This was the first item we ever sold, back on January 4, of 1995. It is good for lots of things on and off the bike, and your life will be improved just slightly by having a tub of it around. On the bike, use it on all threaded surfaces, where it acts both as lubricant and anti-loosening stuff (like loctite). For instance, chainring bolts, threaded pedal dustcaps, headset locknuts, and bottom bracket cups. Off the bike, it strengthens string, so if you're hand-sewing on a button, use it. Put it on screws and nails to help them penetrate better. On shoelaces, so they'll stay tied.
