Which readily available grease is safe to use on fork elastomers? I see that Pace do their own 'special' grease etc, just wondering which chemical in some grease is bad for elastomers (lithium?).

SRAM Butter, formerly known as RockShox Judy Butter but a slightly different colour and formulation, but essentially the same stuff, and available from all good bike shops.

And no, don't use lithium metal grease on the elastomers. Never used the Pace RC Grease but it'll also be fine, but probably ten times the price of the SRAM stuff.

Correct, but here in UK Slikoleum is more expensive than SRAM even though the SRAM is made by Slikoleum :lol: Also Slick Honey is very similar.

Don't spend too much.
You only need a smear.
