So there's another bike product line - we'll see if it's really any different than the others, let alone better.

I think WD40 got off to a rough start with their new line when a few months ago they put an ad out with a photo of a guy on a TT bike from around 1987. Slight disconnect between product and customer. Hopefully their products are quality.

I have tried the stuff. Very convenient with the straw and good pressure. I spray into a rag. Very good pressure! I have used the sprayed on brakes, too! And derailleurs, too! And maybe some other stuff, too! Just experimenting mind you....Oh. Yeah. Go with the black cap! The yellow/gold cap stuff did work very well, I guess. Read up!

So now when someone says they use WD40 on their chain, no one will really know what they mean. Another layer of miscommunication for chain lube threads.

The bike wash works great. We use it in the shop everyday.

The lubes seam decent too.

Frame protector does a good job but requires a little work.

The degeaser is my least favorite. It is pretty thick, kind of hard to get back off once you put it on.

Hm. So much for it standing for water displacement formula, 40th attempt.

Simply amazing bike handling skills, but irrelevant to whether or not the products are good. They may well be, but time and experience will tell.
