I use lithium grease. Bought a tub from Earnest Doe's agricultural merchants 3 years ago and it is still going strong. I reckon it will see my cycling days out. If it's good enough for tractors and combined harvesters it's good enough for my bike!

I use Castrol LMX grease, £4 for a 400g cartridge. It's thin enough to squirt down an 18g hypodermic needle so you can get it accurately onto derailleur pivots. It's good for bearings too. I have no idea how it stacks up against othe greases but it seems to work OK.

I use it. No problems so far, it's less damaging to the hands for those of us that hate working in latex gloves.
