    Best Spray grease for Pivots on Suspension?

    I bought my first full suspension bike this year and have never had to worry about the pivots on a rear suspension before now. The owner’s manual says to just spray the pivots after a bike wash with a spray grease. Anyone have a favorite spray grease they can recommend? Is spray grease the same as lube for a drive train?

    Thanks in advance!

    main thing to consider when cleaning the pivots is to 1st flush any water out - i use gt85, its like wdd40, only it leaves behind a coating of teflon.

    every few months i also do a full rebuild of the bike anyways, for a general clean inspection and lube.

    what bike have you bought ? if it has a full compliment of sealed cartridge bearings you dont really have to grease anything - just keep the thing clean.

    Thanks for your reply.

    It's a Scott Genius. The manual says to just spray it after a wash. I just want to make sure I'm not using anything that is going to attract more dirt and sand.
