    Question on installing MegaEXO BB

    I have a FSA Gossamer MegaEXO and had a quick installation question. When installing the crank through the BB do I need to grease the part of the crank that goes through the BB?

    thx,
    Dave

    I'd grease it just to reduce water incursion and prevent corrosion. The spindle doesn't rotate relative to the bb bearing's inner race so friction and wear aren't issues.
