Polyeurea grease is virtually washout proof and it doesn't have any metal based soaps so it doesn't engage in galvanic corrosion with other metals.

I use Lucas X-tra heavy duty grease, it's quite cheap, but you can get it in 50g tins from cbennissupplies on ebay as well, it's the same stuff:

Good luck, Kret
The point about copper grease is not correct. In a bit more details on anti seize for bicycles.
