About to install a new dropper post on my bike, and I'm getting conflicting info on the internet about grease...so I'll ask here, on the internet.
Should i put grease, carbon paste, or nothing on the seatpost to frame? It's a carbon frame. XFusion dropper post.

slightly off topic but does carbon paste prevent corrosion/bonding of the dropper to carbon frames?

i recently had to remove a dropper that was seized in a carbon frame, it was a harrowing experience. the dropper was dickered but the frame was fine.

In theory it should, the mechanic guild seems to be torn on the subject though.

It helps but honestly the only way to prevent seized post is to remove it every month or 2 and clean and lube .

This is where I started getting mixed/conflicting info on the interwebs.

Carbon paste. It'll scratch the shit out of your nice post though if you care, so don't insert it past how far you need it.

What did you do to remove it? I have a Reverb that’s currently stuck in my carbon Mach 429 frame. I don’t care if I trash the post.
