I'm a newbie, and I need tor replace my seat post. I hope this is in the right forum.
I currently have a 26.4 alloy seat post, and need a longer one. I was fitted at a bike shop today, and the post is too short. They don't stock this size. So I will buy online. I don't understand what "alloy" means here. When I install, do I need to grease the alloy seat post? What should I use to grease it, if anything? My current seat post has not been greased. It's lasted since 1989. This is not a high end bike. It is a steel bike.
Thanks for any help. By the way, it is hard to find a 26.4 sized seat post that is not aluminum. I need something that will hold 275lbs, so aluminum is out.
