    Almost had a meltdown......................

    Settled down with a six of Tecate and a pair of Dura Ace hubs for a quiet evening of hub repacking and could not find the Phil grease. Was planning on replacing the crap Shimano grease with some good stuff. Tore the place apart looking for the stuff and finally found it.
    Nothing more erotic than green grease on a white washrag. Now everything is right with the world .

    Did you use a glass with a lime slice on the rim? It helps with restoring memory.

    That crap Dura Ace grease sells for $70 for a 500 gram can.

    Are you sure that Phil repackaged boat trailer grease is any better?

    Affirmative on the lime, sans glass...bottle only. Found the grease before partaking of any ETOH . Waiting on a Mavic Open Pro CD rim to arrive and then off to the LBS for a wheel build. I'm normally a Campy snob but decided to give the Dura Ace hubs a try. Gonna put a Wheels Manufacturing cassette on it. Picked up the front wheel (Dura Ace 7700 hub with Open Pro CD Ceramic rim) for a paltry $14.50 (new) . Could not part with it so I purchased the matching rear hub and parts for a sweet wheelset (I hope) .

    I only have experience with the Shimano Spin Doctor grease and I am not impressed (the stuff was grainy!). I've used the aforementioned boat trailer grease for about 20 yrs. with nary a problem. I've never used the Dura Ace grease but would be willing if you could send me some (running low on Phil grease) .
