Paid £6 for it in my local bike shop.

400ml often 1.85 but heat if you want a small can

Not a fan of GT85 as a lubricant, but for £1 a can, you can't go wrong having a can in your garage! Heat from me..

It's good stuff for spraying on the chain, gear cables, brake handles, pedal springs etc to stop rusting, but agreed buy a good quality lube , I use this spray when I've had a cold ride and hosed down my bike, and can't be bothered to sort the chain immediately
The blue Rock n roll for £6 a bottle is quality on mtb that get muddy

Is this £1 in-store or is it only on-line? Is it something nuts like ten thousand quid in-store because you did not order it online?

Totally agree, it's a great water dispersant.. I use TF2 Dry Wax on both the MTB & Road Bike - Love that stuff!

Unbelievable, that a product never designed to be anything close to a lubricant, doesn't work well as a lubricant. Anyone parroting this tosh about GT-85 or WD-40 should be shot.

Dont understand why people use this on chains its not meant for that. It will actually strip lubricants that are on the chain.

I use it on the chromework on my motorbike so that it survives the winter under a tarp!

this is also great for cleaning your bike frame too

Not disagreeing but it's described at Halfords as a lubricant and the bumf on their website says Safe on rubber, suitable for cleaning and lubrication of 'O' ring and chains

i ordered 4 cans, my local gave me 400ml cans as 200ml sold out. Result.

I use it as a de-greaser on my drivetrain. Works a treat.

I regularly use GT85 as a chain lubricant and get excellent results from it. I checked your opinion on my give-a-toss-ometer but I think it's faulty as it's reading zero. I hope that helps.

cant be the same as wd40,you cant lubricate the chain with that.

Great item, great price and all kinds of uses...

I spray it on my bike frame, stood anything clinging to is and just wipes clean!
Also spray it onto curtain pokes for that smooth glide feel.
Works good on vehicle plastic trim to keep shiny & black.

GT85 isn't really a lubricant - it's primarily a cleaner and water dispersant. I can't remember the name of it but a German bike magazine sent some for lab analysis and the amount of PTFE in it was miniscule. If you think it lubricates your chain (as opposed to removing dirt) given the huge amount of metal on metal friction involved, then great, but there's no science to back that up.

I use this mainly on my tyres and wheels, makes them look brand new again. Shame there's none in my local store!

What would people recommend for use on chains at a cheap price? I only have a cheap bike so wouldn't want to spend too much on it.

titchyyyyy

"Tested and approved by the Ministry of Defence and with BS5750 and specific NATO accreditation, GT 85 is the powerful and safe lubricant spray for virtually all engineering, sport, machinery and transportation uses. GT85 is ozone friendly and non-carcinogenic, so therefore safe in use."

I think it's safe to say GT85 does a sufficient job in lubricating a bicycle chain, main rotor swashes on Chinook helicopters are Teflon coated and there's a bit more friction involved on one of those than you're average bicycle chain.

I don't think you understand the issues. Using something like GT85 is better than using nothing and better than bare metal rubbing or bare metal, or bare plastic rubbing on bare plastic, or bare wood rubbing on bare wood. GT85 is used in vehicle and machinery maintenance. So is WD40. MOD use it and so do many other organizations. Doesn't mean it's a high quality lubricant, and I've no idea where you've got that Chinook nonsense from. As I've said previously, its primarily a water dispersant and cleaner. Even army machinery need cleaning to prevent dirt up and rust.

Ok price bearing in mind it is 200ml (half normal 400ml serving)

I would love to stay and chat about the problems you're facing with your bare wood rubbing on some other guys wood but like you said, I don't understand the issues.

You're clearly not a Chinook engineer, since you're talking utter baloney.

But please do prove me wrong - identify the part(s) in the photo below that you claim get lubricated with GT85:

I wouldn't use it as a lube(!) but use it as a water displacer after washing my mountain bikes and then lube them with Finish Line oil. Seems to do the job.

Chinook swashplates move up and down on the slider shaft which is Teflon coated.

Here's all the proof you need:
