    I've never used anti sieze on a bike. I hate it.
    Only ever used water proof grease. Never had an issue.

    Why do you hate anti-seize? The stickiness? My shop always uses it on BB threads, but uses Phil grease on most other stuff.

    BTW, I'm replacing the drivetrain on a older (2002 Cannondale Jekyll) mountain bike which I bought used a few years ago. I removed the BB which looks like it's been sitting in the bottom of a pond. I'm really surprised I was able to get it loose since the threads seemed pretty dry and lots of rust in there which had to be from the BB (bike is aluminum).

    I guess whatever works. If you never had a stuck BB, who am I to judge?

    Yea, the messiness of it. (not that it's a bad product, it does work)
    But grease has always worked too. I've never removed a BB that didn't still have grease on the threads.

    Never stuck, never loose, never water damaged after lots of wet & even megamuddy riding... Always about as perfect as I imagine any BB removal could possibly be.

    Go Phil!

    another vote for using Phil's on the BB, have never had a problem with that.

    can't recall ever using anti-seize on my bikes.

    I'm not anti-anti-seize. I would use it in high temperature applications. But not on my bike, when I still have loads of Phil in my lubricant bin.

    Or highly corrosive environments, like a boat.

    Wouldn't anti-anti-seize be the same as pro-seize? Sorry, I couldn't resist. :D

    You want one, don't you... even if there is no practical reason to have one...

    Well, Hell Yeah, I want one!

    Does it come with a reducer so I can use it with my 1/4" sockets?

    That is an out-of-date scientific misunderstanding. Giant pandas are actually bears, and not closely related to racoons. The much smaller red panda is related to racoons (and not closely related to the giant panda). The giant panda was given that name due to a mistake.

    Don't know anything about the grease quality, but animal fats aren't all that different from one another. So lard or beef tallow probably works as well as bear grease.

    Koalas, of course, are marsupials.

    I guess I'd better start doing a better job of research before I go spewing my knowledge as I've never heard of red panda.

    I can see that the red panda is related to the racoon

    but now that you mention it, who did decide to invite the panda to the family?

    Shame, shame! You guys shouldn't be using lube made from endangered animals. :nono:

    Don't forget whale oil, an excellent lubricant used in automatic transmission fluid until the late 70's.

    Only problem being it's too thin to pack bearings with. Well, that, and the probable price gouging if one did happen to find a supplier.

    Point taken. It might make a good chain lube tho. And considering the price gouging of some of the chain lubes on the market, it should fit right in, price wise.

    Chain lube? Did somebody say CHAIN LUBE?

    I just happen to know something about chain lube.

    Ask CX. Or look at one of his hundreds of posts where he shares my wisdom about chain lube.

    Or not.
