Dynamic Assembly Compound

I just read about this stuff on the FSA website and was wondering if anyone has used it to calm down
the creaking that can occur at carbon joints. They say it can be used on carbon fiber and it reduces
the torque needed to secure a CF joint by 30% .
Does anyone know a source for this stuff ? It sure sounds better than grease.

It should be available in a week or two. You'll probably be able to get direct from FSA.
Tacx also has a similar product coming out around the same time.

I have a syringe of the TACX stuff at the shop. It seemed to help with the clamping force issue I had on one bar/stem combo. I don't know if it helps with noise though. QBP carries it so any LBS should be able to order it.
