So - plenty c456 owners out there - hoping someone can help with an assembly question and actually a carrying the bike on a car question.
- When installing Hope headsets/BBs instructions state to liberally apply waterproof grease.
Now the head tube and BB shell are lined, so no biggie there, but are there any issues with grease (e.g. finish line ceramic) getting onto the carbon frame on the outside around these fittings where the metal liner is bonded to the carbon frame - does that cause any damage?
- seatposts - anyone use alu post inside the c456 frame? Is it best to do that dry? Seen loads of stuff about carbon posts and using fibre grip but what about this way round? And do you stuff your frame if you start raising/lowering the post regularly (assuing you won't have a dropper)
Waiting for a response from on-one on this, but anyone else know?
- Carrying a c456 on a car bike rack ... now here's something I'd never considered - anyone asked on-one? (I've tried, but phones really busy at the mo' by the looks of it) so wondering if anyone else has asked?
Read some stuff about not using mounts that grip the top tube on carbon bikes due to the crushing load placed on the frame.
Possible worry as i only use a carrier that clamps onto the top tube !! and that's all I'm going to have
