Does this sound like you…?
Have you ever valiantly fought but eventually lost a battle attempting to remove your your pedals or cleats? Have you ever had to hang your head and walk into your LBS or ask your non-judgmental bike mentor to help you remove your pedals because you couldn’t do it yourself? If this sounds like you…today is your day to stop being such a loser. Next time before you install a pedal or a cleat, add a generous portion of Phil Wood’s Waterproof Grease all up in and around the threads. Don’t be stingy, get it in there good. If after you install them a little excess squeezes out, simply wipe it off with a paper towel.
The other day, while I was preparing to clean my bike in the back yard, I found another helpful use for the grease: I had difficulty removing the fittings on my garden hose so after I forced it undone, I lubed up both ends of the hose with grease and am now able to quickly and easily unscrew it from the spigot and the sprayer head. While this is perhaps not Mr. Wood’s original intent, it works great for this purpose too. Perhaps you can think of other applications around your house.
So be a pal and run down to your local Spokes,Etc. and pick up a tube for yourself and for your formerly loser friends too. Makes a great birthday gift, stocking-stuffer or pinata-filler.
Retails: $12.99 for 3 oz tube
