Nice clean lube, good longevity

PostedMay 20, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Ok I bought this as there was not my normal brand available (purple extreme) in store. But I have been very impressed so far. The product is very similar to PExtreme, lets see if it lasts or makes the chain last as long!

A little dissapointed

PostedApril 3, 2012
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
Cons: doesn't work well in dry dusty conditions
I'm a little dissapointed with this lube. I bought it with because of its "all conditions" label.
I have had to clean the chain now after each dry trail centre ride because it was full of dust. I'd have expected it to last a few rides before needing a clean.
At this rate the chain will need replacing a lot sooner than planned.
Back to the specific dry and wet lubes for me.

Most impressed

PostedJanuary 13, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Up until now I've always used Finish Line and I wasn't sure how Fenwicks would stack up against it.
Thankfully I have been pleasantly surprised. I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and have found it works really well - even during the many wet, dreary days we've been having.
Overall it is excellent value for money and does a great job. I will be buying more once I run out.

Best Libe

PostedNovember 17, 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: none
The three grades, Wet, General and Dry, allow you to simply wipe the chain and use a less sticky grade wet to dry as conditions when you ride dictate, dry to wet simply apply the lube. The all conditions grade protects better in wet conditions then all other wet lubes I have tried, and the wet lube does does not wash off. After a wet ride should you not clean up and relube staight away there is still protection and the chain does not show the beginnings of corrosion other lubes do. If you don,t want to bother with the grades "all conditions" is just that.

Best in the wet

PostedAugust 13, 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
I use this when the roads are wet and cannot fault it. It is easy to apply and keeps all the parts free from rust. It does attract dirt but all lubes of this type do.
