    Default if you can read this, grease your seatpost

    Just a public service announcement. Save yourself some easily mitigated heartache.
    Might be a good time to check those headset bearings while you're at it.

    Thank you. Just did that on a functional beater boxbike. Not before time. But, thankfully not too late either. Thank you.

    I like carbon paste/gel instead... not so much in a headset though! That reminds me, has anyone ever used carbon paste/gel for their stem and steerer that resulted in their headset being contaminated with the stuff?
