This one?


That's the bunny, best lubricant I've ever used (No3) kind of dried to a waxy film and didn't wash off like a lot of the dry lubes.

Sounds like the kind of wax/grease left on a new chain. Much like the 99p stuff from Lidl that I wish I'd have bought more of a the time cus that worked a treat.

I wouldn't use eigher on anything electrical related.
If you need a switch cleaner or something then use IPA, Halfords sell it as:

I don't know it's conductivity so make sure everything is dry (it evaporates very quickly) before using.

Having used both for long periods and lots of riding I vote for GT85 and it smells good too

WD40 is easy to source in Denmark.

GT85 isn't.

I use GT 85 for everything except chains and bearings.

Nuff said.

All I'll say is GT85 smells nice

WD40 displaces water...

What you really want is Brunox Turbo Spray with Turbolene in it, it says Turbo on the can and has turbo in the can, what more do you need!!!

Actually the Brunox wee's from a great height on GT & WD

It has much more product in the can (97% of the contents is the product,only 3% propellant) & it has no silicone in it unlike GT, much better penetration than WD & it's been used in our workshop for a year now on everything but chains & forks (Brunox do a chain lube too & a fork lube which is recommended by Rockshox)

It's bloody good stuff!

I prefer muc off silicone shine for a buff up. Smells gorgeous.
