stevet My local Ace Hardware has it on the shelf. I just checked the Ace website, their site only sells the Dupont Teflon lithium grease spray can, not the multi-use stuff we are using on our chains. But my local store has the multi-use lube on their shelf all the time, yours should be able to order it, make sure it's the multi-use lube.

But, Bob's Cycle Supply (retail and web/catalog mail order) in St. Paul, MN sells all three Dupont Teflon spray products, including the blue label multi-use spray lube for $6.29 for the big can (11oz?). They also have the Dupont Teflon silicone spray and lithium spray grease, if you are so inclined to use those products around your home/shop.

GrayWolf Lowe's carries it. You probably have it local but you can also order from them online. I've also read on a thread that ACE Hardware will order it for you.

cjlindberg Thanks for the replies, after i checked the riderwarehouse i found that i have the t-9 lube for my mountian bike. I'll lube it before i go and take that with me. I have been looking for the Dupont spray in a big can but cannot find it locally. Any place to order on line?

MeefZah I'm a WD40 at every gas stop man, myself.

fallenreck I like to put my lube in a double plastic bag just in can the lid does pop off for some reason. Don't want that mess in you box or bag.
I lube up on trips at gas stations. Just like grey wolf said every other stop. They also have lots of paper towels you can use to make a minimal mess. Plus, if you do make a little mess, IT'S A GAS STATION. They have more oil, gas, diesel, and whatever else on the ground than most places....
Have a safe trip...

I wonder how thick it is.. I'm thinking we can modify the lubeman to disperse teflon multi-use.....

Be careful not to blast that lube right onto your back brake.
