Motorex White Grease has been a product that stirs mixed emotions in me. On the one hand its tenacity and buttery smooth effect is perfect for bearing surfaces-headsets, hubs, pedals and bottom brackets being the obvious candidates. Then again, at eighteen quid, it's a good deal more expensive than equally stubborn and moreover, seal friendly synthetics.
Motorex Bike Grease 2000 is a translucent, semi-fluorescent yellowy green unguent that reminds us a great deal of the stuff you find hiding in the threads of new Shimano components. It's proved itself to be extremely tenacious and is a good choice for high-wear applications and exposed locations.
I need to grease my speedplay pedals soonish, but don't want to spend £40 on Speedplay's own grease gun and lube.
Can I simply buy something generic?
This thick grease, formulated specifically for bearings, provides immediate lubrication/protection for free/hubs, pedals, headsets and bottom brackets while resisting the ravages of rough stuff, cross and similar duties admirably.
Formulated for wet-weather performance, Fenwick’s complex synthetic grease is a heavyweight general-purpose assembly paste perfect for free/hubs, bottom bracket and other bearing surfaces through to contact points-even on bikes such as crossers, mountain bikes, winter trainers and stripped- to- basics single speed/commuter fixers thanks to the blend’s tenacity and complex properties. That said I have some reservations concerning its long-term compatibility with elastomer suspension bushes and stick with dedicated pastes when installing carbon and Ti components.
