Carbon seatpost and aluminum frame
#1
I'm putting a carbon seat post in an aluminum frame. Does it matter what type of grease I use?
thanks

I really would not suggest any. If I am right and hopefully someone will verify or correct me that being it is a Carbon material it should not be greased or anything.
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

The carbon seat post came with grease. I'll be taking the seat post off to do maintenance. I've been told not to clamp onto a carbon seatpost due to poss damage.?

Hmm maybe I was thinking the opposite carbon frames should not have grease in the seat post tube?

I think you want carbon paste, not grease, for the carbon seat post.

Something like (this is not an endorsement): http://www.bikesomewhere.com/bikesomewhere.cfm/product/280/2443/19159
