I hate all the bike specific products for being so small in size and so expensive compared to their normal cousin, e.g. lubricants, cleaning products, etc. As a result, I have never used any bike specific product. I recently suggested a bicycle tourist on a budget riding overseas who ordered a bunch of parts for her bike, to not spend $12 on the 6 oz. chain lube and use motor oil available at any gas station, but she followed the advice of her local expert and host and went ahead.
