At road.cc every product is thoroughly tested for as long as it takes to get a proper insight into how well it works. Our reviewers are experienced cyclists that we trust to be objective. While we strive to ensure that opinions expressed are backed up by facts, reviews are by their nature an informed opinion, not a definitive verdict. We don't intentionally try to break anything (except locks) but we do try to look for weak points in any design. The overall score is not just an average of the other scores: it reflects both a product's function and value – with value determined by how a product compares with items of similar spec, quality, and price.
Good scores are more common than bad, because fortunately good products are more common than bad.
This Bio Grease from Pedros is so wholesome you could spread it on your toast. Okay, maybe that's going a bit far but it is at least non-toxic and biodegradable, so you can slap it on guilt free. It's good stuff too, though it does have a tendency to separate in the heat.
The 85g tube comes with a hole that's just the right size for poking bolts into to give them a good coating – this is an important consideration – and a sturdy top that means it stands upright on the shelf. The grease itself is off-white and fairly thick, though if you're keeping it in a shed or garage that regularly gets hot in the summer you'll need to squidge it around inside the tube a bit before you use it, as like I said, a thinner oil does tend to separate out.
The grease is solid enough to pack ball bearings into a race with no problems and testing through the winter has shown it to be pretty tenacious stuff; not the hardiest I've ever tested but plenty tough enough for everything you'd want to grease on a bike.
Good quality grease that'll leave you with a slick bike and a clean conscience
