It is expensive, but you don't even need much of it to coat your gears or cylinder etc...

Asked a mountain bike racer and he told me it is the same stuff as Slickoleum

As I said before, it's *REALLY* not that critical to find the absolute best lube for your gears.
Seriously.
Superlube would be fine.
You're not greasing UU/UP tolerance bearings, or high pressure herring-bone gears.
The wear is REALLY not substantial after 300,000 rounds. You're far more likely to have a gear fail due to a manufacturing problem or a piston jam.
And if you have one of those gearsets made of soft havarti, then premalube is absolutely not going to prevent wear; because at that point it's more forced deformation than is it wear by friction.

The grease has more use in reducing sound and keeping dust out of the compression parts than it does reducing wear.
That being said, a tacky gear grease (like chain grease) is going to be better than a sliding grease (like superlube) for the above reasons.
Tacky, not thick. Thick is bad. NLGI 1 or 2.

Did more research. Premalube is marketed under Certified Laboratories with an office in Brampton. Just Google it for their contact number.

Update. It seems that after a call the company that sells Premalube do not sell it through any dealers but direct. Their selling method is to have sales person visit your firm and do a "AVON" style of selling.

They are not interested in tiny off the street sales.

At this point I will just get Slick Honey or Slickoleum from any bike shop.

ThunderCactus, you are lucky you got a free gift.

$60/5 gallons is good price for the grease lol ($60 for the oil is a rip-off)
