    Anybody use white grease?

    I picked up some "white grease" (under $2 at x-mart) to use on an x-mart set of brake/derailleur cables/housing (as per the instructions of the kit). Comes in a spray can. Realized the stuff works pretty good as a chain lubricant. Anybody use this stuff as an all-around bike lube? Seems like it does a good job of "sticking" to the moving parts, is quite moisture resistant and cleaner than machine oil, which used to be my choice of lube. My only reservation is I'm not sure how good it does at penetrating the moving parts.

    I use spray grease to lube the hinges on my steel storage unit's door hinges...but I avoid any spray lube products on bicycles. A drop at a time from a squeeze bottle puts lube where you need it and none where you don't.

    White grease is also great for seat posts, stem posts, and stem-to-handlebar matings. Keeps them from being...permanent. I use the tall tube and a small flux brush and it goes pretty much where I want it.

    Today, I believe my jurisdiction ends here...
