Carbon seat post with steel frame
Is there anything in particular that I need to know about putting a carbon seat post into a chromoly frame? Right now I have an aluminum seatpost that's too short. To use it I put a little grease on it and clamp down the quick release bolt. Is there a different procedure with a carbon post?
Older than dirt
Special grease for carbon.
Most manufacturers of carbon fiber seatposts recommend the use of "carbon assembly paste" or "carbon install compound" not grease.
