-Shimano Premium Grease(Dura Ace)
-Campagnolo LB-100 Grease
-Morgan Blue Competition Campa Grease
-Finish Line Ceramic Grease
Have all of them at home and I am just fiddling around whitch one would be the best?
Or in the end, it would make no difference which one do you use?
Next, Shimano. With that cool green colour, it really works well, also.
I've also experimented with some heavy marine greases for applications that were just water barriers and didn't need much lubrication.
IMO Phil Wood was the best because it seems slightly lower viscosity and more lubricative, yet stays in place really well. I have taken apart bottom brackets and headsets that haven't been apart for 5+ years and the PW grease still seems just like new.
The ultimate thing seems to be put PW IN the bearings, but put a light layer of heavy marine grease over the top of everything as a water barrier.
Not that I'd know which one to pick anyway... I imagine all these are good in some fashion.
I don't want to forget about them. I need something good, low resistance with my decently lightweight wheelset(1.180g)
I am use to opening the hubs every 2-3.000 km and lubing Cermaic Bearings in my old Bora TWO.
So opening this wheelst every, let say 5.000km, is no problem.
On this new wheelset with only 1k km I tride Shimano Premium. So far is OK, only a little bit sticky.
When I opened the front hub, left bearing was almost dry.
I've often heard that it is good to open a new hub and check if bearings are properly greased?
Its not a bad idea, a few manufacturers (both cycle equipment and bearing) put as little grease in as they can get away with!tomyboy2 wrote:I've often heard that it is good to open a new hub and check if bearings are properly greased?
