Grease - What kind?
Getting a new tire put on my Wee, so I pulled the rear wheel off myself to save a few dollars with labor cost. I cleaned everything up real good while everything was off the bike and easily accessible, but in the process I wiped away some "dirty grease" that had grime/dirt in it. I'd like to replace this grease but don't know exactly what type to get. Will regular "general purpose" grease work? I've seen Lithium, Hi-Pressure, Hi-Temp, waterproof, Petroleum, etc... All different kinds and I want to make sure I get the right one for this purpose.
Any suggestions? I'll look back through the Owners Manual and search this site again, but please chime in with what will work best for all those rear tire moving parts.
