    Titanium with aluminum seat post.

    So I just got this lynskey ti mountain bike bike and I am using a aluminium seat post (A thomson elite). Do you use grease like you do with aluminum with the seat post? Is there a ti specific lubrication to use?

    Thanks.

    Grease will work, but anti-seize compound will work better for Ti applications. There are several types of anti-seize, so make sure what you buy is intended for Al or Ti, and not copper. Auto parts stores usually sell several types.

    You should just ditch the Thompson and go with a Kent Eriksen Sweetpost. But yeah, anti seize is what you need
