SRAM/Truvativ BB grease?
I got a Truvativ Gigapipe BB on my LeMond, and I got the hankering to take it out and see if I can clean it up and relube it. Are these BBs serviceable or they're a one-time deal like Shimano? Also, I read SRAM's tech pages and they call for SKF LGHP 2 polyurea grease. Can I use a non *cough*bike-specific*cough* polyurea grease like Mobil Polyrex EM/Chevron SRI #2 or clean out the bearings and use Red Line CV2 grease which is synthetic, contains red moly and thickened with calcium complex soap?
I can get the Mobil cheap through Grainger.
