Default Bearing Oil?

I was just wondering what everybody is using for bearing oil. I have been using Trinity Royal Oil but I want to try something else. Thanks

I like the Acer oil better than the Trinity. Just seems to do a better job and keeps the bearing in better shape. I have noticed that this oil does not add any noticable drag either.

I've used Trinity's royal oil and it is thin with providing protection but I will be trying KREX graphite super lubricant. They say it's graphite colloidally suspended in petroleum product, we'll see how it turns out. Oh and it as thin or thinner than royal oil.

I use acer...buy it right from them. That bottle will last you a lifetime since you only need 1-2 drops per bearing. Nice pic on the front of it too Acer Chick

I've been using the trinity royal purple but i don't like it, it seems to add some drag to the bearings. I'll try the Acer, I really like Acer products.

I use tribo as a comm drop and a bushing lube. I've recently tried it in my bearings, and it seems to work fine. Good o'l fashioned Mobil 1 Synthetic 0W-30 works well...

I've also used Tri-Flow with great success.
