    With the exception of DU bushes [which are self-lubricating] – any metal to metal mating should be either lubed or thread-locked

    Are you supposed to grease the crown race itself, and the top of the bearing cartridges? I serviced mine at the weekend a couldnt remember as well so greased both.

    I use a bit of copper slip when I’m installing headset cups. Think I got the Finishline stuff which comes with a brush…the amount I use it, the whole pot should last me years

    dunno, i use bearing lock, works like grease duing instalarion and bedding in (helps things in and stops things squeeking like buggery). Then sets to stop them falling out/moving.
