Experience with Dark Matter?

I did a little bit of searching in the forum and have learned it is a type of ‘dry lube’ suspended in isopropyl alchohol. I can see what they are and how they work.

At this point, I’d like to hear the actual experince from you guys. I’m a little picky when it comes to the condition of a bearing like noise and how it feels all around. And want to see by how much it slows down a bearing comparing to keeping it dry.

Thanks guys.


Dark Matter is excellent. I bought some on a recommendation from a friend. It both quiets and smooths out a bearing while remaining totally unresponsive and long lasting. Really good stuff!!


I’ve used it and it works great but I’ve also heard that it dries out in the dropper over time.

Is there a way to remove the dry lube if I accidentally put in too much or if I just don’t like the feel of it?

As far as I found, you may fill up the dried out bottle w/ isopropyl alchohol to bring it back to life.

Good point. It gets me wondering too.

A normal bearing cleaning would do the trick, there’s really nothing magic about dry lube.
