    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Boeshield T-9 Bicycle Lubricant - 4 oz. is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I've tried I've been working on bikes since 1976. This is the best stuff I've found and I've tried most of the others. Here's how I use it: Using a Park chain scrubber, I insert the T9 from the top holes of the chain scrubber and pedal backwards. I cover the holes with a small square of paper towel first to slow the application of the T9. Then I remove the chain scrubber and run through all the gears. This coats the cogs, chain rings and derailleur plates. I tune up all my friend's bikes each spring. The very first thing I do is I check the chain with a chain checker. Chain wear is almost unobservable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been workin' on the Chain Gang.... Arizona is filled with fine dust. It ruins chains that are "wet" lubed. Years ago I switched from wet (oil based) lubes to "dry" lubes to prevent infiltration of dust that was wearing out my chains in 1500+/- miles. (Also very dirty and made for everyday epic cleanup periods). I've used other teflon and/or parafin based lubes that did the job but required very frequent reapplication as the lube would migrate and/or disappear. T-9 on the other hand clings and stays in place for a much longer time! I get 4-600 miles before reappling lightly. The chains on my four bikes now last 3-4500 miles before replacement. Completely remove any trace of old (or original) lube before applying T-9 the first time. This will guarantee adherance to the metal. Allow overnight to dry! Just wipe the chain with a wet "baby wipe" every couple of rides. Perfect product, perfect results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all-purpose solvent and lube Put this on my dirty chain and it ate everything else away, almost like a degreaser would. Then it ran smooth and buttery. Also put it on my brake and shifter cables, then disassembled my shifters and put a drop of this lube on every component in there. They shift better than ever now. Lasts a long time. I like that it dries to a thin waterproof wax finish. Impressed by the quality of this lube, I used it on a few non-bike related items as well. I oiled my pocket knives with it and applied some down inside a padlock to keep it working smoothly. Absolutely no complaints on either count!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lube to date!! I have tried many lubes in my years of cycling; you can see my review of other lubes on this website, and this is by far the best lube I have ever used. It almost magically picks up no dirt and keeps the drive train VERY clean. It lasts for many, many miles before needing to be reapplied and doesn't wash off easily. When it is due for reapplication simply wipe the chain down, apply, let dry for 2 or more hours and then wipe off excess! Excellent lube!! Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from T-9 excellent quality and value. This lube has so far outperformed the others I've tried in terms of its effectiveness at lubrication on my chain, (I haven't used it elsewhere yet, but plan on doing extensive winter lubrication prep. with it on my winter bikes), keeping it cleaner longer. Once you apply, and I did so sparingly, one drop per chain link, and let it dry for at least two hours per directions on bottle, there wasn't even any excess to wipe off (and attract dirt and build grime). Chain has remained clean for two weeks now, riding every day at least ten miles, as we've had very nice late-October weather. Will update when wet weather arrives over next week.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS LIKE A CHAMP! had tried every available lube out there. For me,this one does the BEST all around job. Instead of having to constantly switch from a WET lube to a DRY lube depending on the conditions. I typically get 250=3000 miles between lubes. I figure if BOEING created it for there gear,it's gotta be good enough for my bikes. I was right. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is Great Stuff I've used T9 on my cables and chains for a long time -- more than 15 years I think. I live in the southeast US, bike in and around lots of sand and loose soil. T9 is the best I've used. In my experience, better than TriFlo and Phil tenacious oil (and all the others I've used that I can't remember). It's cheap enough�?�give it a try and I think you'll like it. Oh, and it's best to apply the lube to your chain the day before a ride to give it a chance to dry to a nice waxy film so as to minimize dirt and sand sticking to it.
