Zipper lube

What are you guys using to keep your storage bag zippers lubed that work well with dust? 1 day of riding and my storage bags were impossible to open/close.

Re: Zipper lube

I would not recommend anything oily or greasy...it attracts and holds the dirt and dust.

3 in 1 brand garage door dry lube goes on as a spray liquid and dries so that it doesn't attract dirt and dust while still lubricating.

Any spray on dry lube will work...the 3 in 1 stuff is just easy to find and is cheap.

I use this on all of my suspension points before every ride as well.

Re: Zipper lube

This is the white chalk like marking sticks used by welders and such?

Yes that’s the stuff. Pretty much any hardware store will carry it.

Does the soap stone leave behind any coloring?

Yes it’s white of course, but it washes off with water. With all the dust you say you are encountering, I’m going to guess that there would be no way you’d see any traces of it left after a ride.

I only use these at work to mark steel pipes with. If you aren’t careful you can wipe the marks off by accident with your gloves. $13 bucks is very expensive too, but they do last a long time.
