Found 7th Apr 2014
Cheapest around at the moment.

great all round lubricant, better than WD40 in my opinion.

75p cheaper than Halfords
74p Cheaper than Asda
70p Cheaper than Wilko

This 400ml GT85 is a cleaning/lubricant spray that can be used on your bike. It is non-sticky, an effective penetrator, water displacer and rustproofer with PTFE.

A CFC-free propellant that is ideal for use on derailleurs, cables, cycle transmissions, hubs and brake levers, it can be used for both cleaning and lubrication. It has a powerful new spray action that flushes out crud, leaving a tough, long lasting PTFE film that lubricates and protects all metal and plastic parts.

Looking at the description.........My missus would pay 50 quid a tin if it turned me into an 'effective penetrator'

Wouldn't put this sort of rubbish near any part of my bike.

Might be ok "better than nothing" alternative for a BSO, but that's about it!

It has no business being on a bike. That's all.

Jack of all trades, master of none. Sure it's fine for general household stuff, sticky locks and what not. Just not a bike.

GT85 is one of those good products that every motorcyclists and cyclist should have; cleans, polishes metal & stops dirt sticking. I use on both my motorcycle, as it protects all my engine casing from the elements, the fenders etc. and I use on all the family pushbikes. It is sold in most cycle and motorcycle stores.
To all you dis-believers out there, I highly recommend it, great price too!

I completely disagree with this.

it is great for cleaning the chain and other parts as long as you let it dry off then re-lube if keeps things running smoothly and protects against rust.

Good price! Heat Added!

You obviously have no idea what you are taking about. I have used this for years, as have all my cycling friends.

This is the definitive lube for all bikes, apply liberally and often. More expensive oils are pointless, especially most chain oils which tend to turn your chain into a dirt magnet.

times and technology have moved on.
for my motorbike. (if my pushbike was for all year left outside I'd brush it with actf50 too))
WD40/GT85 for cleaning/drying.(Water Displacement). the lubrication in gt85 is miniscule compared to the effects of its solvents.
ACF50 for rust protection (Anti-Corrosion Formula). Costs more , but 1 coat lasts all year
Chain lube for chain , obviously.

How does the PTFE film stick to the part being lubricated?

Why not consider covering your motorbike with a waterproof cover if kept outside?

Great for cleaning chains and gunk off the bike.

Excellent stuff to clean and protect on bikes, use this all the time, ordred a couple of tins, thanks op HOT!

Would this work on a squeaky back door?

I prefer ky jelly or Vaseline. Lot smoother and less of a smell

paid £3 at tesco on sunday.

As others have said you are way off with that comment. Unlike WD40 this does actually have light lubrication properties and is a great general purpose cleaner\light oil for cables and shifters.

Someone that knows what they are talking about ACF is literally a purple god, but not very well known over here. I use it all the time on anything I can get away with

Bike cables should run dry, putting any lubricant or the likes of this in the inners will only attract dirt and cause them to operate poorly.

Likewise it's too light a lubricant for a chain. Decent to clean it and displace the water but always lube up with a proper chain lube.

Well I must have pretty clever chains on my pushbikes then, because they last for ages in all weathers with just GT85 (often!).

GT85 - see my comment above. Too many people falling into the "it's cheap so it must be no good" trap. Yes, you have to apply it more often, but it's cheap and easy to apply so who cares?

This is great stuff for cleaning, lubricating cables etc, but i wouldn't use it a chain lube, buy a good chain lube after you've cleaned the chain.

Great deal, i always spray the frame, pedals etc on my motorbike with GT85 after washing and it seems to be doing a great job of keeping the rust away.
Makes the paintwork and plastics shine like new.

If You know anything about bikes really you'll know that this really isn't a good long lasting LUBE. That main use is for moving parts and as a water displacer!
A great price for this! But definitely need a ''proper'' lubricant for chains

i use white lightning. great stuff.

No-one's yet provided an explanation for why expensive chain lubes are better than this, if applied regularly.

I'd take that with a pinch of salt.

Decent PTFE coated cables in good condition should not have lube put anywhere near them.
