    New question here. PF30 BB Install in Carbon BB Shell?

    Hello, everyone. I'm ready to install a Race Face PF30 BB adapter in a Jet9 RDO. The BB adapter is aluminum, and the frame shell is carbon. Should I grease the shell and cups when installing, or should it be done dry?

    Thanks!

    Haven't done this myself, but aluminium will corrode and stick to carbon if not greased, preventing removal in the future - you may need a carbon specific grease. I would wait for more replies before doing the deed.
