I've been using Park Tool Polylube for ages. I'm wondering if there's any cheaper grease that anyone can recommend for greasing up seatposts, bolts, headsets, etc.

Anything

Vaseline, goose fat , castrol lm , have a look in your dads / grandads shed , that big can of stuff he got from the railway is probably the best you can get , not Eco friendly ,but bearing friendly.
