Alfine Oil

Alfine Oil

I have just bought a Shimano Alfine SG S700 hub gear. The cost of the lubrication oil for routine maintenance is very high. Can you recommend a suitable alternative at a reasonable price?

Good results may be obtained using Automatic Transmission Fluid (or ATF), which is available from any auto parts store.
