    Seatpost squeeks

    Hi,

    A while ago, I had a very loud creak and the LBS mechanic applied some grease to my carbon seatpost (2008 ish Roubaix). He told me the name and of course I forgot it. Creak is back.What was the name and where can I get it. Apparently normal grease is bad for carbon?

    Thanks.

    probably fiber grip.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    I'd guess just generic "Carbon Assembly Paste", Tacx makes some fairly cheap.

    Was it gritty? red?
