    What grease do you use in your speedplays

    I am at 8000 miles on my current speedplays. They need a little grease, so I bought the injector by Manitou. What grease do you guys use with it for speedplays? I didn't get the speedplay version that is prepacked with grease, so I am fishing around. Would the Manitou grease that came with the gun be OK? I also have a tube of Philwood green grease that fits the adapter. I am leaning that way personally.

    The Speedplay stuff is CRC Sta-Lube Marine Grease. It's something like $6 for 3 30oz cartridges. They fit in one of those industry standard $8.99 grease guns that Speedplay sells for $20 bucks or something....

    Fwiw

    I have a set of Frogs with about 5k miles and I've been using the Manitou PrepM grease on them. This grease is probably a little light for the application (certainly not as viscous as marine grease or Phils) but it seems to work. I figure some grease is better then no grease... I give them a couple of shots every 1k to 1.5k miles....

    I use whatever marine grease I find at the hardware store.

    If you don't want to spend that much on a stupid little grease gun most craft stores sell plastic syringes (mine is called the "pretty petal pumper") that work just as well for speedplay pedals and only cost a couple bucks.
