how to tell if stem and seatpost clamp are carbon friendly?
Hi pretty much what the tittle say.
I ordered a new stem to use on a carbon ec70 bar but I read some stem are not carbon friendly.
Also same for the saddle as I have a carbon rail saddle coming my way. Seat post ea70 offset.
It'll work, at least I've never had any issues with alloy stems and a carbon bar, just don't over tighten (aka use a torque wrench, you need inch pound one),also the brake lever/shifter mounts too. There is also some type of compound to put on the parts like anti-seize but for carbon.
