This is one of the most commonly asked questions we at Jax have received over the years. We realize that some riders may have their specific “favorite brand”, but we wanted to address the type of lube that best fits your needs. At Jax, we have been very happy with the Finish Line lubricants and cleaners, so we decided to share a great chart they have put together to inform and educate any type of cyclist as to which type of lube you should be using.

We work on thousands of bikes a year. The number one repair is flat tires. Nearly every rider has experienced the annoying flat tire.
One of the other common repairs we perform on bicycles are brake adjustments. Brakes squeaking, rubbing, too tight, too loose, etc. For most, brakes are the most important safety feature on the bicycle. So here are some tips to enhance your braking performance.
Glazed, hardened, dirty, or misaligned brake pads account for nearly all loss of braking power problems. Keep the surface of your brake pads clean and fresh by using sandpaper or steel wool to scuff away any debris, and hardened glaze. Check the alignment. The pad should be toed in about 1/8″ to first make contact with the rim at it’s front half. Additionally, the pad should contact the center of the rim. The pad should never rub the tire or hang off the rim. In general, clean and inspect your brake pads every month. Brake pads are inexpensive and relatively easy to replace. You’ll be amazed at the difference new brake pads make. Regularly clean your rims with a Multi Bike Degreaser. Your pads will work better and last longer.
Keep those rims clean!
