Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

this stuff?

i like the finish line teflon grease. super thick, lasts a long time in bearings, and it's real easy to tell if it's contaminated because it's whitish/clear. tri-flow makes something that's pretty much the exact same stuff. comes in a tube or a tub.
