I'm sure there wouldn't be anyone reading this that doesn't know what WD-40 is or what it does. It is so ubiquitous and versatile that it has spawned hundreds of uses, many of which I'm sure it's inventors probably never imagined. Coincidentally just this weekend I happened to be watching woodchopping (as you do on a spring Sunday morning) and wafting through the air was that familiar smel,l as the axemen sprayed their blades with that well known blue and yelow can. It is a product so widely regarded it is one half of the famous engineering flowchart.
Over the years there has been much debate over the suitability of WD-40 as a bike lube and in the days before bike specifc products it was possibly as good as anything else available, but in the age of high tech and use specific products WD-40 has brought out a range of bike specific cleaning and lube products to keep your pride and joy in ship shape and running smoothly and as a world leader in the lubricant market there is no reason the believe the won't bring the same expertise to it's bike specific range.
The range contains a foaming wash, degreaser, frame protectant and wet and dry lubes. While most of u up till now may have used products to fulfill these tasks and hoped for the best, the WD-40 range is formulated to be safe for the exotic materials and finishes of todays modern bikes, be that titanium aluminium or carbon fibre.
With the sub tropical spring weather Sydney has been serving up I will have no shortage of opportunities to test out the range very shortly and will report back on the results of the bike specific products and also some of their other new and possibly lesser known products that also make bike maintenance less of a chore.
