Re: [Geared_hub_bikes] Re: Coaster-brake lubricant???
- The Sta-Lube Marine grease MSDS shows that it's about 90% petroleum (heavy naptha distillates) so I guess whatever magic they work on it can only go so far in keeping it from mixing in contact with oiled moving parts. Sounds like it would be excellent for the other bearings on bikes, thanks for the details on performance in your AWs.

Jim, I apply Sta-Lube only to the bearings and labyrinth seal areas of my AW hubs while the planetary gears and pawls sparingly receive 10W-30. I rather suspect the Sta_-Lube to be somewhat miscible and so affected by the oil but my tear-downs of the AWsare so rare and done at mileage that is so very extended that I cannot say how quickly the Sta-Lube is degraded ---but it certainly happens.
