Squirt Lube??

Just started using it as we our on tour. Not sure if I got a bad bottle but it seems very thick and even after shaking it doesn't seem to flow.
Anyone have any experience with this product?
Thanks!

If the bottle has been sitting for awhile, it takes quite a lot of shaking and whacks on the bottom to get the wax to mix. Setting it in a bowl of hot water can help.

I will give that a try.
Is it supposed to be similar in consistently as White Lightening Wax lube?

It consists of water, slack wax, and paraffin. It is much less runny that White Lightening. If some of the water has evaporated, it might be too thick. If warming it up doesn't work, add a bit of water and/or stove fuel. You will probably have to re-apply it fairly frequently.

Not sure i'd pick a lube like Squirt for a tour.. it's necessary to remember to apply the day before a ride in order for it to set and dry, and in even dry conditions, it's good for about only 6 hours (per Squirt).
