    Campy White Grease worth $45 for 100ml

    Looking for opinions. Is Campy white grease worth $45 for 100ml? I don't use very much white grease, so it would probably last me quite a while. Just wondering if it is worth $45 or if a tube of lithium grease from Home Depot could take its place.

    well I am not that sure that a shift cable costs $5 either.

    But I guess you are sponsoring the Teams fabs, think about Tommy Voeckler and Cuddles when you buy your Campy Stuff

    Yeah, somebody has to pay for their EPO, testosterone, blood transfusions, etc.

    I think I am going to go with some lithium grease from Home Depot or Performance Bike.

    I think Cuddles is on SRAM now. Unless my Cuddles is not the same as your Cuddles.

    It costs a lot because Campy built a special oil refinery just to produce the stuff. Accept no substitutes!

    I bought some for $32

    Still questionable but I use it on some (Campy) hubs that have steel bearings.
    I think I price matched it on bikeman.com, they have tons of small Campy parts and stuff.
    The tube will last me for several years.

    Looks like Ribble carries it for $34 and that is where I usually order my Giordana apparel from. Might get some grease over the fall because I want a set of Giordana Forma windproof bibs.

    Seriously though, is the Campy grease that much different from the Finish Line teflon white grease?
