two types of assy. paste....

clamp is scratched up, but bike is new?

sending bike to a shop, but has two types of assy. paste on hand....

online "bike shops" don't uncrate new bikes, then crate them back up.

"I'm assuming that QR seatposts would be awfully hard to close if too much pressure is being applied to the seat tube/seatpost."
seat posts don't "close", and certainly aren't "QR".

red flags waving.... please put the tools down, and step away from the bicycle.
