Spray Lube for bearings

Whats the best lube in a spray can for bearings to keep them running free after cleaning? Anything a little thinner than WD40 available?

Are you talking about oil lubrication, as in WD40, or the graphite spray stuff, like a dry lubricant?

WD-40 isn't a lubricant... its a "Water Displacement" compound. Used to keep things from rusting.. etc...

tribo or biotech... these are actually industrial lubricants made to protect and last.

i have heard from industry insiders that royal oil is actually peanut oil, mineral spirits, and food coloring... not sure how these would protect or lube your bearings or other moving parts...
