My son just bought a new mountain bike and purchased all the chain lubricants etc etc the bike shop sells you.  They smell so bad.  We looked on the net and found this.... it is excellent.

Telegraph Magazine
As if cycling could get any more ecologically virtuous, we've found Green Oil for bicycle chains... It keeps those two wheels moving without the petrochemicals or teflon.
The Observer Magazine
... the point is, that this stuff is as green as you'll get.  Unlike most chain lubes this one doesn't contain any nasty petrochemicals and it's fully biodegradable... As they say, every little helps.
Dirt Magazine
... Despite being biodegradable there's no worries about it not hanging about long enough to protect your chain. In use the oil is easily applied accurately thanks to the nozzle top and stood up to everything but the wettest winter rides without need for reapplication.

MBUK 9/10
... It works as well as regular toxic lubes too, keeping your spinning easier and greener than ever.
... I've used Green Oil on a variety of bikes since early this year, so it's seen off the tail end of the winter and start of summer... - it works as well if not better than the gear oil I usually employ... It works as well as regular toxic lubes too, keeping you spinning easier and greener than ever...
Velovision Magazine
Aside from being environmentally friendly it lubricates as it should and I certainly think that my oil for the bikes in future will be nothing but Green Oil.
Green Living Review
What's happened after 6 weeks and 750km all conditions riding (NONONO... I have ridden much more during the last 6 weeks, 750km is completed with my unit)?
Honestly? Nothing! There is no need taking care of my chain and chainlube, because Green Oil works brilliant.  The lube is one of the best all conditions chain lube what I have ever used.
