Is it "harmful" to use baby oil and Vitamin E Oil on a bicycle?
especially when I used the brakes. It did not seem that it was natural noise as the brake pads press against the bike wheel.There was screeching and "moaning" coming from what seemed to be parts near the wheel. Not just the wheel itself. . So when I got to my workplace there was no Thee in One oil. I thought I would use baby oil and vitamin E oil which there was a bottle each of in the office.
I put some baby oil and Vitamin E oil on the gears and almost all places where there were joints or moving parts. Then I rode my bike back home and it was completely silent and when I went up a very steep incline the pedaling was easier and smoother.
Then for days afterward the bike was silent without squeaking. I got better results than when I use There in One oil. The bike often starts squeaking again a day after using Three in One oil. With baby oil the bike stays silent for a longer time. But then is it harmful to the mechanism or the material of a bike to use baby oil or vitamin E oil on it?
