Found 29th Jun 2014
Aldi specialbuys says £2.99 and when I went to the Shipley store the sign above the rack said £1.99 so I grabbed some but after checking my receipt it was actually £1.49

Thanks for posting, retailer added

Smells lovely.

Not just for bikes, btw.

1.99 in my local, but still a great price.

Nice better than halfords price

hot hot hot, been racing for 30 years and I use nothing else for cleaning and lubing the chains on my bikes. Cant own and run bikes without it...

Well it's got 45 more whatevers than WD40, so heat.

This goes for nearly a fiver at my local bike shop now!

this has taken over from WD40 for me, its better in every way

Still £3 in Glasgow

For cleaning, leaving behind a film for a lube or protection, i.e bike chains, hinges, you can mix a cap full of oil with white spirit, which was the bases for WD40. Much cheaper. If you want a nice smell, experiment with 2-stroke racing oils, like Shell M.

It's ok for cleaning bikes, but shouldn't be used on chains.

It isn't a chain lube.

Hot, but do NOT put this on your bike chain.

None of the bikes, I have been with, have needed any lubricant!:{

What's the science behind not putting on chain?

You can and should!

Bunch of numpties have used nothing else on my chains for years better than engine oil etc it does not pick the dirt up as much when out on a trail so less sh1t on my chain means less wear no brainer really.

But I do re-lube chain after say 2/3 rides if I haven't had time to wash my bike as I notice it does wear/disappear with use.

Lots of people use this as a chain lube and successfully too.

(Back in my day we used good old 3-in-1 to lube chains..!)

This stuff is amazing - I've been using it on the motorbike for years! Love it

What is the issue with using this on chains? I've been using it since Halfords recommended I should use this on chains.

And before that, any old engine oil.

Been using it for years...coat my Suzuki Bandit chain with it after every ride...stayed good as new.

If I didn't already have a metric f**kton of GT85, I'd be all over this.

Best of luck with your black chain there, son.

Its too thin to be a lubricant on surfaces that are under high pressure like the roller surface where a chain meets a sprocket on a cycle.
Its perfect for protecting say the exposed fork legs on a motorcycle where seals wipe the lube off and its own bearings are internally lubricated.
In essence its thin,very thin so can penetrate where say heavier oil would not.
very good for dispersing water off surfaces and protecting electrics on vehicles.

Marked as £1.99 and goes through the till at that price In Telfords Snedshill branch.

Oh yes it is, its a dry chain lube.... I beg to differ...

No issue with using it on chains, its perfect and is a dry lubricant which fails to attract dirt, dust etc in anyway near the same amount as the oils others may use. I use mine for time trial, road, commuting and cyclo cross bikes....As difficult as it may seem, those people saying it shouldn't be used as a lube are using it incorrectly.... sorry but its true...

Great price and used in loads of automotive applications.

Ooh so I'm not the only one he,he

This is one of my favourites for starting engines, just squirt it down the carbs on Jet Ski,s, lawnmowers, bikes Etc. starts them and lubes them with Teflon at the same time. Great stuff, especially at this price !!! Dave.

1.99 in old Kent road.

£1.99 in my local but still well worth it.

£1.99 in Bolton also. I'm happy!

Paid £3 for this about a week ago at my local Aldi, will check the price today when i'm back there.

£2.99 here - I thought Aldi operated on national pricing.

Not national.
