Eric, Yes, I'd probably say it is. A little goes a long way. It has a sort of soapy feel with a grit that doesn't scratch chrome. I've used some pretty intensive chemicals over the years, and this is one that I comfortably can use without gloves and yet it really does the job. Non-flammable and no appreciable odor, either. Back when we both used it and sold it in the shop I don't recall it being particularly expensive, compared to some of the Schwinn bike care products. But again, it goes a long way. It is really amazing stuff. Just remember to replace the lid so it doesn't dry out. Regards, John Wilson Greensburg, PA USA

I'll have to go with Jay on this one. I started using Quick Glo back in my '60s-'70s bike shop days, great for all those chrome Schwinn fenders and rims. My last purchase was a few months back on ebay, but I believe a google search will reveal other sources.
