KY Jelly axle grease

Have you ever used this lubricant when you ran out of axle grease?
Pros: super lubricanty
        Dramatically reduces friction
         Keeps working parts moist
        Silicone based
        Works better when warm
Cons: clear so you don’t know if it’s still in your bearings
         Thinner than traditional bearing grease

I was thinking of replacing all my bearings grease on my bikes with this. What’s your thoughts? http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/82308/7e4245e4-df1a-4788-a288-4802b307bafa5cfea73927.png

Re: KY Jelly axle grease

I use automotive wheel bearing grease,cheap as heck for a tub of it and works just as good as the overpriced tiny tube of bicycle grease you buy at the bike shop.

Re: KY Jelly axle grease

KY is funny, but its also water based, not petroleum based.   It will wash clean out of the hole if it gets wet, like the intended application.

Automotive axle grease is the way to go.  If i can put it in my car bearings and drive 80 all day in the rain and snow it will sure as hell stand up to anything I can do pedal powered.

Re: KY Jelly axle grease

I tried using KY when doing over a front hub a while back.

I started lubing up the axle shaft and, uh, got a little carried away.

I found a much more durable product to replace the KY:
