it bad no casue it has water ita water detertent... but because it is classified as a light lubercant.

in lamest terms if breaks down to fast.

grease doesnt.

think of it this way it alot easier to get wd40 off your hands then it is to get grease off... now think of your hands as bearings... you want grease on your bearings and you dont want it to coem off easy.

short term is fine we are talking like maybe a day here max. its not a degreaser it a water deteriant. thats why its pretty much safe to use on electionics. i have no idea what triflow is.

no, wd 40 does not have water, WD stands for water displacment and the 40 is the 40th try to make the formula right, true story

Guys. Bearing grease in bearings. Lithium based stuff is fine. I'd recommend the general purpose stuff as it is lighter than the automotive wheel bearing grease, and better for bikes. But wheel bearing grease is okay as well. Lighter oils will not work due to the friction (heat).

I do stuff and I'm not good at it.

Ding ding winner.I like phil wood grease.Off the top of my head,the other main brands are Park and Finish line.The viscosity of chain lube is way to low,and tri flow wont cut it either.

dont ever use WD 40 on anything. unless your trying to take stickers off. WD 40 is great for your chain once you put it on. but then you go hit the trails, then with end an hour your chain is DRY, and its coverd in dirt. it take away half of the life of your chain.
for my BB and my headset, I use what is known as in the army as GAA grease. for hubs, if i start to have a problem out side of it just becoming loose. I take it to the shop. I also use GAA grease on my seat post. keeps it from rusting.
Whitlighting is the best on your chain. It keeps dirt off, simi dry, and lubed up.

I use WD on my bike all the time, but only for cleaning. Its good for degreasing stuff. But I always wipe it out after awhile, and then grease everthing back up I used it on. Is good for getting rust out, and loosening stuff up. But always wipe down and grease stuff back up.
For my chain the best thing I have found that works for me, is using gun oil on it. Good for my guns good for my chain. Always have some remington gun oil wipes with me. Cleans the chain good and keeps it lubed good.
