We use Pedros ChainJ which is bio-degradeable, and inexpensive in the big bottle. For penetrating oil we use marvel mystery oil in a small squeeze bottle in stead of something like WD-40 in an aerosol. Aside from not using propellant a squeeze bottle wastes less by only dropping it where you want it, and not spraying it all around the shop and into the air.

Hello everybody...

Would you please share your thoughts concerning your choice in lubes you use.  Specifically:

1) Chain lube.  We use Prolink - expensive but good performance.  Would like a more "green" solution.

2) General oil-like lube, we use Triflow.  It's cheap.

For both, we buy bulk and refill the smaller bottles.

Could you please share your experiences and strategies?  Perhaps some sort of automotive lube instead of triflow?  Anybody currently supported directly by a lube company?
