    any longer term feedback on this yet? (well couple weeks)

    I've been seeing this and similar products for over a year and it looks interesting, though I can imagine it will not be perfect. But pretty cool it's now been picked up by a big company and available on the retail market nationally. It'd be great perhaps to see see this one day built into the manufacture of bikes and parts themselves.

    Well it wasn't muddy, actually quite dusty. I must say it did keep the dust off mostly, and when I washed the bike what little dust was on there came right off. More so than it usually would anyway. This stuff seems like it could be promising.

    My frame is mostly white (yeti 303rdh) so that white haze doesn't show. If anyone is concerned about it, I wouldn't recommend using it. Shouldn't show on light colors, but black will show the hazeyness real easy.

    did you happen to try it on tires or fabric? i'd imagine it wouldn't last too long on tires, but who knows. wonder if it would compromise the rubber at all.

    Wouldn't work too well on tires, would come off almost immediately by my guess. All the flexing and movement tires go thru and all. Fabric on the other hand would soak it up, I did a pair of shoes and it seems to work really good on them. I don't think I'd put it on shirts or shorts though. Possibly downhill pads/ armor, don't think it would last longer than a day or two though.

    More or less the same thing. Which is not particularly good for normal use (despite the promotional videos saying otherwise).

    Thanks for the link. I'm kind of floored that few people seem to question the health or environmental impacts.

    How durable? Good for trail tools maybe?

    would be neat to have a chain lube like this, never leaves the chain.

    I've seen this but the hazy finish keeps me from putting it on my bike. Though I am really curious about 3M's Paint Defender System. Looks like it would be great for frames and lowers. http://3mauto.com/products/paint-defender/

    It's definitely not clear and has a tough texture too. But it definitely works with water, pretty cool actually. We'll see how it does with the mud tomorrow.

    It is not clear. Just tried it on a old lens. No go. Not cheap either $20.00. Going to see how it works on my stays tomorrow.

    I went out and bought it. Pulled the wheels, brake pads, and covered the stanchions / rear shock on my dh bike. I sprayed the whole thing down. I'm going riding tomorrow and I expect it to be muddy do to all the rain we've gotten recently. I'll let you know how it does.

    from what i've read, it leaves a cloudy finish that actually has some texture to it. best to do a test spray before using on anything.

    Holy shit! I'll spray it on my bikes and even on a muddy/crappy ride it will stay clean! Only question is : will it repel the mud out of the tire knobs?
