    Creaking seat post?

    After the downhill season I put my reverb back on my hd and it started creaking. Are you guys using carbon paste or have another remedy for his. 3 years on my hd and this is the first "creaking" I've had 😊

    Start with carbon paste and see if it goes away. Also disassemble the seatpost head and grease where the seatpost head touches the lower post and where the clamp touches the seat rails. Grease the bolts and nuts liberally. If that does not work, I've had to resort to light grease in the seat tube. Just be careful (use a torque wrench) not to overtighten the seatpost clamp, as it will bind the reverb.
