- Do I need to use carbon grease with this seat post?
Ordinary grease will be fine. Its there primarily as a barrier to prevent corrosion. No need for carbon grease in this application, unless you’re having slipping issues with normal grease.Posted 4 years ago
Carbon grease is used on carbon frames or seatposts as petroleum based greases can cause the carbon to swell.crashtestmonkeyMember
Paste serves 2 functions, its composition doesn’t cause the post to swell and it contains small granular particles that increase grip, reducing the tension needed in the clamp.
I got a tube of Tacx for a few quid which should last years, and is cheap insurance for 3 carbon posts and a carbon frame.Posted 4 years ago
