This teflon product is what I use, please accept that w/o the anger and shouting.
There are many ways to achieve the goal (we all want the best for our bikes) and in our wet, damp, soggy climate of the northwest, this is what I found to extend the life of cables. Other parts of the country have different climates. Did you know that Washington state has two rain forests? That's what I'm talking about wetness, mold, mildew. Grease tends to gum things up and cause jumping of the needle while the teflon lube keeps the rotation free. I also stated that I do this once a year - including cleaning and lubing all cables at the beginning of each riding season. My bike is a sport as well as a commuter - and I'll be riding home in the rain today.
