Nye Rheolube is a bit on the light side (imo).

Nye Uniflor 8512S is pretty ideal, if you can find the stuff. Single tubes are available, and there probably is a distributor in your area. Your local bike dealer should have something similar.

Basically, it's a translucent synthetic (PTPE) grease with teflon (PTFE) in it. Brand doesn't matter. A little goes a long way. Don't use a thick sticky type.
