance, because after all it has an extremely high shear strength to protect vital parts under extreme conditions...

- OB THAT search query popped OB out at #6 on Google page 1!

I tend to do a three stage process

degreaser
bike specific or simple green

then
a synthedic lube
then
a wax lubricant

with a clean rag for proper cleaning and application of each stage

Shawn Kielty said...

Wow --- which "parts" are you putting these lubes on?

the old bag said...

Pilder -- send 'em on!

Gwadz -- clean rags...I forgot about clean rags....

Shawn -- :-]

Time for a cold shower.

WheelDancer said...

You're post is now #5 on the first Google page but oddly is the only one having anything to do with bicycles...

Pete said...

I love a woman who knows her lube...

A.R.B. said...

Is that how you keep yourself young, OB?

the old bag said...

KM -- ...hot in here....

Wheeldancer -- Odd...what else could one be referring to?? Thanks for stopping by!

Pete -- some day I'll write about...cogs....

ARB -- No, it's the riding that keeps me young.

Gwadzilla has a point. There's nothing like using a good lube after a thorough waxing.

Mmm. Smooooooth.

Shawn Kielty said...

Did I say which? or whose?

the old bag said...

Tim -- but to really do things properly everything should be stripped first, right?

Shawn -- well, lube can go on one's own or on someone else's parts, I'd say....
