OK, I searched first and read many threads about carbon seatposts seizing in an aluminum frame, or alum post in carbon frames. But I've got a chromoly frame - Reynolds 531 (that is chromoly, isn't it? ... or a different alloy?)
Tomorrow, I want to remove my alum seatpost, and install a carbon post I got in trade tonight.
Do I grease, or not? and if not, do I have to super-clean the seat tube? Some threads say yes, some say no.
Btw, I this is a loooong Specialized mt. bike seatpost (carbon wrapped aluminum?) - about 350mm I think. I appear to need less than half of that for my road bike. Would you guys cut, or just let all the extra post sit in the seat tube?
