This on every bearing on the bike.
Apparently it's what hope use on their freehubs.
If it can keep seawater out it's good enough for a push bike 👍
I got that tub from eBay.

DT Swiss recommend their "Special Grease" for their ratchet system. It is red in colour. The grease is Molykote TP42 based but I believe DT Swiss also mix it with some mineral oil. On a ratchet system the grease needs to be one with a strong bond to the metal surface whilst needing at the same time to be used very sparingly. It is a very different grease to one you might use for bearings etc.
