Trek 120 carbonmonnet said:Yes. A bit of anti seize grease is just the thing. Don't know what you're riding but chances are, even if it's a carbon frame, there will be an alloy sleeve in the seat tube. If you don't grease the seat pin and sleeve will seize together making any future adjustments very difficult.
Hope you've got a torque wrench to tighten it up just enough but not too much.
Steve's right but check you've not got an alloy sleeve in there. I'm not sure about Trek 120's but I was surprised recently to discover an alloy sleeve in a Kuota frame. Carbon does stick to alloy. The seat post took plenty of penetrating oil before it came out.Steve Austin said:
Glad I clicked on this link today, I have a carbon seatpost and I've just bought a carbon frame. Cheers for the link Steve, have just ordered some of that Pace grease.Steve Austin said:
