Teflon tape vs grease.
When dealing with bottom brackets, I've always used grease. I caught an archived thread that talked about this and some users debated which was the better one to use. I figured I'd ask here due to the fact I have a new frame coming and I'll be rebuilding my bike to be set up on this frame. What do you guys think? Shall I grab some teflon tape for the BB installation on the new frame, or does grease do the same trick?
Dumb question - is teflon tape what's often referred to as, plumber's tape?
