I have one of the cable lubers that lets you use a spray can of lube to lubricate your cables with out removing the cable from the bike. It uses a spray can of lube that has plastic straw attachment. I can buy all kinds of spray lube that has the straw included. Which one should I use? I would prefer to buy something from Menards or the Farm Store. What would do the job? I hate to go to a bike shop and pay $10 for a can of "motorcycle lube" when I am sure that the farm store has a similar product for less than half the money. Yes....I am cheap.

Anything with a liquid carrier which contains graphite is very suitable. The liquid carrier evaporates and leaves the dry graphite behind. Just about anything else also attracts dirt, but if you cannot find one with graphite, then a liquid silicon lube would be next. Do not use WD40 as it is actually a penetrant rather than a lubricant.
