Strengths:    Great lube, works on stubborn bolts.

Weaknesses:    N/A

Bottom Line:   
The only lube used at the shop. A little bit goes a long way. It even brings life to those old shifters from 20 years ago that won't work! You get what you paid for with this stuff...

Strengths:    Flat works. creaky cranks, stiff headset, stubborn bolts... all are no match for PG2000. A little goes a long way.

Weaknesses:    price can be a little intimidating

Bottom Line:   
I work for a school bus company with over 200 vehicles in service, and at any given point, there are at least 10 different penetrating oils lying around the shop. About 6 months ago I was given a sample of the PG2000 to try because my teammates were tired of listening to my creaky bottom bracket on training rides. One application and it hasn't been heard from since, I was thrilled, but apparently not as thrilled as the rest of the team. I've used a ton of different penetrating oils over the years working on vehicles, antiques, and of course bicycles. NEVER have I liked one more than I like ProGold's PG2000.

While it costs about twice as much as other products, it only takes about a third of what other products require for the same job. In the end, actually costs less because I use less product to get the job done, AND, I know its going to work everytime.
