    Did ProLink chain lube change their bottle?

    So this might be a weird question but...

    I tried to find it on the interwebs the other day and I'm not sure if I'm looking at the right stuff... on the mtbr website, on the reviews of Prolink chain lube, it's a white bottel with blue letters and a narrow top. Then I tried to order some on amazon and it looks way different. Is it some sort of nock-off?? Did they change their packaging? what's going on????? I'll put links so you know what I'm talking about

    the white bottle looks very old... and they don't change the pics on those review pages. the last bottle I saw had the yellow label. so they changed, big deal

    The two most recent bottles that I bought look like the one on their page:

    Thank you guys so much for your responses!! I know it probably sounds like a stupid question, I just wanted to make sure I was getting the real thing. I've heard such great things about it on reviews and forums on here, I wanted to buy some but I thought it'd suck to get tricked into buying some fake offbrand stuff that wasn't as good.

    Thanks

    A few years ago the bottles were like the one shown on the Amazon page. Then they went to one with a flip off top attached by a thin strip of plastic - I didn't like this version and it didn't last long. Now they seem to be using one with a flip up nozzle (like some bathroom cleaners), but I'm just making 'homebrew' and putting in my older ProLink bottles.

    The stuff on Amazon is sold by Niagara Cycle Works. They're a legit shop. I've purchased a lot of stuff from them. ProLink is great. I use home-brew too, but in my opinion, ProLink works better. Best deal I've found on it is the 3-packs at Performance. I usually wait until there's a 20% off sale there and then stock up.

    Performance has the 3-pack on sale right now. It's a great deal.
