I'm trying to move the seatpost on my road bike and it's extremely tight. I was going to put some lube on it but I remember reading somewhere that carbon fiber doesn't react well with all types. Any sugestions?
Read up a little more and it seems like I had corrosion. Cleaned it out and everything looks good. From what I read, it seems like the no grease on carbon thing is somewhat of an old wifes tale. Even Zinn is recommending that you grease the CF if installed into Alum or steel.
