Why would anyone use WD-40 on a bicycle?

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.

You are better off using thicker, bike specific grease.
