Makes your drivetrain run quietly

Negatives

Additional notes
So having my drive train rust after needing to wash it in the shower whilst travelling in the UK, I identified the need for lube. CycleSurgery was the closest bike shop to where I was staying. The store guys said this stuff is awesome, it will make your drive train run quieter. I was like yeah whatever, and explained somewhat arrogantly that I use Purple Extreme. So I put it on. It is a white, quite thick paste. Bit unusual I thought. I left it for about 5min. I went back to wipe it off and most had disappeared. I wiped it down anyway.

I go for a ride the next evening and, oh my goodness, my running gear is so quiet. I am shifting so easily. Now I am not one to recommend usually, most things are much of a muchness, but this was a surprising product. Very disappointingly, I noted the 'highly flammable' warning on the package and left it behind. I will be buying some on my next order though. It was amazing.
