    Strengths:    It actually works.

    Weaknesses:    No local supplier as of yet.

    Bottom Line:   
    I felt evil dumping out the contents of my chain cleaner. Yes, call me a polluter but I decided to do something about it. So I did a bit of research and I discovered Green Oil and decided to purchase a bottle.

    Green Oil is similar in form and function to a wet lube but unlike most lubes it is non-toxic and biodegradable. It does not perform as well as the lube it replaced, Boeshield T-9, but for something that is not detrimental to the environment it does a mighty fine job. It is a little noisier and needs to be applied a little more often but I no longer get that guilty feeling when re-lubing my chain. I use this in conjunction with Finish Line Citrus degreaser and I can honestly say I sleep just that much better at night.

    So, bottom line? I'll be the first to admit that it does not perform as well as some of the synthetic stuff but i'm talking maybe a few percentage points. I find no real increase in chain wear. The product is 100% biodegradable, non-toxic and it actually works and for that it deserves 5 stars.

    Strengths:    Green Oil sticks to the chain for ages and lubricates well. The generous 100ml bottle lasts for ages and the long nozzle makes it easy to apply. The bottle is environmentally friendly as well, so you don't have to worry about those petroleum distillates oppressing monks in Burma or anything.

    Weaknesses:    The label is made of recycled (and recyclable) paper so stains easily. That doesn't really matter, the bottle gains character over time. Its not a bottle of beauty cream after all, nor KY Jelly! Unlike other lubes, you have to nip the top with scissors the first time which is annoying, but its great apart from that.

    Bottom Line:   

    Green Oil is great for your bike, and great for the environment.

    This lube is suitable for all mountain biking, and anyone with a green conscience (which hopefully means everyone).

    'Destroy limits not nature' as the bottle says.

    Winter chain lube comparison.

    So I thought I would use this winter to try out several different chain lubes and give a write-up comparison here. I live in Mesa and my riding consists mostly of Red Mountain, Gold Canyon, McDowells, South Mountain and San Tan. I will be using SS, 3x10 and eventually 1x10 with One-Up conversion as ...

    What lube for suspension

    I have had a Fox FloarR since 2007, and I've never serviced it - but I've never had a reason to until now. I had to replace the valve on the shock so I opened it up to clean it out and I would like to replace the lube. All the o-rings look great, so I am going to keep them. I was thinking that ...
