WD-40 Bike

WD-40 announces a new business unit, WD-40 BIKE. Thoughts and comments on this?

WD-40 Bike lube

Products include a dry lube, wet lube, degreaser, foaming wash and frame protectant and will be launched in the USA at Interbike in September, where dealers can place orders.

These clearly aren’t WD-40′s more familiar solvent/lubricant spray that sometimes cause so much controversial conversation in the bike shop. The press release announcing WD-40 BIKE says “The WD-40 brand is definitely no stranger to bicycling. The original WD-40 Multi-Use Product has been a mainstay in the toolboxes of bike mechanics for decades. The new WD-40 BIKE line blends our considerable experience with the demands of today’s bike technology to present a comprehensive high-performance maintenance package.”

Look for it in your local bike shop in a month or three.
