Purple Extreme: Test in Progress

We’ve had this lube for a few months and have had the chance to test it out on a number of bikes we have. Bike that include mountain, road, fixed and kids bike. Heck even door hinges have benefited from this lube.

So here’s a preview of what the review will look like…..

In the application of a mountain biking lube, Purple Extreme, though it states on the bottle, “400 miles between applications“, we found that the lube will last no more than 20-30 miles per application in the So. Cal trail conditions that include dry and dusty trails. However, in road applications, I’ve used this lube on my fixed gear bike a few months ago and have yet to reapply it. It has been at least 350 miles since my last Purple Extreme treatment on my Redline 925.

You can read the rest of the review by the end of the week. So stay tuned.
