Does anybody use Metalube in his bike?

I have not heard of it either. Are you speaking of a specific product? Possibly chain lube?

Which one of their products are you using?

Only thing I would be careful of is any affects it might have on a wet clutch. Just because some people have used it in a bike I'd have reservations as to if it has been used in your specific models. Sometimes safe for bikes means it's safe for bikes that have a dry clutch because that was the limit of how many hipsters they had available to donate their warranted Ducati scramblers.... and that is the limit of their experience because they didn't have time to test it on 10 different manufacturers and all their various models. Just food for thought.

I'm a bit skeptical. If it really worked that well, why don't they just make it an oil instead of an additive? They say add every 60k miles or once a year, but what about the next oil change that drains most of it out?
