LUBE LIKE NOBODY'S WATCHING
CHAIN – Because a chain is in constant motion and the drive link between you and your bicycle, proper lubrication is key to a safe and long journey.
Ride-Glide extends chain life, reduces wear, adjustments, replacements and is easy to clean.
Why pay hundreds of thousands of dollars on your bicycle then skimp by not purchasing the best bicycle lubricant money can buy?
Apply RIDE GLIDE – First time users must thoroughly clean chain, sprockets and derailleur. Apply generous amount of Ride-Glide to the chain while pedaling backwards. Wipe off excess with a clean rag.
After using Ride-Glide just once, you can now clean off with hot soapy water and reapply. No brushing or scrubbing required. Ride-Glide’s unique formula is designed to break down and detach dirt and grime during cleaning. Then a simple reapplication and your set for many more care free miles.
CLIPLESS PEDALS – Un-lubed, dry and dirty pedals are simply dangerous. Frequent use of Ride-Glide SPRING/SUMMER lubricant will allow you to safely disengage and effortlessly engage shoes. Proper application re-application will not only provide you with consistent performance but, extend the life of your pedals.
Apply RIDE GLIDE – Apply light coating of Ride-Glide SPRING/SUMMER to coil steel springs, adjusting screw threads, and slides every other ride for optimal performance, safety and reliability.
CABLES – Cables are one of the most ignored components on your bicycle. “Out of sight – Out of mind” can’t see the cable inside the sheathing! Cables have the propensity to trap moisture… lots of it. By design tubes are a perfect passage for wire and moisture from the road and perspiration. Regular use of “Free Flowing” Ride-Glide FALL/WINTER forces moisture out and keeps it out while lubricating.
Apply RIDE GLIDE – Shift the rear derailleur to the easiest gear/largest cog (front derailleur to the hardest gear/big chain ring). Then, without pedaling, click your shifter to upshift to the hardest gear/smallest cog (or the small chain ring in front). This will result in a nice amount of cable slack, and on some bikes allow you to slip the housing out of the slotted cable stops and coat the cables more thoroughly. Apply a few drops of RIDE-GLIDE BICYCLE LUBRICANT to your fingertips and slide them along the length of the cable until it’s covered in a thin film. Wipe dirt from your cables, paying special attention to where they run through the cable guide underneath the bottom bracket. Use the same lube and method of application on your brake cables.
PIVOT POINTS – Without lube the points on which the individual parts of your brakes and derailleurs pivot will not move as smoothly and will invite rust.
Apply RIDE GLIDE – Drip RIDE-GLIDE BICYCLE LUBRICANT onto each pivot point (rear derailleur; front derailleur; rear brake; front brake) every few months (more if you ride in wet conditions) to keep them protected and working well. Wipe off excess lube so it doesn’t attract dirt.
DERAILLEUR PULLEYS – Not only will you go crazy trying to track down the cause of that annoying squeak (commonly caused by neglected derailleur pulleys), but also the pulleys won’t rotate freely.
Apply RIDE GLIDE – Wipe off any built-up grime on your derailleur pulleys with a clean rag and degreaser. Then apply a small drop of RIDE-GLIDE BICYCLE LUBRICANT to the bearings at the center of the pulley. Backpedal a few revolutions, then use a clean rag to wipe off any lube that didn’t work its way into the bearings.
