Getting ready to lube my new S/S cables before installing them. I have used dri-slide cable lube in the past. Good lube, however, it will darken/blacken the stainless steel cable around the fittings where you apply the dri-slide. Has anyone tried Tri-flow lube?? I heard it will not darken the cable like dri-slide. What lube do you use?????

i work an aircraft for a living and some of the smaller planes have cables similar to that on our bikes for certain applications and we use tri flow all the time and i have never seen any staining from it. hope this helps.

I like tro-flow. It doesn't seem to attract dirt like the others (i.e oil) and provides good protection.
