    It doenst make any sense why it would, but i find WD-40 on my grips while installing them is better than that really smelly grip glue.

    Hairspray is ok.
    WD-40 works wonders.
    Spray Adhesive(spray paint glue) works ok too.
    Grip Glue smells and leaves gunk on your bars.

    never put WD-40 on bearings or your chain. THat is the worst thing you can do for your bike. You might as well just go without lube if you are gonna use WD-40

    Because it goes on wet and slippery, but dries very quickly.

    use grease on the bearings, and i think you can use wd40 on the cables.

    You are better off using thicker, bike specific grease.
